We did everything right, stayed at a nearby hotel, woke up early and went at the park at 8am. But the cloud cover prevented us from seeing the crater. We stayed there for half a day but no luck. Make sure to check the Webcam before you go (Google poas volcano camera). No need for a guide. Good luck. It gets crowded so be there super early.

Needed my Polartec jacket here. Wonderful scenery, very photogenic.
Loved it! Visited the coffee plantation first and the waterfall afterwards.

I went to the Volcano at the end of module I, of my MBA. I went with 2 friends, it was not a real good experience, because when we got to the top, it was to windy/cloudy and you could not see the view.

we were so lucky it was very clear the day we went had beautiful views of poas volcano. Trail is about 1/3 mile on a paved road steep incline and very high elevation, not for folks with any breathing difficulties. Strong sulfur smell emitted from volcano.Enjoyed the scenic views
