We took a shuttle to the park where you have to pay a national park fee and a park entrance fee. We went through the Las Pailas trails and to the La Cangreja waterfall and total it was an 8 hour hike.

We couldn't hike the trail to the volcano, it was too active. The other trail was worth it. The trail we hiked were wide and easy to traverse. We saw bubbling mud pots and fumeroles before heading into the rainforest.
