Things to do

Explore the Ceboruco Volcano and Admire its Animal Life

Go hiking, mountain climbing or rock climbing inside this crater of mystical beauty.

The volcano as well as its surroundings has become a geological park where you can go mountain climbing and mountain biking. It is over 7,400 feet above sea level and from its peak you can see some nearby towns. It is surrounded by remains of lava and volcanic rock, the products of its last eruption around the end of the 19th century. You can watch as the volcano’s crater exhales steam. Furthermore, it is home to five endemic plant species, of which three are from Nayarit and two from western Mexico. Observe the great diversity of animals that live around the crater such as wild cats, deer, hares, skunks, and raccoons.
