It was great. Good service and awesome weather. We took the 10:30 truck and we hit the biological station in 20 minutes. Up there they have this tasty coffee for just $ 0.30 a cup.

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 were really disappointed that we didn't get a chance to see the volcano because of the protest occurring in nicaragua. The tour company should have cancelled it then waste our money and time. Instead, we took horse carriage around granada market, but there's not...More

What an incredibly interesting and impressive place. From the time you drive through the 250 year old lava, you are going through an area steeped in history and rich in culture. We avoided the crowds and went in the afternoon. So we had the place...More
