This is a full day adventure for the fit and keen. We went as a couple (which means you can go at your own pace) with Walter from OGU guides. This worked well as we finished 1.5 hours sooner than the other group. This is...More

I improvised and i climbed with a bit of hangover, not having prior breakfast, no food and a few water. It resulted quite hard to descend, needing to make a lot of breaks and delaying the group. Please dont underestimate it as i did

First: everybody who has done a longer hike e.g. In the German Alps can easily do this. There are no cliffs or any other dangerous parts. However you should be aware that the hike is definitely strenous - it's ~1600 height meters and it can...More

I am from Canada and I do a lot of hiking, and this hike in particular was incredible. We did it with Elmer tours in just under 7 hours. The views were incredible and the hike was exhilarating. We departed Moyogalpa at 5am, which I...More

We hired a guide for 30$/2 persons. He only spoke Spanish but he spoke clearly and did not mind repeating things when we did not understand. Having a guide is better to help you find the path, especially at the top and he told us...More

The full day hike to ascend and descend the volcano was a brilliant experience. It's about 16km in length as a return trip, with about 11km of that distance being relatively steep uphill or downhill. The hike needs to be done with a guide... we...More

This was a phenomenal experience but it is very challenging. We got lucky with weather - patches of clouds on the way up and a good view at the top but it would be possible to get a rough deal through either clear skies and...More

I found this extremely difficult - it's at least 4 hours up and nearly the same down - the last hour and a half is almost vertical and I think it's bordering on climbing rather than hiking - there are monkeys birds lizards everywhere ,...More

This is an incredibly scenic hike with an amazing view on top! Even on a cloudy day, this is still a great hike because the terrain constantly changes. We were lucky and got rewarded with a view when we got to the submit. Be mentally...More

We have hiked many a volcano whilst in Central America (pacaya, acetanago etc) and this is definitely the toughest. Although it isn't very tall (at 1600m), hence altitude isn't a factor, the terrain and steepness make it hard! We went up the southern side of...More

It depends! If you are planning on going right to the top, you need proper hiking shoes. The section above the look-out-point is steep, rocky and covered in little ball-like bits of lava that make it hard work. If you only... More
