Santo Tomas is a very old and eroded remnant of a volcano. The climb takes at least four hours, through dense sub tropical rainforest, and then through beautiful pine forests. Trais starts at the famous "Fuentes Geroginas," a beautiful hot water spring, ideal for a dip after the climb. View from the summit is very good, especially view of lake Atitlan and the Quetzaltenango highlands. Email me for more info.
