Getting to: Mombacho Volcano
The entrance of the reserve is situated on the foot of the volcano. From there, you can take the truck that ascends the volcano four times a day. It is also possible to take you own car, but this has to be a robust four wheel drive vehicle and the driver will need some experience with driving uphill.
The Mombacho volcano is situated at a junction called El Guanacaste, at kilometer 50 of the highway between Granada and Nandaime. You could take a bus from Granada or Nandaime, or from Managua to one of those places and then to the other.
Taxis will also find the place. At the junction, it is about two more kilometers to the entrance of the reserve, so it saves some time when you take a taxi anyway from there to the entrance.
When driving your own car, you will see the signs when driving on the Granada-Nandaime highway. If you come from Managua, take the highway to Masaya. Pass Masaya, and then follow the signs that say Catarina (a couple kilometers after Masaya you will have to take a right). Continue going until the road ends. When this road hits another road (the highway from Granada to Nandaime), you will see the Mombacho right in front of you. Initially you should take a right, but when you really hit the other highway turn around to the left and then you'll see the signs.
