The journey begins in Antigua at La Soledad village where the trek begins at Acatenango volcano. It is one of the most beautiful activities you have to do when visiting Guatemala, of course you have to have the proper physical condition to do so.
Volcano Acatenango is the sleeping giant that is the twin one of the most active volcano in Guatemala.
Acatenango is the third highest volcano in all of Central America and is a real adventure to hike on the top and observe the sunset and the sunrise. Sleeping overnight in the base camp of the volcano will be an unique experience in your life. Its highest summit is 3,976 meters (13,044 ft!)
