A must do in Guatemala!

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!!
