Length: 7.4 mi • Est. 5 h 59 m
One of the possible trails to access the Concepción Volcano, which is one of the twin volcanoes on the island of Ometepe and one of the most active in Nicaragua. It is characterized by its almost perfect cone shape, so its slope is quite symmetrical, however, it is quite steep and can be slippery, especially the last section so good physical condition is required. Upon reaching the top, it offers amazing views of the island.Show more
