Don’t expect to see fiery lava, but still an amazing hike! Not every day you get to hike up an active volcano and see smoke and rocks flying up and hear the rumbling in the distance! You can’t get near the crater because it is unsafe, but you will see some amazing lava flows and can do the touristy marshmallow roast! On the way if it’s a clear day you will have excellent views of three other volcanos, Agua, Fuego, and Acantenago. A short, relatively easy hike with the option of going on horseback also.
