I had never been to an active volcano before and this was a treat. It's pretty inexpensive to get into the park. The museum inside was worth seeing as is the scenic view inside that museum overlooking a crater lake and lava rocks. But it's...More

You can visit the volcano during the day for I believe $5.00 per person, or at night, 5:30p-7:30p for $10.00 each. The evening is when I went with a group, and people are lined up before 5:15p to gain entrance, as they limit the number...More

The volcano is pretty impressive, but unless you have a lot of time or are traveling in the off season I don’t think it’s worth the time/money. We took one of the many tours from Granada they ushered us all into a van then we...More

Stopped here on a tour and it was amazing to be looking into a smoking crater! The national park drive up to the volcano has the remnants of two historic eruptions and we stopped for photos on the way down.

You need a car or to pay a taxi and have them stay with you. It’s way too far to walk although I suppose you could from the entrance to the museum. From the museum they take a certain number of people up to the volcano at... More

We arrived at about 1 in the afternoon and yes, we self drove which I recommend OR if you take a taxi keep them there with you-as you really cannot walk from the museum to volcano- I don’t even think they would let you.
