Overall a fantastic Ometepe experience. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an adventure. It’s not an easy hike by any means, but if you’re fit and willing to put in the work it’s well worth it. Highly recommend a guide (it’s mandatory) to help you navigate the terrain and show you the ropes. We hiked with Jose (number is 88574810) who was incredible. Very experienced, had a ton of knowledge to share, and kept us safe the entire time.

Hiked up Concepion Volcano with Lazaro. Sadly it was very socked in up top but still a great experience. Lazaro was a wealth of knowledge of the area and can tell he loves his job and to share this beautiful island with others. He was so helpful with us booking our ferries to Ometepe as well. Goes above and beyond. Whatsapp number is 50558403700

Had Lázaro Muñoz as my tour guide. He was super friendly, entertaining, and made sure that the entire group felt comfortable at all times. He adjusted to the overall group’s climbing level and provided ample amount of time for rest and photo taking. I would hike with him again! His number is 0050558403700.

I would have loved the hike if I had the right shoes! Don’t be like me be prepared and wear hiking shoes. If not, be prepared to slip and slide during the descent. Whilst the hike wasn’t physically draining, it was slippery coming down. My husband (who was wearing the right shoes) smugly absolutely loved it. A rewarding activity to do in paradise island. A big shout out to Carlos from Green Expeditions who was oh so tuani (cool). Thank you for making the experience enjoyable and helping me up when I fell!

The Volcano Concepcion hike is a super tough 8 hours with jungle, wind, loose rocks and lots of challenges. However, it was tremendous fun with Lazaro! He was a fantastic guide that will look after you every step of the way. His WhatsApp is: +505 5840 3700

We hiked Concepcion with a guide named Lazaro. It was his 398th hike and we had an incredible experience. The hike is challenging but so worth it. Lazaro made it such a memorable day sharing a lot about Nicaragua and allowing us to explore. Awesome guy. The views are unforgettable. If you’re on Ometepe you have to do this hike. Even if you don’t make the summit it’s so worth it. The volcano is present anywhere you are on Ometepe. Hiking it has an oddly spiritual component to it because it loony so large. Do the hike and call Lazaro!!

I visited Volcan Concepción on January 3rd, 2023. Be prepared because the hike is INTENSE!. You definitely have to take very good hiking shoes and plenty of water and snacks. Me and my friend weren't prepared, I was wearing some running shoes with a little bit of grip and it didn't work. We did a 9 hour hike getting to the crater and returned to the parking lot. I fully recommend having a guide if it's your first time, especially if you are a tourist. We hired Arling Hernandez Barrios and you can find him on Facebook. Excellent!! person, he is very knowledgeable and he shares a lot of information pertaining Ometepe island and Nicaraguan history. Don't be afraid to ask him anything. My last advice would be be ready physically and mentally for an extreme workout. Good luck!!

Great hike! Very fun! A bit difficult, but in a good way. It feels great to reach the top and see the view.
Our guide, Lazaro, was great! He is very professional and very nice. He knows the trail very well as he has done it so many times.
I highly recommend going with Lazaro on this hike.

We had a group of three and went with a guide named Lazaro who has a ton of experience (He’s hiked to the top of Concepcion over 300 times!). He was extremely professional, polite, fun, and hilarious. He made us feel very safe the entire time and I wouldn’t have wanted to do the hike without him. We felt extra safe because he’s a certified guide and has done the hike so many times. His number is +505 5840 3700. His prices were also very fair! I would definitely recommend Lazaro to any of my friends or family.
