  • Interesting to walk through the tube of lava. The whole thing isn't big, so it's easy to walk in for children or adults. The guided tour was really interesting, the people know their stuff. It is basically a cave, formed by lava, so that's very cool to actually visit.
  • So cool....a must see. BE CAREFUL GO SLOW....I knocked my head really hard, and broke my glasses....so GO SLOW and be mindful. The area around and in this hike is beautiful, and kept very clean and nice. This is a surprising small hike, with beautiful huge tropical plants.... absolutely do not miss!
