It is possible to set off on various well marked tracks which edge the main extinct crater. Typically interesting are the natural sounds which are amplified by the crater.

Along the tracks, round holes can be found, from which hot water vapour is released. You can also find "mirador" to stop for a break at to admire Cocibolca lake, Apoyo lagoon and the city of Granada.

An interesting experience, which takes place on the escarpments of the vulcano, is the Canopy Tour.
