My insane wife ran up this volcano. I opted for a more sedate walk. The views from the top are great, but be warned, the wind is strong enough to blow you off. Not so sure about where people have used stones to write their names. Almost graffiti.

Went for a run up here from my hotel (H10 Rubicon Palace). Bit of a steep climb on the way up, but well worth it. The views are amazing and you can go all around the top of the crater. Just watch out for the wind close to the edge!

Close to Playa Blanca and a pleasant walk even in the heat. Nice to walk into the crater and write your name out in the volcanic stones.

Great for a couple of hours walk. Fantastic views. Best to go early in morning when cooler. Take water with you as gets quite hot and humid.
