Owner description: The last eruption from this dormant volcano was 10,000 years ago.

Before starting the walk up the Madera Volcano there is a stop at "Finca Magdalena" which is an old coffee "finca" that serves as a restaurant and guest house as well. Its the gathering point for all the backpackers that wish to have an adventure rush. You first have to pay a fee for walking to the Volcano (I consider it a very cheap price). You can choose wether to take the walk around the coffee plantations, the hieroglyphics's walk, or the "volcano climbing" walk. In all three you will find beautiful and very well conservated hieroglyphics, but of course, you will find more on the hieroglyphics's walk. Its an experience I will never forget, since I did all three walks, but the most challenging one was reaching the top of the volcano, that has a humid tropical forest vegetation (use jeans, comfortable boots and alredy dirty t-shirts). It is a 4 hour climbing, if you are a slow walker(of course, watching the flora and fauna) and 2 1/2 descending; and 2 1/2 hours if you are in fast pace for the top, and 1:45 min descending. I personally did the quicker timing. At the top you can do a 90-feet rope descending to the crater's lagoon. Its an incredible experience, I have lots to talk about, you can write to me if you wish more details. It is a pleasure to share information about beautiful spots.
