We went as part of a tour group (SharkSky out of San Cristobal Island) and it was definitely a long day. The trail is very long (about 5-6 hours to complete) but not difficult. The only "tough" part is the beginning where you walk up to the actual crater for about 20-30 minutes uphill. The crater is huge and amazing to see. Then you walk around the edge of the crater (trail was pretty overgrown, but pretty flat) which is honestly kind of long and a bit boring but then you hit the Chico volcano area where you actually walk on the lava formations.
Wear good boots or shoes and wear lots of sunscreen and reapply often. It was very hot when we did it and we all got burnt even with the sunscreen. Also make sure to bring a snack and lots of water.
