One of the best hikes in Guatemala brings us to the highest point in Central America where we have a beautiful view over every volcano in Guatemala. At sunrise you will see the chain of volcanoes along the Pacific coast of Guatemala, as well as the Pacific Ocean and Mexico. The walk takes 2 days in total: the first day we pick you up at 6:00h from your hotel / hostel and take you to our office to distribute food and equipment among hikers. After this we travel by public transport to San Marcos, and another bus to our starting point of the hike which lies at 2900m. The first part of the hike takes about 2 1⁄2 hours, up to 4000m, where we set up camp on a flat surface. We will then climb to the summit, which lies at 4220 m, and takes about an hour to complete. The next morning we climb back to the top to enjoy the view and the sunrise before descending again and returning to Xela.

Departure: Day 1 - 8:00h, back at: Day 2 +/- 14:00h
