Tips for Families

We used OX Outfitters out of Antigua and had a private guide. We were really happy with them. They arranged the whole trip, transportation, guide and lunch on the volcano. Wear closed toe shoes. My daughter wore Keen's and the tiny volcano rocks kept getting in them so we would have to stop to empty them. Bring bicycling gloves for the kids, the ones with open fingers. The volcanic rock is like glass and you can easily gash yourself on it. This gave the kids some hand protection so they could grab on to the rock and steady themselves. Be sure to use the bathrooms in the little town before you start your climb, as there are no more on the trail.
