I understand there are two routes up Cerro Chato- we took the one closest to the waterfall, that had steps sort of built in with logs. Very challenging hike, very steep- hope you've been on the stairmaster lately! But, it was also gorgeous. We went on an overcast drizzly day and passed only two other couples hiking. The vegetation in the jungle as we hiked up was breathtaking. It was pretty strenuous and as we finally reached the top and a sign that said we had reached the lagoon, we found we had to hike down (over the edge of the crater) a good, challenging way to finally arrive. On this particular day, it was very overcast and we couldn't make out the other side of the crater and the water was freezing. I imagine on a nice day, it would be really beautiful to reach the top and jump in the sunny lagoon and maybe even swim across. Our arrival at the lagoon was a bit of a let down, but still a challenging, fun hike. $10 fee pp
