More uphill grows a cloud forest – a quality in the Pacific only shared by the Mombacho volcano. A high humidity and a dense forest are the result of this climate. Furthermore, there is a lagoon in the inactive crater of the volcano. Volcan Maderas has great trails but are steep and can be only accessed by foot. As you hike you will come across petroglyphs and impressive views of Concepción volcano and the lake Hiking will get tougher from this point. The humidity transforms the trail into a muddy, slippery path. The more you ascend, the worse it gets, but the reward will be great  once you reach the summit. The guided hike will take up to 3 hours and at the top you'll get to see the lagoon on the crater of the volcano, monkeys howl on the background is quite a mystical experience.
