Day 1 - we meet at Antigua, and from there we drive our way to the village at the slopes of the volcano, we hike half of the volcano and set our campsite.

Day 2 - we start hiking as early as possible to reach the summit and then descend to the village, probably before lunch so we can eat something.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

End location: After descending from the volcano we'll take you back to you hotel at Antigua.

A Recent Review of this tour

One of the best experiences of my life! Nestor was a fantastic guide. He was early, punctuality is great. I should have brought hiking shoes before doing another tour like this. He was patient with me as we descended the volcano when I had to empty dirt from my shoes. He was very knowledegable about the history of Guatemala which enriched the experience for me. I would highly recommend this tour and Nestor as a guide. Advice about the site would be a list of needed items. If there, it was unclear.
