Another active volcano in Nicaragua is the Telica. Telica volcano is continuously emitting gas and ash and lava can be seen at the bottom of the crater. It is believed that the San Jacinto Hot Springs are connected to the volcano. With a height of 1.061 meters, Telica is not as high as San Cristobal, which makes the climb less difficult. The surroundings are typical tropical dry settings.

Today’s Granada is a delightful town, its streets are lined with Spanish-style houses with large wooden doors opening onto cool interior patios. A wonderful walking city, although some buildings appear to be on the verge of collapse, many others have been beautifully renovated and now function as restaurant, hotel, or residential home. A great way to get a nice overview of the city is by ascending the towers of the La Merced church.
*We suggest you walk around the city and maybe enjoy delicious lunch in “La Calzada” (not included).

Around 4:00pm depart to Masaya Volcano where you will watch parrots returning to their unusual home: Santiago`s active crater.
