One half of Ometepe's twin volcanoes, Maderas is deceptively high and steep.

Much more difficult than the alltrails review. Definitely worth the challenge but don't be fooled, it's hard as hell. Mostly mud and monkey climbing so just be prepared, the way you go up is the same way back down. People with knee trouble might struggle.

Superbe rando, mais à mon avis c’est plus dans la catégorie hard que moderate. Un guide est vivement recommandé ne serait-ce que pour voir les animaux. La vue au premier view point est époustouflante. Malheureusement pour nous la suite était dans le brouillard.

There are two ways to get to top, the one less traveled is much harder and require ropes for last leg of climb. Enjoyed the challenge.
