When I saw there were volcanoes near Granada, I knew I wanted to hike one. It would be my inaugural hike after the spectacular fall in September of last year that resulted in torn ankle ligaments, surgery, and a cast for a couple of months.
Our first stop on the guided hike of Mombacho was through a “tunnel” – two rock faces fairly close together that opened up to a breathtaking view of Granada and the coastline. Up and down, up and down through the forest with beautiful flowers, dense foliage, monkey and sloth sightings, and stunning views. And, best of all – no falls or injuries!

Oh, Mombacho! You’re bringing me back memories; I first went to Nicaragua in 1998, to Nandaime which is near Mombacho. I remember climbing up the mountain, into the fog and mist near the top. Lucky you!
It was such a beautiful hike, Richard! We were there on an incredibly clear day, so missed the fog and mist experience, but enjoyed it nonetheless.
