i thought is was the best view in the area! I did not pay for a guild
i just hopped on a mini van in Granada (I paid 26 cords) a buck!
packed a lunch and saw the sight very inexpensively ( WAY TO GO!!)
You can pAY $20 DOLLARS OR SO for a guild but WHY!
If your really not sure sand at the bus stop and wait for a guided group to show
up and follow them (PIGGIE BACK) MATE!

I had never seen an active volcano and it was on my bucket list. It turns out for good reason. You could feel the energy from this volcano complex. On the day we visited there was a fair amount of smoke spewing from one crater, but without too much sulfur. The views, with just a little hiking, were spectacular, although good treads on your shoes are a must since the volcanic rock is loose. Definitely brink a bandanna to cover your mouth and nose in case the sulfur content on the day you are there is higher.

This is one for the bucket list! Peering into a massive active volcano left us awestruck. My 4 year old (who loves volcanos) had a great educational experience which he enjoyed sharing with his whole preschool class. We went first thing in the morning to avoid a bit of the day time heat. Just took a cab from our hotel and he waited while we hiked around. Wouldn't advise getting dropped off there by cab because you likely would need to hike down the road back to the main road to catch another.

We visited this volcano as part of our Monkey Tours Costa Rica & Nicaragua tour. The time here felt rushed - we did minimal hiking and were able to see both volcanoes at this site, but it would have been nice to have more time here. The active volcano was a fun experience.

I used Erick's tours from Granada and took a sunset tour. It was amazing being up here at sunset and just seeing how the sun looked like it was from another planet through the smoke coming out of the volcano. The views of the surrounding area were also gorgeous and the park ranger was very informative. I recommend this highly.
