  • Soak up the impressive night time views of Fuego Volcano from your camp site on Acatenango.

Description

This is a difficult hike not for the faint of heart. The Acatenango hike is more difficult than the regular volcano hikes, however for the adventurous traveler this hike is absolutely worth it. The scenery is breath taking, especially the views of Fuego Volcano, an active volcano that occasionally spits lava! You will be able to see Acatenango’s fiery neighbor while hiking through a beautiful pine forest. Camping is available for those who want to see this impressive view by night. The hike begins at 3400 m with a 1.5 hour climb of La Torre road, until you reach 3.828m which is the highest non-volcanic point in Central America.
