Montecristo Volcano

private tour of montecristo volcano guatemala trifinio

Montecristo Volcano is one of the bet kept secrets of Guatemala.

Aside from its many waterfalls and dense cloud forest you will be able to find a wide variety of birds such as resplendent quetzal. This makes the Montecristo volcano and reserve a place to add to your list of must visit places in Guatemala.

During this trip you will walk among this humid and almost virgin mountain complex and camp in it. The place has been well preserved and isn’t crowded with tourists yet. You also get to do some rappeling on one of its waterfalls. If you prefer you can simply swim on the natural pools under it.

DIFFICULTY: Moderate. You don’t require any previous experience at rappelling.
