This is a hard climb, it is an 11km with 900m of elevation gain with some very steep parts (up then down) but the views on top are totally worth it. The transportation and the food were fine but could have been better for the price paid. The guide was good and the equipment and the equipment as well (they provide hiking sticks and a small backpack with water and snack). I would recommend but bear in mind that you need to know what you're getting into.

Very well organized! We were small group of 6 people and 2 guides, I wasn't as physically prepared as the others. Anyway one of the guides fits a short version of the route for me so with less efforts I managed to climb the volcano, not to the pick but enough to be satisfied with the achievement and experience. Thank you, Rodrigo and Monserat for the professionalism and kind attitude!

Guide Santiago was wonderful. Other reviewers have talked about not going on the weekend due to the park being crowded. We had no choice due to scheduling. Big mistake. Thousands of people there. Due to crowds we could not drive to top parking lot close to crater. Instead we waited in line over an hour to park at lower lot then another hour and a half to crowd into the back of a pickup with 15 other people for a 30 min ride up to the top lot. This made it to where we didn’t have enough time to summit. Made it 500 verticals feet from top but had to turn back. Then waited another hour and a half to board a pickup and head back down. So not go on a weekend! Gave this 5 stars because it was not Santiago’s fault we booked on a weekend. Had it been during the week we would have definitely reached the summit.
