Head for the telecoms tower for the start. Can be done in trainers. If you want decent photos of Playa Blanca leave it as late as possible in the day as the direction is due south.

Very nice place and crater but unfortunate with all the names etc being created in the crater. You can walk around the whole crater which is very nice.

Well worth the climb, can be a bit windy on top. Views include Papagayo peninsular, El Golfo and the whole of Play Blanca.

Its a 45 min hike well worthwhile. Not to steep and quite easy. Great views. Remember to bring something to drink.

Hello. Yes that is the right location. It's a lovely walk. Fairly steep to start but well worth it. Views from the top are breathtaking. We took a picnic. From there the sunsets are amazing too. Hope you enjoyed it.

30 minutes walk to the base then another 20 to the top depending on your fitness but we'll worth the trip as the views are spectacular
