    It is volcano that you can see anywhere in Lake Atitlan, and worth the penalty at least once in life to visit him. You can take a Menhaden from panajachel to the town of San Pedro Lagoon (Q25) or you can get from the road passing through san marcos and the other peoples aledannos the Lake. must register one at the entrance to the volcano pay a fee that the truth recommend that they are approx Q50 join in a book and leave a phone number, since you are calling as you go or by any eventuralidad are available at all times the ascent is aproximadanete 3a 4 hours with full equipment and two hours and a half to three only of assault. the view is maganifica until you reach one of its summits with ideal to see the toliman and atitlan iponentes box. moves by several viewpoints and a swing. the only thing is that there are many steps to climb. the what stressful at any time. but highly recommended.
