We walked up here yesterday and the views, although a little hazy, were well worth the climb. It's a bit steep at the beginning but the path is pretty well trodden and I made it up in flip flops! Once at the top, its easier...More

It sounds very adventurous to walk up a mountain but this is not too high for most people to walk up. There is parking at the bottom of the slope and a well defined path to the top. Taking it slow and steady and most...More

What a lovely place to climb and offering amazing views over the Playa Blanca area. I'm most certainly not a climber, and I only had Converse on but I managed to get the crater, which was absolutely stunning. A great thing to do whilst in...More

As volcano walks go, this is probably one of the more accessible ones. On the other hand, don't try it without wearing decent closed-toe shoes or if you have any injuries, since it is still a bit of a slog. If you are not staying...More

Hello. Yes that is the right location. It's a lovely walk. Fairly steep to start but well worth it. Views from the top are breathtaking. We took a picnic. From there the sunsets are amazing too. Hope you enjoyed it.

30 minutes walk to the base then another 20 to the top depending on your fitness but we'll worth the trip as the views are spectacular
