Mombacho Cloud Forest




Just 15 minutes west of the historical city of Granada rests the luxuriant cloud forest of Mombacho Volcano. Reaching the base of the volcano, we will drive up to the summit passing numerous coffee farms. Once at the top we will visit the Biological center where we can learn significant information about the rich biodiversity of this unique tropical forest.

Afterwards we will get immersed into the fascinating world of nature. The well-designed trails will bring you into close contact with wonderful species of plants including colorful orchids, endemic bromeliads, several species of ferns, begonias, bamboo-palm like plants, mimosas and other special flowering vegetation to this type of forests. As you explore the one and a half kilometer trail you will find informative wood boards with explanations about the interesting natural history of the reserve.

A unique geological formation is the “tunnel”, an opening in the solid rock forming a steep sided path leading you to a covered-forest crater. As we continue our exploration through the exciting lush vegetation of Mombacho, incredible view points to one of the craters are enjoyed. If weather permits we can delight ourselves with spectacular views to the great Lake of Nicaragua, Granada colonial city, Apoyo volcanic Crater Lake, Masaya active volcano and surroundings.

Mombacho is not an extinct volcano, its fumaroles activity can be wonderfully observed at the open area of “Los quemados”. Before leaving this spectacle of nature we will hike through the “elfin forest” in Mombacho, a special type of tropical vegetation where trees do not reach their full size because of the continuous strong winds. These trees develop wider trunks to resist the wind and thicker leaves to absorb more water. At the end we take our transportation back to our final destination.
