To think that once, the area was just a flat farmers field; then one day a mountain came up from the earth and started spewing lava and ash and continued to do so for ten years, covering everything for miles around. Wow! The volcano trip is a whole day trip, all on horseback. You ride around/through the lava rock/ash field for 2.5 hours. You hike up to the fumidores where steam is still coming out of the rock, then can hike up to the top of the volcano. Our guide told us it was about an hour up, then only ten minutes down (you scurry straight down, hands and feet through the ash) We decided against that. Then you ride half an hour to where just the bell tower is standing above the lava rock, totally amazing to see. Then 2.5 hours back to your car. By this time, I felt like I was made of rubber. The horses were the most boucy horses we've ever experienced. The guide took pity on us toward the end and traded for his horse which felt like riding on a cloud in comparison.
