Looking for a fun hike to fill your morning in Xela? Why not enjoy breakfast at the lookout point of one of Guatemala's most active volcanoes: Santiaguito. This gradual uphill hike will take you through local farm fields and pine forest as we circumnavigate the imposing Santa Maria volcano to its active vent complex where we will enjoy breakfast while learning about this historic stratovolcano. If we're lucky, we may even get to watch an eruption or two! This is a half-day, moderately easy hike; tours return to Xela around Noon.
