Nicaraguan scenery of the Pacific is marked by an impressive chain of 25
volcanoes that go across this region of the country. Some of these volcanoes
are still active and their spectacular eruptions scare the people that
live there. Most of these volcanoes have an easy access and if you decide
to climb up, your efforts will be rewarded by the unforgettable and breathtaking
view at the top.
Access: The entrance to the Park is located at the km 20 of the Managua-Masaya Highway. If you go to the volcano, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to visit Masaya too, whose market is like the cave of Ali Baba of craftsmanship.
This volcano is like a Nicaraguan symbol. It was frequently used in Ruben Dario's poems, a great national poet. If you want to remember a Nicaraguan scenery, the first thing that comes to mind is the Momotombo, with his younger brother the little Momotombo, both volcanoes bathing the Lake of Nicaragua. This volcano is still active and its activity generates energy through the Geothermal Station that is installed at its feet. The access to the crater takes about three hours of climbing and it's pretty easy.
