Ninety-nine percent of guests never see the appropriately ominous-sounding Devil’s Throat, a newly formed crater in the middle of the park. Sweetly ask your guide to make a pit stop there—endless “Caution: Do Not Enter” signs let you know you’re on the right path. Local superstition dictates that anyone who steals a piece of lava and brings it home with them will be cursed by Pele (the post office receives hundreds of returned rocks each month from tourists!), so you may want to find your souvenirs elsewhere.
