Our party of 6 climbed Montana Roja today. Found the path easily enough. There are signs. Parked at the start of the path. Off we went then. First part of the climb is probably the steepest.

We walked from the Gran Castiilo at 630 one morning in July 14. Took 90 mins. Walked up in the cool! Windy at the top, but great views and how often can you say you walked up and into a volcano?

This wonderful walk to the top of an extinct volcano is a must if you are staying in Playa Blanca! It's not too hard going on the walk up the side, but when you get to the top your will realise its all worth it!

It is quite a steep climb but if did it wearing Flip flops it can't be that bad. Worth the trip up for the views. I have been up twice now and the wind at the top is unbelievable.

A hard climb if you are a bit older, but worth the strain.Best to go early in the morning , that way it is not too warm.
