Tecuamburro Volcano

This volcano is located in the province of Santa Rosa, South/East of Guatemala City, roughly an hour and a half drive.
The summit is covered by large trees, which obstruct most of the view. This, as many other important Guatemalan volcanoes, is inside a private property, surrounded by coffee trees. This month (February) is great for visiting the area. Coffee grains are ripe, and you should try picking them on your way and eating them. They are incredibly sweet and chewing the seed becomes addictive. There is a sulfur lagoon short from the summit of the volcano. This is great to exfoliate your skin, of course, if you don’t mind the smell of rotten eggs. And the lagoon is accessible by car, a few steps on the side of the road. Oh, one more thing; avocado trees are abundant in the area and they give a very delicious fruit. I spent some time collecting a few of them, which where great. Just bring salt, limes and a few tortillas and you’ll have a exquisite snack on your road up the volcano.
