Telica is an active volcano 30 km from Leon with six cones in the Los Maribios volcanic range. The crater is around 120m deep and it’s possible to see lava most of the days (except for some wet days in the rainy season).
Enjoy sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and many surrounding volcanoes during the sunset and sunrise. On the trail, we take many breaks to learn about the local flora and fauna. Telica can be done in 1 day (10 hours).
The trip starts at SONATI at 9am. You will be headed to the bus station to take public transportation to the entrance of the park (40 minutes ride). We start the trek at San Jacinto, at the bottom of the volcano were you will be able to see boiling mud pools! The first part of the trek is a smooth and easy 3-hour hike through the forest, where you will enjoy the Nicaraguan beautiful flora and fauna, and learn many things about plants and animals thanks to our guides.
After that, it gets little bit more challenging with a one-hour steep hike on the flanks of the volcano.
You will then reach the impressive crater (120 meters deep!) and enjoy the amazing view this 1061m high offers you. You will then enjoy an amazing and romantic sunset and if possible look at the lava inside the crater after that.
You will then head back to the bottom of the volcano for three hours. The jeep will be waiting for us to bring us back at SONATI around 9pm.
