We enjoyed the hike and the views. Had fun roasting marshmallows on the steam heat. Our guide brought a nice lunch that we enjoyed on top. The hike is a bit strenuous, but very do-able if you are slightly in shape. Horses are available for...More
Great hike! You cannot do it if you are not in shape! You end up renting a horse midway and climb up and down on the back of the horse. The views are spectacular if the sky is clear. We were able to roast marshmallow...More
A group of 15 of us decided to climb the volcano. What an amazing experience it was. My 22 and 12 yr old both climbed by foot, I on the other hand decided it was a bit much and had the option to go up...More
We loved the view from the top but be forewarned: this is not an easy hike. It's steep and long.
We went with Elizabeth Bell's guide and it included a ride to/from our hotel in Antigua. It also includes lunch with was awful; try not...More
***VERY IMPORTANT, PAY A TOURIST GUIDE IN THE PARKING, THAT WILL GO WITH YOU, BY YOUR SIDE AND WILL SHOW YOU THE VOLCANO. IT COULD BE DANGEROUS IF YOU DECIDE TO GO BY YOURSELF. PLEASE NEVER DO THAT. While walking, there are local people who...More
Awesome! You can hike or horse ride to the top, then a comfortable walk. A moderate level of fitness required. I went when the lava was flowing fast. A must see if in the Antigua area. Close by and inexpensive. No need for guides. Just...More
Recently visited early morning which was good as the clouds covered the top of the mountains as we were coming back up from the hot lava spots.
The trek is for moderately to fit people but horses or local taxis as they are called are...More
A tiny volcano with almost guaranteed activity. I went there with a group. This was the first volcano we climbed, not knowing what to expect. The climb is easy, with a nice succession of landscapes, culminating with parched volcanic environment at the top. You will...More
First thing to be aware of is that the drive there and back to Antigua is approximately 1.5 hours each way and the hike is only 2 hours long (give or take).
The guide we were allocated didn't speak any English, not that this mattered,...More
It's hard but you can do it. It will cost around $12-$20 considered there is a bus that takes you to the skirts of the volcano. it is so worthy, however, it is hot and at some points a little steep but I saw some people... More
It's hard but you can do it. It will cost around $12-$20 considered there is a bus that takes you to the skirts of the volcano. it is so worthy, however, it is hot and at some points a little steep but I saw some people (elder and not so) doing it, in perfect outcome.
I would say don't pack hiking shoes just for this. Sneakers are fine if you are in decent shape and don't have ankle issues. Hiking boots would be better, but only if you have the space in your luggage.
