  • My main goal here is to see this amazing first ever close up experience with a volcano. Still looking pretty today
  • Fell in lava, too hot, don't like the taste of lava then don't go, simple as that. Yet I liked falling out the helicopter.
  • Riding a helicopter over the volcano was such a beautiful scenery as I got an aerial view of the volcano and the sight that looked like ash running down the sides. Although I am bit scared of heights I ENJOYED IT!
  • Hiking up a volcano that is covered in ash really made me feel welcomed in Monserrat.
  • Good place to do geology
