We went on this tour with a local company after climbing Cerro Negro in the morning. They were a very professional and it was worth paying a little extra to have a personal tour just for four of us. This trip involved quite a long...More

Great scenery, easy and enjoyable hike. But you can't really see any lava because of the smoke. Still worthy the trip as it is beautiful up there

Did the sunset tour of this volcano and it was great. It’s a bumpy ride to the trail head but that’s half the fun. Once at the trail head it’s a quick 25 minute walk to the edge of the crater. You may have difficulty...More
