Site Update (May 1st 2013): All weather maps have been improved to make them much more useful for climbers. Animate either temperature or weather and move your cursor to any mountain location to see how the weather is forecast to evolve at various elevations. Because of the limited space on these large region maps, we can only show this at a subset of locations. We will add much more detailed maps very soon.

Cosigüina Climbing Notes
Luis Rafael Gasteazoro from NICARAGUA writes:
The Volcan Cosiguina is a privileged location in that from its summit you are able to appreciate The Gulf of Fonseca, the mountains of El Salvador, Honduras, and of course Nicaragua, its called the "Mirador de los Tres Paises": the three-country view.
The climb is about a three to six hour climb, depending on how far you want to take the vehicle.
Suggestions: Take plenty of water and a hat... the sun and temperature are about 30-38 C depending on time of day. I suggest starting the hike 6am (at the latest). You should be back in camp at around lunch time. It's a year round climb.
That being said, we own an ecolodge on the outskirts of the Volcan Cosiguina and specialize on this trip if interested you can contact us at Hacienda Cosiguina (you can Google us).
