We hiked all the way up , able to watch a lava river coming out of the dry stones, so hot , so amazing and unique experience. It doesn't happen all the time but the adventure of walking to view from the top of the volcano....Priceless! Enjoy it!

Amazing hike up and one of our highlights in Guatemala. Seeing the lava up close was a rare treat and worth the effort.
Good hike in the park (Q50pp). Great local (official) guide (Q250). Cool trip!
Don't buy the walking sticks there just rentals. Only the rich smoke cigerettes
