Attraction details
Reviewed 15 January 2012

We combined this trip with a visit to La Palma. The road trip was attractive and the views stunning at the top. We camped near a little cabin out of the wind (the main areas is a bit of a wind tunnel) and away from the main camping site. There is a main camping site in between lodges and another one a little higher up - with apparently better views. Unfortunately the main campsite seemed to be the destination for groups of locals who wanted to drink, then camp for the weekend... we were glad to be away from it all. Nevertheless - good enough facilities - drop toilets (with no real seat). The walk up to the peak is only 15 minutes if that - a little disappointing really as there is a lot of tree growth blocking your view. A small walk down to this apparent 'metro-rite' was about 15 minutes too - the walk across the log over a 12m drop is worth it for the view across Guatemala and El Salvador. No trees blocking your view here! some good bolted climbing routes too! i liked the location purely for the view it had to offer.
