Tough climbing in slippery conditions
2020年2月 • 夫妻情侣
This is a really tough hike, and we have done a lot of hiking. It's very rough, steep and rocky underfoot. It's very muddy and slippery particularly coming down and we were slipping and falling for a good couple of hours or more (ascent time 3 5 hours, descent almost 4 hours). Being a cold forest, most or the time we were in cloud so there was no view at the top. We had some good views coming down and the forest was lovely. Not a hijw I would recommend unless you have good walking boots, a stick, good ankles, and want to burn a lot of calories or are determined to climb all the volcanoes of Nicaragua or some similar goal.

Not worth it
2019年10月
I love to hike and I'm up for a challenge. If you're looking for a good hiking experience, don't climb Maderas. The work:reward ratio is way off. If you have a more intangible goal - want to climb every volcano in Nicaragua, or you really crave the muscle burn and are willing to risk a twisted ankle to get it, fine, just go in with the right mindset.

First, I'll say that our guide, Arlen, was good. I thought he might have given too much information, stopping at points along the way to talk at length, then setting off at a super fast pace that half our group couldn't match (and we were healthy, fit, young people who weren't new to hikes up mountains). But when we ran into trouble on the way down, he was a steady, helpful presence and we were really glad he was there, and it's those kind of situations in which you're really happy to have an experienced guide with you.

First, this hike is pretty darn hard. It's a steep incline, it's long, it's humid. The shade is nice and it does get a bit cooler at higher altitudes, but the trail after the first lookout gets rough - you're basically climbing up a narrow river bed. I'm okay with a steep climb, but the compounding effect of having to carefully place every step as you climb across big, muddy, slick rocks really adds to the fatigue quickly. I've done harder trails, but usually there's a payoff - views along the way, a unique destination at the end, something. At Maderas, the forest is cool but there are other ways to see cloud forests (I will say that I've lived in central america for a while. So I'm probably less impressed with the biodiversity than some because it's familiar, but I also know that there are many, many better hikes up volcanoes and through forests in the region). There are a few viewpoints along the way but they get less frequent the higher/rougher it gets, and at the end the laguna (which was way too shallow and muddy to swim in enjoyably) was underwhelming. Even the lookout point over the laguna, where we ate lunch, was uncomfortable.

Worst was the trip down. I will say - a couple of people in our group who were sure on their feet were able to sort of skip down, mitigating the treacherousness of the terrain by never keeping their feet in a spot long enough for the rock to shift or the shoe to slide. For the rest of us, it was a long, dangerous slog. We tried to place our steps carefully but there were still multiple falls, made more common by tired and unsteady legs. This is where the guide really became key - one of my companions fell hard a couple times and twisted a knee that was already a bit sensitive from previous injuries. It got pretty hard for him to continue, and the guide really helped him stay steady on some stretches. That said - he didn't have a choice but to come down himself. Apparently they have tried to carry disabled climbers down on pallets before, but the path is so rough that even experienced guides have a hard time when they can't see the ground because they're carrying a stretcher. All the rescue operations (according to what we were told, and it seems right) resulted in multiple falls and dropped patients, pain, and general danger. Moral of the story: you twist your ankle or sprain a knee or whatever, and you have to realize that you're basically on your own.

A lot of effort and you might bit see anything
2019年7月 • 夫妻情侣
Firstly there are two routes, one leaving from Finca Magdelena on the north side if the island, the other from Santa Cruz. We climbed from Magdalena and had a guide. Normally we wouldn't hike with guides although it proved helpful when the path splits as there are no indicators on the ascent or descent.

It is a tough climb. This mountain is wet all year round and so you will get wet and you will get muddy. You are under cloud forest canopy for 98% of the time, no need for sun cream but take but spray.

If you have hiking poles then these are a god send. If not, see if your guide can cut out some strong branches.

This hike is tough once you start climbing you just keep climbing. The path is rocky and slippery. It's around 3.5 to 4 hrs climb depending on your pace and how often you stop. We had 2.5l of water each.

Take dry/warm clothes for the top. It can get a little chilly in the wind and you will have sweated!

Packed lunch and a snack to boost you up.

