We went there for our last day of vacation in Nicaragua with a lot of hope cause everyone told us it was the best volcan to trail.
Finally, we wanted to do the « puma » tour which is the hardest one and couldn’t ... because we didn’t have enough cash !!!! First time it happens to us in Nica !
We were 3, 1800cb to get to the top, then 18$ to have a guide to do the tigrillo tour (the middle one) , plus 4$ each for the ticket.
Even if the trail was nice out there, I have to admit I’m kinda disappointed of the global prestation.
By the way we had the tour with Estella that was very nice. The best part of my experience I think.

We took a taxi to the entrance of the park and then paid for transport to the top and a 1 1/2 kil. walk in the cloud forest. The transport was 4 x 4 which we needed going up. There is a nature centre at the top. We took the short trail around the crater. It was beautiful and much cooler than in Granada. Milton, one of the park rangers, was knowledgeable and friendly. He actually grew up in the area and told us about the flora and fauna. The views to Granada, Lake Nicaragua and the Masaya Volcano were very good. This was an excellent half day outing,

We were the only ones in the trail. The hike is challenging 3 hours of climbing mostly steps uphill. Views cannot be beat you have lush cloud forest fumeroles and 360 views of the area. Time your arrival with the Jeep

A Must see and-do book a Night Tour well worth the Time and Cost what you see will take your breath away. When have you last been or have ever been on an active Volcano. I say no more. Great for all ages in several years who knows what will take place your-looking at History.

We visited Mombacho in our small hire car. As a tip book a tour as we couldn't go all the way to the top in our car only a half way point. The tour leaves several times a day but suggest you book so you can take in the whole volcano. However halfway is a cafe and small coffee plantation. The drive up was amazing and scenery blew me away! Just make sure you book a tour!
