The walk through the rain forest was smooth and rocky -- i was unable to climb the stairs to the base of the volcano due to the various positions of the stairs but i was able to walk the 2.3 Kilometers to the stairs with my cane, slowly, but doable.
One of the highlights of our trip. Guide was amazingly smart, knowledgeable and accommodating. Learned a lot of facts. The hot springs were as heavenly as can be!!
Our guide Andres, at the volcano tour, very knowledgeable and friendly.. the hot springs were a perfect compliment to the volcano trip..The food and drinks at dinner, were outstanding.
