We left early, we booked in advance at "cape verde" at Panajachel dock 100QTZ pp (normal price). Long hard trek to the top. Unfortunately that morning it was cloudy and we could not enjoy the magnificent view we hoped for (do bear that in mind if you do this). The hike itself is really challenging (I consider myself in good... More

This was no easy trek! I'm not exactly the fittest of individuals but I'm certainly used to exercise so I really thought this would be easy! What gets you is the air pressure and the scorching heat but it is SOOOO worth it when you get to the top! The views are absolutely stunning, we unfortunately went up when it... More

If you are fit it is a nice little workout, totally manageable in 3 hours round trip. If you are not in good shape and prepared for relentless uphill climb- good luck. The views from the starting point are nice, especially at sunrise. The view from the top is probably lovely but we had the 1 cloudy morning so we... More

We booked this tour from 'one tour agency near hotel Elena', where you can find a little cat. (*Do Not go this place.) Before this, we asked locales about the entrance fee. Some people say it's 50Q, and some people say it's 100Q. And the tour was 100Q per person and he said it's including everything. So it was quite... More

The volcano is an exquisite site with the mystic lake as a backdrop. Don't miss it-it is best viewed from San Pedro La Laguna.

You can get a guide at the bottom of the hike or just pay the park fee to go up. It's quite steep and you don't have to go all the way up. Great views and lots of forest!

We paid the 100 quetzel entry fee at gate- No problem. You then may have a 'guide' that you meet on a tuk tuk that will offer to take you up for the first 20 min or so - you don't have to pay him - the park does this. And you really only do need them for first 20.... More

a place to relax, enjoy with friends or by your self, you can swing, do kayaking, the people is very friendly and the weather is very nice even if you go on winter or summer, also you can pay a boat and get a trip for all the towns on the lake

You need to get up and at it early for this workout to be worthwhile. Begin the hike at 6am and you should have an amazing view at the top. It takes anywhere from 2.5 - 4 hours to reach the top (dependant on rest times/ fitness level). There are a couple rope swings along the way. You only need... More
