After meeting for an early, but hearty breakfast in the QT office at 6 am, we leave León for 4-5 hour bus ride to the western most point of Nicaragua where a peninsula created by volcán Cosigüina stretches out into the Golfo Fonseca. Around 10 am we begin hiking through farmland and tropical jungle, and we reach the crater’s edge four hours later with plenty of time to set up camp and explore the crater’s edge. With a diameter of more than 2 km and a massive electric blue lake at its bottom, the crater is a wonder to behold. The summit also offers awesome views of Nicaragua, Honduras, and El Salvador, not to mention the Golfo de Fonseca and the Pacific Ocean. The following morning, we pack our gear and eat a good breakfast to fuel for the remainder of the hike. After climbing a fantastical tree and descending through lush jungle, we reach a town called Potosi where we can swim in a natural spring and jump on a bus to Leon after a good lunch in a local comedor.
