San Pedro

One of the most photographed volcanoes in Guatemala, San Pedro is one of three volcanoes that dominate the lake Atitlan horizon. A very easy climb, it takes about 3 hours to climb it. View of the lake from the top is absolutely incredible, as well as other volcanoes such as Acatenango, Fuego, Atitlan and Toliman. Guides can be secured at San Pedro. Excellent camping spot in the crater edge. Email me for more info.

    This is a fantastic climb. From the village of San Pedro to the top took me just under four hours. It's tough going, but bloody hell what a view from the top. High over the beautiful Lake Atitlan,...
