a lot of visitor complain about the entrance fee - you know in advance that it cost $ 15.00 per person and $ 2.00 for the parking - so not really fair to complaint about it! We had a sunny day and could see the little lake in the crater. For someone interested in a Volcano it is really worth to go

This volcano is currently unavailable for visits as of March of 2018 because of active volcanic activity. But visits to the coffee plantations and La Paz waterfalls are a good alternative.

Don’t go: park is closed because of an eruption in 2017. Local information says it will be open again in 2019... We, stupid tourists, didn’t knew and also guides from other parts of the country weren’t informed about this.

Good visitor center, great view of the crater, and some easy hikes through the cloud forest. Caveats: The park is currently closed because of volcanic activity - check before you go. Also, this is cloud forest, and it is often raining or fogged in to the point you can't see the crater. It tends to be most clear early in the morning. Again, check before you go. Also, dress warmly. Yes, this is the tropics, but unless it's a bright sunny day, you'll need a light jacket, especially if there is any wind or rain or fog.
