Do take the time to visit the area. The visitor centre at the southern end of the park is very good, and free. The drive up the western side of the volcano, around the northern rim and down the eastern side into Santa Cruz is breathtaking. Allow time for stops to admire the jaw dropping views, but only if you... More

I liked everything about it is spectacular. There are lots of trails for novice and expert hikers.The vehicle access is restricted to certain areas and you have to apply for a place in the visitor center.

The office offers maps, suggestions for the various trails, restrooms, vending machines, a small interactive center and a movie viewing room of the park offerings. The staff is extremely helpful with all inquiries. There are... More

Good day trip with no uneccessary stops (Thomson's coach tour). Could do by car if adventurous (lots of bends, drops etc). Tour guide was terrific - spoke almost non stop for 6 hours and was so helpful / interested / interesting.
