It is a short and manageable climb on a reasonably decent path to viewing points overlooking the crater and cone.

Very close and accesible site from the city, a 20-30min drive, not sure about public transportation but getting there is not hard! Road to the site has plenty of restaurants and cafes to program yourself on visiting one after leaving the park. Once there you...More

I visited this place 3 days ago and still keep thinking about it. So nice and calming. We didn’t expect all the stairs, we thought it was going to be a simple hike like most of the local volcanos but it still wasn’t bad at...More

The volcano is a sight to see. Incredible views and history. Locals are very nice and offer some of the freshest fruit I’ve ever had. Definitely recommend booking a tour with Papagayo Adventures and they will provide you an awesome experience.

Nice shady walk up to the top. You can't go down into the volcano but you do get a good view of the crater. The walk is well maintained but it is a good way up if you have physical challenges.

Upon arrival at the airport we headed straight to Plaza Volcan for pupusas and coffee followed by a stop to El Boqueron for a short walk and view points. Highly recommended if its on the way or en route to another location .

For what you'd pay for a cab you might as well do a tour that will pay close you up at your hotel and explain what you're seeing on the way. I highly recommend Nahuat tours
