  • The Museum offers a series of very interesting information, however, I think that it might be a little more careful, yet it is nice

  • Daytime visit (until 4.30 pm): Museum unlimited time, view of the crater: 5 minutes, lower frequency of visitors. Night visit (from 5.30 to 7.30 pm): not Museum, view of the crater: 15 minutes, batches of a 70 people. (see cost in the photo). We recommend the night visit. Your plan should start to be among around 5.30 and 6 pm at the entry gate. This is because the flow of people for this visit begins to form at 5 pm, and are distributing them in shifts to 70 people. Thus, to make the observation of lava night, should be enter into the second or third shift. You can go by taxi or private vehicle. The Park offers transport cost (C$ 100), or you can go and try to join a convoy or vehicle up. Please see first, and as people are returning, take photos. 15 minutes are long enough for a good shot.

  • It is an educational Museum, teaches basic history. Provides information of the place, the flora and fauna and how they lugrado preserve the place. Currently it is the attraction of the place that you can see lava from the crater of the volcano. At night it is a procession of cars lining up to see the attraction

  • We've visited this place and paid $20 transport and guide included. A way to much I found. But the entry price for the park at night seems to be $10. So $10 for guide and transport. The view depends the moment you visit. The time we went, the vulcano was quite calm.
  • The volcano park is absolutely amazing, and one of the only places you'll actually be able to look down inside a volcano and see lava! You'll almost feel like you're in the Lord of the Rings by how close you get to the lava! There's also a lot of history here with the cross on the hill and the lava flows that you can see on your way up to the crater.
  • Amazing view if you get the right conditions to see the lava. Just don't get too close if you're afraid of heights or not overly barriered observing areas!
  • holy crap was that awesome! go look in a volcano. WORTH IT
  • Because of the open volcano it is great to visit right now but expect long queue on the road befor you can enter. It cost 10 dollars per person and your only allowed 15m to look at the volcano.
