Amazing place to see. I went on an organised trip at £20 euros, the drive through the park is amazing and there are a lot of photo opportunities to capture the strange scenery. There are three experiments to see at the start of the tour and these are quite amazing as is the barbecue area.( I won't spoil the surprise!)... More

It's a bit like what you image it would be like if you landed on mars. Interesting and worthwhile visit. You can also have a nice meal at the restaurant at the top with magnificent views over the park. The grilled food is cooked over a huge pit with heat coming up from the ground.

If the weather is below par this place is worth a visit - 9 Euros a head and bus takes you round the volcanic mountains. Not for a hot sunny day, it's not s sight you'll see very often in your lifetime so worth the entry fee! And you can hold some hot ash!

The only way for tourists to enjoy this landscape is by sitting on a coach. For those of you who find the idea of getting on a coach at the best of times nauseating, you will likely share my utter disappointment. I would also add that the whole experience feels very much like a money making racket, how much can... More

Booked a day trip to the national park while staying in Playa Blanca. Without a doubt the best day of the holiday. I have been twice now and I was still amazed by the views.

We rented a car and drove the short journey from PDC to the national park. Entry fee was €9 per person and the queue of cars snaking from the main road up to the car park took about 40 minutes to negotiate. Buses and taxis appeared to be allowed to bypass the queue. I was glad we were taking this... More

Visited here twice in the last week, for €9 you get access to the park and a 30minute guided coach tour - longest we had to wait was about 5 minutes for a coach as they are regular. Ate in the restaurant after and found the food very nice and reasonably priced for the location. Worth a visit

There is one road in and out of the main attraction - Montanas del Fuego - which causes chunky tail-backs (30 minute queue in our case) and when you get in once you have been amazed by the heat vents and steam geysers that's about it. Apart from the stunning views whilst you sip half-decent coffee in the bar-cafe. Worth... More