Sadly if it's cloudy, which it tends to be you are unlikely to see anything. So it can be a bloody good workout with little reward. There are a two maybe three viewpoints on the way, otherwise you can't see anything on the climb.

An accident waiting to happen.
2019年7月 • 夫妻情侣
Let me begin by offering some context...we are an a active, healthy and fit couple. We run marathons, cycle long distances, hike various terrains and distances and generally involve ourselves in any physical activity opportunity. Given this, we were really excited at the prospect of climbing a volcano through a jungle.

In one word, however, this hike is dangerous. I am not risk adverse by any means, nor am I a health & safety inspectorate or indeed naive that such standards will vary between countries, continents and communities.

An accident (and a nasty one too) is waiting to happen on this climb. The path is quite simply treacherous. On the one hand you could say it’s all part of the adventure but, for us, it really sapped all the fun and sense of adventure out of the hike. The chance of a broken wrist or ankle, sprained ankle or knee, fall and/or serious knock to the head on a rock or indeed even worse is extremely high. I cannot really imagine how any of the above situations may be managed if they arose. ‘Carrying’ someone down would be pretty impossible and likely to cause subsequent injuries to either-or parties. Our guide certainly didn’t suggest to have any form of knowledge of basic first aid - for one he didn’t have a phone so that would have made it pretty difficult raising the alarm! I do, however, believe that this was a one-off and certainly not normal practice (he had just forgotten it on this occasion). Nonetheless, should there have been an issue, this would have proved a significant problem.

As highlighted we had a guide (suggested and arranged by our accommodation) and under no circumstances would I suggest you don’t have a guide. We went as a small group (x4) and, unless you specify that you want to go individually, it’s my understanding that local guides will take the opportunity to take groups of people up at once (this did in our case make the cost slightly cheaper). It is very possible that our experience was tarnished by a poor guide but, other than showing us the way, limited support or reassurance in terms of tackling this perilous challenge was offered. Being part of a group with only one guide also means that, if you’re planning on reaching the summit, then, unless the whole of your group are prepared to turn around, or, you feel you could navigate yourself back (certainly something I would advise against) then you’re in it for the long haul.

The half way point offers great views and, although not an easy ascent to this point, on the whole, do-able for an active/physically fit person. The second half is quite honestly awful and dangerous though.

Once you reach the top, it’s a complete anti-climax. You can’t see anything! You will however then descend to the lagoon (the lake within the lake). The route down to this continues to be hazardous and left us wondering even more so about how on earth we were going to manage the full descent. Once you reach the lagoon which, in theory is pretty awesome, again we found it to be a nonevent. A misty lake!

Our guide kindly used a knife another guide lent him (who was at the lagoon) to provide us and our group with strong tree branches to act as trekking poles for our descent. These were helpful but by no means an aid that significantly reduced the huge risks involved with this trek.

It is absolutely not my intentions to be a mood-hoover about this activity. For some, the thrill of the risk involved will be really motivating and exciting. Nonetheless I feel that an honest reflection about the fact that a nasty accident is waiting to happen needs to be highlighted.

If climbing a volcano is on your bucket list, keep it there for sure but, I’d certainly advise you seek a different volcano to hike rather than Maderas.

Bella Vista
2019年3月 • 夫妻情侣
Una Bella Vista sin duda la panorámica que ofrece el Volcán Maderas que cuenta con 1394 msnm que se ubica hacia la población de Altagracia.
Nosotros lo admiramos desde la PLaya Santo Domingo.
Se puede ascender con el plus de que tiene una laguna en la cima y es aconsejable la contratación de un guía.

Disfruta de la Isla Ometepe porque: ¡La VIDA...es un VIAJE!

