  • It was neat to see real lava flowing! Downside is it's obviously touristy and can be a long wait just to spend 10 minutes seeing the lava. Worth a trip if it interests you and you have time to do it though!
  • Cool to see an active volcano. It's a little tough to actually see it, but definitely go at night if you go. That's probably the only time you can see any of the red glow from the lava.
  • Went for the night tour, it doesn't last long, but long enough to see everything and to take some pics. We'll worth the visit, it was fantastic to see right down into the volcano and to witness the lava and the sulphur billowing up. It's 300 cordobas/$10 (US) per person to get in, if you have your own vehicle you can go up in that, if not you can take a taxi for 100 cordobas/$3 (US) per person.
  • Great to be able to drive right to the mouth of an active volcano and watch the orange lava bubbling. You can lean over the edge of the railing and smell the brimstone, though it can leave you choking. Check the volcanic debris on the drive in. Be aware that the site warden may limit your stays - they have to, as the volcano occasionally erupts and they need to evacuate.
  • Song the capability was awesome. It's a short amount of time you can spend so take pictures quickly.
