A nice and challenging tour. 2.5 hours there and 2.5 back in good weather. If it rains, it becomes more strenuous and dangerous, without a guide I would not recommend it to anyone who has never been there and a place is very dangerous in the rain and without climbing equipment, take care! Thanks Didi for the tour and your tips, was a lot of fun!

From Costa Rica !!! Super good experience !!! For people who like the extreme, I recommend them. Likewise, the Guillermo Guide is one of the best in the area. Everything you have that you know about the Gaeva stone tea will teach. Just breathe well and get carried away by the adventure.

The hike offers beautiful views and a few climbs.

The hike is not suitable for everyone. People who do little to no sport and have nothing to do with climbing can quickly reach their limits. Likewise, if you are not free from giddiness. On the way back we had another guide. He had his own pace and didn't care much about the group. So we lay people had to support ourselves one time or another.
