4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
Hike through the high-altitude volcanic region to Laguna Chicabal. After a relatively short trek through the cloud forest hills, you'll come a lagoon (sacred to the local indigenous cultures), which lies in the crater of the now-extinct Chicabal volcano. Bring study footwear and a camera, and also consider leaving early: clouds tend to form over the lake, giving it an eerie look, but diminishing the sweeping views from the top of the crater.

  • Beautiful place that worth a visit. The subidita is a little heavy, so that there is not to forget to bring water and forecasts because crater there is it. Much worth to the lagoon. Every second a different landscape can be admired. Beautiful place!

  • I was in this beautiful place with family and friends and it's a place that any tourist should miss to walk completely or you can pay a small transport that takes you to where they begin the steps to ascend to the lagoon which if I am not wrong are as 585 stands vajar and then upload and if required effort on his return and the next day they imagine as you feel your legs? But is a ride that is worth the penalty it recommend to all the people that love the nature.
