Telica Sunset

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 3pm. The private transportation will pick up and drop off on Cristo Rey comunity, on the way to Chinandega. It is only suitable ground for vehicle 4 x 4, the terrain is very steep and rocky. The first part of the trek is steep and easy 1-hour hike, where you will enjoy the Nicaraguan beautiful flora and fauna, and learn many things about plants and animals thanks to our guides.

When you get to the top you can  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 one hour. The jeep will be waiting for us to bring us back at SONATI around 9pm.
