At 1394 meters high and located to the south of the island, the Maderas volcano is recognized worldwide for its biosphere and its natural landscapes, in its forests are numerous species, both animal and vegetable.
To ascend it is recommended to leave from Merida if you want to enter by the south side or from the area of Balg, if you want to enter the north face.
The excursion is quieter than in the Concepción volcano and can be done in 4 or 5 hours. While you are in your jungle you are likely to see wild animals such as monkeys, birds, frogs and even some snakes.
At the summit of the volcano is the Laguna Maderas.
The views from there are not as spectacular as from the Concepcion volcano, but the excursion is not wasted due to its encounter with nature.
