Itinerary

Day 01

We travel to Xela (Quetzaltenango City), on arrival we eat lunch and purchase any supplies needed for the hike and the camping night we'll spend at the lagoon.

By early afternoon we arrive to the town of San Martín Sacatepéquez and we start our hike, which will take around an average 2-3 hours to the shore of the lagoon.

We set up our camp site and enjoy the surroundings, a walk around the lagoon is suggested, this place is totally peaceful and beautiful.

We cook and eat dinner, and then we relax and enjoy a good night of sleep.

Day 02

We don't have to wake up too early, but this schedule is flexible as you need it.

We cook and eat breakfast and prepare to hike to the volcano's watchpoint and enjoy the awesome views of the surrounding landscape.

We hike back to the town of San Martín Sacatepéquez and drive to Quetzaltenango, where we stop to eat lunch before returning to Antigua or Guatemala city.
