I can't believe that I have stood at the mouth of this incredible volcano. It was like peering down into the centre of the earth. Very humbling experience indeed. We stayed in Costa Rica and took advantage of the opportunity to travel to Nicaragua to...More
We went for an evening tour of the volcano. It's the best time to go, so you can see the red bubbling lava. Also good to go if it has been raining so you are not enveloped in the toxic gases and fumes. When it's...More

It’s an active volcano and for safety reasons everyone should have a vehicle for a quick getaway if needed.
Like I said you could pay a taxi to stay with you.
