We will pick you up at your Hotel in Guatemala City or Antigua Guatemala and get you to the base. As soon as you get your water and food supplies, we start climbing.
We will make several stops, so you will aclimatise to the altitudes. You must be an active person for this activity, and we asume that your doctor aproved you for climbing these altitudes(~3700 meters/ 12140 ft.to the summit.) We remain at the sight camp or at the summit as long as we get enough time to descend. Back to the base camp, you will be drop off at you Hotel again, in Antigua or the City Capital.

We will pick you up at your Hotel in Guatemala City or Antigua Guatemala, and take you to the base camp. And start Hiking as soon as you get your water supplies. Upon request you can choose your prefered lunch. You may choose your departing time, so long as you are one single group. I sugest to start climing at 7-8 am and be back at the base at aroung 5-6pm depending on the season. So we will pick you up around 1 hour ahead of starting climbing or even more. Be advice that leaving the City Capital can take aditional 1 hour or more, due to traffic jams in the morning.
Stops are usually made at your request or when needed, depending on you experience hiking, or altitude symptoms. Only withing Guatemala City area extra help can be facilitated a day before, upon request. Please, dont neglect eating something during climbing, because it can substantially help your ascent, so please accept, that according to my experience, you will follow my advice eating, drinking liquids or staying\descending the volcano. There are no restrooms!
Descending the volcano is usually faster but still riskier than ascending, so please follow my advice.
Once at the base you will be given extra water and time to clean up your shoes before boarding your transportation back to your Hotel.
Bring loose garments, sunblock (important), hat, Hiking shoes (not flat-soles, walking, or tennis shoes), camera, and water repelent garments or a cap during raining season.
