The tour starts right before sunset, hike up to the cross (La Cruz de Bobadilla) overlooking the volcano and the surroundings. Watch the Chocoyos (green parakeets) returning to their homes in the Santiago crater walls; somehow they adapted to the sulfur smoke from the volcano. We will visit a few caves which was formed by lava streams and observe the interesting rock formations, learn about History and Geology. Observe a large number of bats depart massively from their caves, another great natural spectacleThe tour ends with a visit to a viewpoint that provides the possibility to actually look inside the crater mouth of the volcano, observing the red, glowing lava.
