The second highest Summit in Central America, Tacaná, is located in the border between Guatemala and México. From the main cone, you’ll enjoy great views of two amazing countries. This is the best place to see the highest Central American volcano, Tajumulco.
Known by the indigenous mames as “Tacnahuyú”, wich means “house of fire” due to ancient eruptions.
Not many tourists visit this volcano, so you will enjoy the silence only interrupted by the noises of nature. Trees, flowers, rocks and some local tiny huts will be your only companions.
The forest and the views during the entire hike are amazing as well; with clear weather, the stars will shine over your head. But if the rain falls, prepare to hike through colorful flowered misty trails.
