We left at 7am to get to this place in time for sunrise. Not the easiest to find but google directions and that'll get you there. I'd say you need to be reasonably fit to climb this, took us about 10 minutes from Bottom to...More

We came to Playa Blanca by bus, it is quite a long walk from the bus stop, but it is worth the views from the volcano. The wind was getting stronger on the way up and one has to take care on the top not...More

To answer your question, if you are fit enough to walk to the top, the walk to the start is definitely within walking distance. The signage is not too brilliant but, in fact, it does become fairly obvious which path to... More
