CLIMB VOLCANO MADARAS
Climb to the crater lake on the top of Volcano Madaras. The trail begins from our backyard. Hiking trails traverse along a transition zone (dry forest to cloud forest) where you can take in the majesty of secondary and mature forest ecosystems at work. The humidity transforms the trail into a muddy, slippery path and sometimes you have to really climb instead of walk. From the top of the Maderas you can descend to the crater lagoon. Flora and Fauna. 1394 meters above sea level.
Guided hikes start at 6 am - 8 am - starting at $16 + per person depending on the group size.
