Volcanoes are such creative, as well as destructive, forces of nature. Mombacho is not an extinct volcano although it has been a long time since the last eruption occurred in 1570. On our day trip to Granada and Lake Nicaragua, we could see Mombacho for...More

Mombacho is impressive to behold. It is not considered extinct, but not active, either. It rises in a majestic fashion in the distance. I observed from afar, but wouldn't mind a close-up visit.

We only went on the shorter hike thru the cloud forest but our guide spent several hours explaining the vegetation & helping us to spot animals. The temperature was also a nice break from the heat of Granada.

I can definitely recommend going to Mombacho. It’s a bit expensive to go up to the top (20$US p.P.), but it’s much better than to walk, since there is not much to see on the way up. The trails are well done and beautiful. We...More

We did not do the zip line as we’ve done others in Costa Rica that were much higher and longer.
