Hiking up Santa María Volcano
Santa María Volcano, towering over 3772 meter adobe sea level, is Guatemala’s fourth highest volcano.
The only eruption in recent history occurred in 1902, this being the world’s third largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century.
As a result of this eruption, a smaller volcano -Santiaguito- was borne on its slops.
This small volcano remains very active and one can enjoy a view of its activity from the summit of Santa María Volcano.
