Within a one and half hour drive, we arrive at the base of this active volcano. Along the way we make various stops for photo opportunities. We will travel through some charming villages and past cattle farms before arriving at the starting point of our hike. In this natural hike, we start in an open savannah-type area, and then come upon a number of steamy sulfur water ponds, bubbling mud, and fumaroles all related to the volcanic activity below. After admiring this natural process, we begin to ascend into the tropical rain forest - crossing creeks and getting deeper into the dense and lush vegetation.
Our guide will point out many details of the forest such as Tiger Ants, Fire Ants, Strangler Fig Trees, monkeys, iguanas, agoutis, coatis, as well as sharing many other forest facts.
