Large part of park was closed. Enjoyed going to the px. Even though park was mostly closed don’t miss out on the drive to the ocean that was open. Very cool. Skip the steam vents though.

the park was only partly opened, and at least gave us a spooky taste of this unique region, although it was disappointing not to see any lava.

Took the day off and went here and saw giant sinkholes that are incredible and surreal. Go here and get amazed.

No there are no boats as of now. The security agencies have banned the Lava viewing. As the situation is dangerous. It will open up once the eruptions are in control.
