  • Climbing the Quill is definitely a must. This inactive volcano hides a great rainforest atmosphere inside. A great view, but a definite work out. Make sure to wear good shoes!  more »
  • Great hike from the foot of the volcano's crater in a well maintained and signposted route. The part is the crater in style, but where necessary, hang ropes in support. Once in the crater, nature is overwhelming and you imagine yourself in the tropical rain forest: butterflies, snakes, hermit crab, goats and chickens, birds, you get it all!

  • I only walked halfway up, as the crater was closed at the time of my visit, but it was wonderful. I never did see that bridled quail dove I was hoping for, but it is just another reason to come back.  more »
