Mombacho Volcano Nature Reserve

1. Mombacho Volcano Nature Reserve

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, driving to the mid-way point to stop at one of the coffee plantations. Learn about the coffee harvests, and sample the flavors of one of Nicaragua’s most popular exports. 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.

Nice easy day, lots of variety, met some great people

Thank you to Carlos our Guide, and to the 3 Canopy guides who made a great day better. Pick up from our hotel was 10 minutes late, but quickly forgotten as we chatted the other guests and Carlos: Crazy road up Mombacho - up the volcano The coffee stop Carlos led an interesting discussion about the volcanic history of the area Carlos picked out the sloth from a near invisible location, very cool, also explaining about local flora and fauna Incredible view of Granada and Lake Nicaragua Loved the Tunnel Canopy (Zipline) Tour was made more fun and exciting by 3 guides, lots of jokes and letting my wife and I go tandem with each other, and upside down. Tuanis!!!

The tour was informative, adventurous, and had amazing views. Our guide Gustavo was engaging and full of good information. I would highly recommend this tour.

A fantastic tour!

The hiking around Mombacho was beautiful and the canopy zip lining was so much fun. My husband and I both had a wonderful time on the tour.

Great day out! Very friendly & knowledgeable guide! Beautiful place!