Brilliant Tropical Hike
2019年7月 • 夫妻情侣
Volcan Maderas is covered in forest, which makes it a great place to hike if you burn easily! The top 300-400 meters are cloud forest; we couldn't see anything on the way up because it was too cloudy, but luckily on the way down, the clouds broke, and we got magnificent views of Concepción, the isthmus, and the lake. Like most hikes in tropical regions, this is tough. It involves getting very muddy and climbing, ducking, crawling, and rappelling to get to the crater. If you're the sort of person who enjoys those things, this is a fabulous hike. We hired a guide, which I think is necessary; while there is one main trail once you get onto it, there are lots of misleading paths on the way to that trail and no signs. Our guide was funny, considerate, and patient with our lackluster Spanish skills. I highly recommend him if you're in the Merida area! His name is Simeon, and his number is +505 (83) 26 36 61. The hike took us 8.5 hours (including a half hour lunch break), and we walked directly up a path from Merida, so no transportation was required. All in all, a challenging but fantastic experience.

2019年5月 • 夫妻情侣
Der Vulkan war der erste Vulkan, den wir je bestiegen sind. Wir hätten es aufgrund der vielen schrecklichen Rezensionen fast nicht gemacht und sind sehr froh es doch gemacht zu haben. Klar, der Weg ist anstrengend aber mir genug kleinen Pausen absolut machbar. Wir sind Anfang 20 und gut trainiert aber haben null Wandererfahrung. Der Weg ist anspruchsvoll mit vielen Steinen und Wurzeln, aber genau dies macht besonders Spaß. Oben angekommen war es zuerst zugezogen, aber nach kurzem warten hatten wir dann doch einen schönen Blick auf den See. Einziger Fehler den wir gemacht haben: viel zu viel Zeug in unseren Rucksack gepackt, welches wir dann alles mit hoch schleppen mussten.

It's hot and longer than you get told
2019年3月 • 好友
Put it this way. It's the easy volcano on the island ....! Upside, it's under a jungle canopy most of the way, blocking the intense sun. It's still hot. Is it easy, no. Is it hard, no. Our friend tells us it's 4.5 hours round trip. Our Volcano guide says it's 8 hours round trip. It's that! And the view, well ok.... you climbed a volcano. The view point 1.5 hours up is spectacular !!! Just as good if not better than Wineglass Bay in Tasmania. A Premier World walk. That was worth the effort here in Ometepe, just for that view. Stunning.

Long Day !!!! The Springs are just the tonic afterwards.

Amazing hike!!!
2019年2月 • 独自旅游
When I came to Ometepe I really wanted to hike the volcano Maderas. As I met two girls in the hostel who were into it as well we did in - on our own, without a guide. And that was the best decision ever! It was an amazing hike! We took the entrance close to Balgüe (Finca Magdalena) where we paid an entrance of three dollars. We left the hostel at 6:45am, perfect time for us because the first part of the hike is quite hot/humid. The higher you get the colder it gets, you're walking in rainforest and later in cloudforest. The hike itself is tough, but the surroundings are gorgeous and so impressive. Didn't meet anyone the whole day. First two hours were just uphill, well marked but humid! Then it got bit muddy and really steep for two hours but colder. Was there in dry season what was okay but I can imagine that it gets really muddy in rain season. The hike is def doable without guide if you have mapsme. Once you end up on a crossing its straight/right to the viewpoint and left to the lagoon. Would recommend to go the the lagoon first as clouds went away around 1pm and we had to wait for one hour at the viewpoint. To the lagoon it's really steep downhill, maybe 20minutes. To the viewpoint it's just 10 minutes uphill and you don't wanna miss the view! To see how the clouds passed by and opened the view to the lagoon was espectacular! We met one group with a guide and they went straight to the viewpoint but didn't wait there so the only thing they saw was clouds and that's a shame! They did not even go to the lagoon itself. The hike is doable if you're motivated! You need a lot of motivation as the path gets sometimes ridiculous crazy. We are all in good shape but not perfectly. I've been hiking a lot of times but I wouldnt call me experienced. I'm traveling for 7 month so far and as I was really sportive back home I didn't do any sports within the last 7 month. Just about 10 hikes. So you don't have to be in perfect shape if you have enough motivation (I had a loooot). We took the way back to finca porvenir as there was a good viewpoint in direction of the volcano concepción. Then we got lost and ended up at Zopilote. Arrived back in the hostel at 5:30 but that included waiting for 1 and a half hour uphill and getting lost in the way back. So plan a whole day for the hike!
