The Cosigüina volcano stands as a watchtower of the Cordillera de Los Maribios, which peninsula runs between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Fonseca. It has a height of 859 meters, and is one of the last Wildlife Refuges on the slope of the Pacific, surrounded by forests.
At the top of the volcano there is a Mirador called “Mirador de los Tres Países”, named because from the viewpoint you can see part of El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. The volcano offers four trails to climb it: the Path of the Guacamaya, Potosí, Jobo and Cape Horn. The hike up the volcano lasts approximately eight hours if it starts from the bottom of the volcano, or three hours if yuo go up by car the first half. The best way to plan the climb to the volcano is staying at one of the hotels near the volcano, where you can arrange transportation and a guide.
