This was one of the highlights of my trip. It was quite a site to see. The crater was unbelievable. You can only stay 5 minutes at the sight because it is releasing vapors, gases, smoke etc. Also, in route you get to see where volcano ash and rocks litter the landscape and how the vegetation has grown back in some areas. There's a cross erected on the hillside where a priest blessed the site in order to discontinue the sacrifice of humans to the volcano/gods. I have some great pictures that I will upload soon. Also, near by there was a crater that is now a lake that is just amazing to see. While on your visit take to the market for souvenirs... haggle for the best price.
