  • undoubtedly a volcano that requires mental and physical effort, but to reach the top comforts you knowing that did it, in the part more high-central america at 4,220 meters above sea level... arriving at the place there is a sign where gives you the starting point, ideally hire a guide so that you go guide on trails and don't miss... Please take computer since it is too cold and tends to rain for the evenings. climb to the crater to see the Sunrise is amazing..!

  • Long walk BUT very worth it. I believe it's about a 4 hour hike to the top. Lake Atitlan is so beautiful. One of my favorite places.  more »
  • Difficult hike, but totaly worth it. Aclimatization is really important. I recommend the Villa Real hostel, which is great starting point
  • Awesome mountain / volcano, we caught it partically cold!
  • The highest point of Guatemala and Central America at 4240 meters over the sea level! the Tajumulco volcano is an easy-medium hike of 5 hours to the camping zone and then 50 minutes to the summit. Highly recommended hike!!!
  • Incredible views from the summit makes the high altitude hike worth the effort. Hiked up at midday and the views from the summit above the clouds were awesome. Glad we did not do sunrise hike as it would have been incredibly cold (-10-20c) and windy.
  • beautiful view , superb camping
