  • Very informative about the islands volcano. Friendly staff. Very good view of the southern part of the island.
  • Nearly died to an eruption, close this place down it is TOO dangerous for anyone to go to. Why would you travel to this place, it is a death wish. I have asthma and the ash clouds did not help. Also the toilets weren't cleaned. I hate geography so one star for me. 😊😊😊❤️❤️❤️
