We eventually got around to walking up this mountain around a year after we'd moved to Playa Blanca. The volcano itself is dramatic - especially at the sun sets. But the surprise for us came when we reached the top. As you look down into...More

Montana Roja is a popular attraction for many people visiting PlayaBlanca. This is a very accessible Volcano that offers wonderful views, a great walking experience & a rapid sun tanning opportunity. Access is free. Bring drinking water.

1 mile walk up volcano for great views - a bit slippery under foot so def wear trainers. quite windy at the top so sweatshirt/waterproof a good idea.
