Tajumulco Volcano Hike and Camp

12 January - 9:30 pm | 14 January - 9:30 pm

Tajumulco Volcano Tour guatemala

With its 4220 msnm, Tajumulco is the highest summit in Central America and the Caribbean. Despite its altitude, this one is an easy hike compared to other near mountains; suitable for everyone with an average physical condition.

According to local legends, the ancient gods hid all human goods and crops in this volcano, including crops, fire and water. Famine and war didn’t wait for too long before spreading among people; just before the life extinction, big ants were found taking all the goods out of the volcano, therefore saving the world from destruction.

From this ancient indigenous icon of religion and mythology, you’ll have sights from the Pacific Ocean’s shores through the entire Guatemalan volcanic chain. Tajumulco’s summit is the best place to see the second highest Central American Summit, Tacaná.

Grab your backpack, tie your boots and let’s add this one to your list!
