Hike from the base camp to the top closest to the Fuego Volcano, one of the most impressive and active in Central America (because of this it is not possible to reach its rim). It shares the ascent path from the town of La Soledad with the Acatenango volcano and also the base camp area, from which the path to Fuego is a slight descent at the beginning but with a very steep slope reaching almost the top.Show more

Trail that leads to the top of Volcán de Agua, a dormant volcano and one of the highest in Guatemala, can even be seen from afar from the city of Antigua Guatemala. Its slopes are covered with thick forests and it is characterized by its cone shape, so the route of ascent is quite constant.Show more
