2.) Hike the Glassy

This is a hike that will take about two to three days to be finished. During this hike, you will be going through farmland then you will pass through a deep jungle before you reach the coast and the cliffs. The hike only ends when you reach the point where the old volcanic flow meets the ocean, and here, you have to take care because there are big waves that are known to sweep people away and smash them against the rocks.
