Traveler Comments

The tour guide, Diego, who met us in San Pedro was wonderful.

- CARLA Z, FEB 2015

I think I physically taxed myself more than anything I have ever done. That said (I am 66), I did appreciate the experience, and the scenery was awesome. Did not make it to the top, but did get within 45 minutThes of the summit. There was no misrepresentation, and I am really glad we made the effort.
