Mombacho Volcano and National Reserve
Hiking through the Mombacho Reserve gets you up close to a huge variety of orchids and wildlife, as well as the volcano’s cloud forest and dwarf forest. There are some species on the volcano that you’ll find nowhere else on earth. You can get to Mombacho and hike the volcano on your own, but most people book hiking trips with a guide (one difficult trail - the one that gives you access to the dwarf forest - requires that you hire a hiking guide). The Mombacho Nature Reserve is closed on Mondays, and only open on Tuesdays by appointment.
