Nicaragua has many nature reserves, hills, mountains, and volcanoes for hiking. In some of them, especially nature reserves, there are established trails for hiking. Some of them are the Mombacho Volcano, which is a private reserve that offers 3 trails that vary in distance and time (2-5 hours). Another nature reserve is Indio Maiz, where hiking is allowed only with a local guide and for a limited time. Another option with trails for hiking is La Garnacha, a rural community within a nature reserve. Besides hiking, the place offers other activates as for volunteering in agricultural, vermiculture, cattle, and medicinal plant processes. Other nature reserves in Matagalpa, Jinotega, Nueva Segovia were originally coffee plantations; now people may hike through these mountains and enjoy pure air and impressive views.
Another type of hiking, a more adventurous hiking, can be performed on volcanos. On the Pacific side of Nicaragua, there are about 10 accessible volcanoes with heights varying from 700-1,700 meters (about 2,300 to 5,600 feet). Hiking or climbing these volcanoes may take between 5 to 10 hours. It is a unique experience within vegetation, rocks, sand. One of the best things is the view at the top.
On the other hand, camping is not so common in Nicaragua, and there are no specific sites for camping. Nevertheless, camping is accepted in many nature reserves and volcanoes-only with a granted permission.
