We did a segment of the W one day. Beautiful and iconic, but so very packed with foreigners and amenities. We also did a day hike elsewhere in the park and had a much more positive time with killer views. Consider going off the beaten...More

Three of us hiked the W, staying in refugios along the way (We are over 60, and kinda done with full-on back packing :)). The refugios exceeded our expectations, providing clean, decent accommodations and food. It isn’t the least expensive way to go, but lightens...More
