Five hours to go up, four hours to go back down. This was truly an experience. Maybe the time could have been cut by an hour or half, but the other hiker who was with me ain't no outdoors man, lol. This was so great. You literally start from sea level because I was on the leeward side of the island. You have to go down to the beach and you start upwards from there. The rain started falling about 2 hrs up but it was all good. I would recommend however you go there in the dry season. In the caribbean that's between January to June when there is little rain fall cause trust me, when you reach the top the view is amazing. and you don't want to be trekking upwards for hrs only to have your view of the volcano clouded by fog. You DONOT want to go there in the rainy season, cause when rain falls... IT FALLS. And also, if you know if you are not accustomed to the outdoors, please do not go because you can spoil it for others. You do not want to be hiking up there and you want to go back after an hour or two because you can't make it and spoil it for everyone else. And when you reach to the top, you must go into the crater. Trust me, it's worth it. It's about half an hour down on a rope. But when you get there, you won't be disappointed. It is an active volcano. I also had a great guide, his name is Franklin and he is from the hiking centre.
