Granada- (November 2012) I loved this town- all the colorful houses and buildings- we got the best massages and had such an amazing breakfast- we also explored Lake Apollo

Masaya Volcano- (November 2012) an easy day trip from Granada- there are a few walking trails you can walk up to this smoking volcano- you can see the magma center lava inside as well- it’s a steep hike but so worth it- we also went inside the bat cave

Ometepe Island- (November 2012) we took a boat across to Ometepe Island – it was a bit of a sketchy boat ride – we were told there are bull sharks in the water which made it even more exhilarating – Ometepe is an island formed by two volcanoes coming out of Lake Nicaragua- Conception Volcano & Maderas Volcano

Maderas Volcano- (November 2012) we chose to do Maderas over Conception because of the petroglyphs and cause the hike was much shorter!!!! They also said there was a high chance of no view so we decided the petroglyphs, coffee & cocoa fields and climbing into the lip of a dormant volcano was our best option if we were not gonna get a view
