Guided by Rocio Alkedoa with Columbus Luxury. She took us to the top in just over 3 hours and back down in about 45. The ‘curse’ portion of the last 200 m is the real deal. Unfortunately, we had clouds roll in just before submitting, maybe get there again to see fuego. Found a vent atop acantenango to warm our fingers back to feeling before the descent as there was a old front moving in above 13k

The best hike I’ve done in my life. Worth every step. Take your time, don’t rush it. Dealing with altitude is no joke. Watch the sunrise is a must.

I would 100% recommend this hike to everyone who goes to Guatemala. It is a once in a lifetime experience. The two best companies to go through in my opinion, would be Tropicana or Wicho and Charlie’s Tours. I personally went through Tropicana and they provided meals, clothes you could rent, blankets/sleeping bags, and my group slept in a cabin rather than typical tents. I’ve had friends go through Wicho & Charlie’s, and it sounded amazing as well and I plan to go through them next trip. It’s a difficult hike but there’s many stops before making it to base camp and you do not have to go to the summit if it’s too much, but why hike a volcano if you’re not willing to get to the top?! Best experience of my travels in Central America. You’ll regret it if you don’t go! ❤️

My favorite hike! Our group went with a guide (Jaime from Balam Tours) and he was great. Began ascent at 10:30 am, first hr and last 45 min to summit most challenging. guide made us stop every 30 mins to help with altitude sickness (thankfully didn’t affect me). There are a few rest stops with beverages/snacks for sale, had our lunch there (tour company provided it). Arrived at basecamp around 3 pm (all set up with tents, cots, sleeping bags, etc) with direct view of Mt Fuego, watched it erupt all night while sitting around a campfire having dinner/eating s’mores :) Woke at 3:45 am hiked steep 45 min climb with headlamp to summit in dark to watch the sunrise and views of Fuego erupting. Wow!!! Technical Switchbacks Steep inclines Varied terrain Recommend: -one pole -proper hiking boots- I wore trail running shoes which got the job done but not ideal -4 L water -Headlamp -Wear layers - warm clothes for summit (below freezing temps), gloves -rain jacket -Snacks

Went without guide with 3am start. Fastest road from Antigua to La Soledad is a unpaved road, 4x4 was helpful although probably can be done with a sedan car. Took the west trail. With the All Trails map, navigation was very easy. The first hour is pretty strenuous and the trail has some loose gravel which makes it slippery at times (specifically going downhill). The forest part is steep but ok. Going to the summit it gets strenuous again and would require some rock stepping. The western trail has some amazing views of Fuego. Overall great hike! For the decent hiking boots and a hiking pole would make it a lot easier.

Absolutely stunning trail, but definitely the most difficult trail I’ve done. Was told it was an easy overnight trip and it was very challenging in the end. It’s steep uphill with much of the hike through volcanic sand that you slide down in for every step. Poles helped with this. Gorgeous views at the summit and a view of an active volcano are hard to beat though. Very glad I went, even saw a couple small eruptions of fire from Fuego. Pack light, with warm clothes for the summit- it’s freezing up there. And pack lots of water. Rent the walking sticks they offer- it’s worth it for the sandy parts- which is about 40% of the trail.

Fucking grueling but worth it. Hike at night and catch the sunrise.

One of the Best track you will ever do.

This was an incredibly difficult hike. You must be in great physical condition and know that altitude sickness is real. This is a must do for visiting Guatemala, but I will never do this again as the down hill part is so incredibly slippery, it takes away from the experience, hence the 4 star rating. The views at night of the volcan fuego errupting were worth it. It is an experience one will never forget.

The view at the top is phenomenal. We got to see Fuego spouting often!! Excruciatingly intense hike tho, not for the faint of heart. Literally.

Extremely hard but was a hiking trip of a lifetime. This hike is so intense that words really can’t describe it. We went with Tropicana Tours and the guides were local Guatemalan guys. They were great in every respect. The hike began at 8,000 ft and camped at 12,000 ft. We took breaks about every 30 min or so give or take. At 4:30am the following day, we hiked to the summit, an additional 1,000 ft gain to watch the sunrise. If going, don’t underestimate how cold it is up there. We were well prepared and stayed warm. The volcano was very active and we saw the show of a lifetime. Fuego blew about every 15-20 minutes. The hike up took 5+ hours with breaks, an hour up to the summit the next am and then three hours out. Advance incline training helped us a lot. Totally a 5-star hike.

Incredibly challenging and very slippery. Hiking poles or walking stick make it manageable

One of most beautiful views

I went up Acatenango in a guided group on a different path than indicated on the map. My guide said they use the one on the map sometimes when they do overnight hikes. Our path was 12 miles round trip. Beautiful, but brutally steep. My guide told me they call the last scree portion something similar to “b*tch trail” and it’s pretty accurate. Views are incredible, got to see Fuego spout a little from the top! It was pretty windy and cold in the forested section so wear layers and a wind breaker.

Strenuous hike, best to wear hiking boots and bring at least 4L of water and extra snacks. Usually damp/rainy and cold so bring extra layers of clothing.

Beautiful views, but a difficult hike! 1,000 ft of elevation for every 1 mile over a well maintained trail--however it's a standard volcano hike where for every 2 steps up you slide back 1 step. Folks with average fitness can do this hike, but may HATE it--continual ascent, very cold temps at the top with high winds (and potential stinging rain/mist). Not for everyone, but if you make it up to the top you will be treated to phenomenal views of the Antigua valley and a light show with neighboring Volcan Fuego hopefully erupting for you up close and personal. Best done as a an overnight backpacking trip, to watch the sunrise at the peak. Go with Guilmer's family as a guide!!
