  • Most amazing place where you discover that flames limits there, there are 2 paths known but choose it must do so with a certified guide, remember always to collect trash you carry, eye with kilograms more in your suitcase, enjoy the walk and care at the top by touching the stones they are frozen and can give you cramps in the hands , at the top with good climate can admire the cordillera central, the sea Caribbean and the Ocean Pacific
