A gracefully shaped volcano, it constitutes the highest elevation in Central America and the Caribbean.

It is a very easy climb, taking under three hours. The view from the summit, reminds of the Guatemalan flag, because both oceans (Pacific and Atlantic), can be seen on a clear day. From such a vantage point, it is possible to see all of the Guatemalan volcanic chain, extending into El Salvador, and mountains in Mexico. It is definitely great climb, don't miss it if you're in Guatemala.
