Volcan de Agua is a perfectly shaped conical volcano which dominates above a beautiful ancient town of Antigua, Guatemala. It is a holocene stratovolcano that has not erupted in historic time. The
elevation difference from Antigua is more than 2100 metres. The summit crater can be
reached in 4-5 hour walk up the steep slope from the Maya village of Santa Maria de Jesus.
