The Museum is very limited in artifacts and things to see the best part of the visit are the views of the Volcano. I think that there are more opportunities to trek or bike trail on paths around the volcano.

The weather was really good when I went here. I got to see the cone-shaped volcano. The people were really helpful with taking photos. It has lots of souvenir shops and you get a lot of discount when you buy a lot.

That was my question, though, once that I engaged a guide, I loved the outcome. I paid him 100 peso and he used my camera and took some amazing shots! Glad we stopped at the museum!

Finally got to see this ruin...real cool but very busy during the holidays. I feel sad that some really just climbed up on the tower when a lot of tour guides were telling them not to do it. Aside from possible accidents, they are also...More
