  • The Volcán de Ipala is a forced journey if we like nature, camping, the beautiful scenery, especially the rarity of having a Lake within the crater at the top.

  • From the city of Guatemala is retired, a couple of hours. A very good ride for camping or just simply go up and down the same day. A volcano that rises, does not require much physical demand. The best is the Lake in its crater, clean water and very cool weather, morning dawn cloudy and suddenly be discipan clouds, for after nothing clouding again. It has trails to walk and take pictures.
