  • It is essential to take a detour to see this wonder of nature, dormant volcano, lagoon bottomless! Beautiful from the place that look at it is, infinite, with nothing more, going in winter over birds noise was all for us, impressive, colors, shapes, volcanic rocks... is that people spend and is leaving their posts made of stone to shore, you may like or not but the truth is that the place that makes the difference even is so imposing that read opinions that annoyed... by the way We will not go down, so we don't let our message haha! It is to take 10 min, stop along the route and breathe fresh air and be only one and the nature. Divine country we have, have to go out and meet him!

  • The curiosity of being an extinct volcano in the middle of the plain. Its crater now occupied by a lake but still are traces of its volcanic activity, especially in a lava field which is located a few metres from the access to the crater. Good photos.

  • It is impressive as in the middle of a plain may suddenly appear a depression which turns out to be a crater of a volcano and possessing a lagoon in its Center. Blue Lagoon or lagoon green, as it hit the light of day; Imagine a particular landscape where we (if we close our eyes and try to listen only to nature) and try to feel it will have been the place millions of years ago. Stones and volcanic sediment us around and a gorgeous and strange landscape of caves, ledges and volcanic cones. To enjoy it should abstract from desubicadas people who may be visiting the place with loud music and try that will not ruin us vision of the wonderful place because of the people who had the idea of writing his name or something stupid (to who cares and who know them) with the stones of the place at the base of the volcano close to the lagoon. Luckily, you can collaborate and disarm the names so that the landscape is natural and not touched by man.
