The tour guide, drivers, and other staff were very friendly and courteous. Great service, that which is rarely seen in Colombia. Everything was fantastic, exceeded expectations. Not to mention the great scenery and the hike itself.
This is a nice daytrip if you want to see vulcanic landscapes. Get a good nights sleep because they will pick you up very early in the morning and if you smoke don´t worry it´s not a hike it´s a trip in a car so ignore all the reviews saying you should buy altitude sickness pill to survive just aclimatise... 更多
A very nice trek. We were so lucky that the volcano was active the day we visited. The altitude at the destination point is around 5000m, so unless you're used to heights, you will feel an effect. In addition you will lose your breath quite easily, so walk in your own tempo and don't be stressed by a guide in... 更多
We just parked up by the entrance to the reserve and took a short walk to the met station. Picked up a 3 lifers on that walk including the Buffy Helmetcrest

Experience the wonder of an active volcano. Nevado del Ruiz actually had a small eruption while I was at the base, how cool is that! Take the local bus to the highest allows point and walk on the snow capped peak.
It's a unique view of a paramo! There was no snow when I went, because of the climate changes, but it was a worth tour. You will see nothing more than sand around you!!! Take a "agua panela con té de coca"!!!! Terrific!
I took a bus tour from Manizales. The views along the way were impressive. At Laguna Negra we could even see some snow on the peaks. The higher you drive, the colder it gets - dress accordingly!!. At the visitor centre you can already feel the coldness. There was a warning about volcanic activity but it was possible to drive... 更多
