Good food fir lunch and a nice place to chill in the evening. Did the Lava Challenge. Three super hot chilly shots with a 30 second break in between. Try it if you dare and you win a cool singlet.

Great fun day- hike, volcano board & beach. Oscar the guide was awesome! Get a bandana from the local market for $1 helps you eat less volcanic ash!
