We got there at 6am, to avoid the heat. Did the walk with a guide, which I can recommend. With just a normal condition it's not that hard. The walk and vulcano are both really beautiful and impressive.

I climbed alone after receiving some advice from the hotel reception, better if you start in morning, in afternoon it's raining almost everyday, you need shoes or boots with good grip. I make 3 hours from catholic church to the crater

Amazing hike, well worth doing, here are a few tips about the hike WITHOUT a guide (definitely feasible). Leave early (we started at 6.30), weather is better and not too hot yet. We walked from Mountain View Hostel, it took us just over an hour...More
