Meet your guide before dawn prepared for a challenging half-day trek to the top of the Santa María Volcano. Take a short drive to the base of the volcano which is situated next to the small village of Llanos del Pinal. Embark on an early morning hike to reach the top of the fourth highest volcano on Guatemala, accompanied by your friendly and informative guide.

Reach the summit and enjoy the breathtaking view from the top of the Santa María. See numerous other volcanoes such as Tacana, Tajumulco, Chicabal, Lacandon, the volcanoes around Lake Atitlan as well as the volcanoes Acatenango, Fuego and Agua. This trek is especially popular because the top of the Santa Maria Volcano gives a perfect view down on the crater of the Santiaguito Volcano, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The Santiaguito is the security valve of the bigger Santa Maria and is in constant eruption.
