The walk is not difficult but tests you. The views are amazing at the top. I would suggest not to descend in to the summit, the earth gives way with every step , and the way out is back at the top of the volcano

You can really appreciate this volcano from the lake Nicaragua in the boat trip. It is quite majestic and it really blends with overall with beautiful Granada

Overlooks Granada. Compared to some of the other stratovolcanoes in Central America, rather ho hum. The Granadians have certainly made it into an expensive tourist destination. There is an unusual forest on its slopes that did not visit.

Yes, it's a volcano and it has real lava in the crater. Fantastic, I've never seen this before, and was so worth the trip. The visitor center was a bit dull, but nothing takes away from the thrill of this s deep crater with molten...More

You can definitely do it on your own! a tour guide is only required for the 2 longer hikes. You can do the basic 1-2 hour loop on your own.

You can contact Cafe Las Flores directly to reserve the zip line tour. It is fabulous. We have visited several times and they are very profesional and safety minded. Highly recommended.

Hi, There is only one crater you can do on your own. The other 2 offered by the park which you must do with a guide are El Tigrillo & Puma. We did EL Tigrillo. The lady we stayed with told us that the Puma one didn't go to... More
