  • In 3.5 hours time we walked to the top of this volcano. We found it very spicy because it non stop goes up. Take enough to drink with it (+-2 litres). On top of the mountain was the view over sheets atitlan really fantastic. This was the heavy trip up worth at all! Only comment is that you don't have the feeling that you're a volcano climbs just a regular steep mountain. The tour is through the forest, coffee plants and corn fields.
