About this activity
This hike gives you the opportunity to see the beautiful Guatemalan landscape, and the eruptions of one of the most dangerous volcanos in the world, while not being overly strenuous. You will have the chance to see different types of plants and flowers. The first part of the hike is a bit steep, with some rocks as obstacles, but when looking over your shoulder, you can see breath-taking views of Quetzaltenango in the early morning.

Halfway, the road becomes more flat and easy, which gives you the opportunity to take some beautiful pictures of the landscape. You can see Santa Maria in front of you; this view gives you the feeling of being overwhelmed by the sheer size of the mountain. When walking further, you can see some of the different mountains Guatemala has, and there is the possibility that you will pass locals with horses who are going to the city.

Once you reach the view point, there is a chance that you will need to wait for a few minutes to see a eruption, but it's worth the wait. Every eruption of the volcano is different and one is more spectacular than the next. Your guide has a lot of knowledge about the country and can tell you a lot about the area.
