Full description

Depart Granada for the towering Mombacho Volcano, a 45-minute drive from the city center. Travel by 4WD vehicle to the foot of the active volcano, which has luckily not erupted since 1570! Start your ascent to the summit, and continue to 2 dormant craters covered in dense cloud forest of moist evergreen leaves and ethereal sheets of fog. A 2-hour hike awaits at the top, with fantastic views of Granada, Lake Nicaragua, Las Isletas, and the Laguna de Apoyo. Walking along well established trails to an altitude of 3,735 feet (1,115 meters), keep your eyes open for unique flora and fauna, such as red-eyed frogs. Mombacho is home to more than 700 different plant species, including exquisite orchids and dwarf forest, some endemic to the area.

Thanks Dave!

David was an excellent guide, very informed, we learnt heaps!! He was such a happy dude, totes appreciated him being there to show us a great time in the rainforest, but he should be talking people out of jumping off buildings for a living!! Awesome buzz, never felt better!! Totes made our trip absolutely epic!! Cheers <3

value, fun

Great value for a fun tour. The landscape is stunning and I think I saw more varieties of fauna than I did the rest of my life added together. The guide spoke excellent English and was able to answer all of our questions without hesitation.
