Volcán Mombacho

Granada, Nicaraugua

Nicaragua is home to a string of volcanoes with varying levels of extinction—you can see plenty of active volcanoes in the country if you want—but the Volcán Mombacho is reassuringly dormant. Now, its greatest draw is its cloud forest, which has been turned into a 2,500-acre forest reserve known for its biodiversity. You can enjoy the scenery from below on foot, or take it in from above with a zipline tour.
