    Loop to the Indian Nose from San Juan. Entering the park costs 30 quetzals, the actual trail starts close to the Mirador Kaqasiiwaan, which I visited some days before so I didn’t stop there. The trail is very clear but t...

    A very strenuous climb with amazing payoff views at the top of the tallest volcano on the lake. The last hour the trail was mainly rough and slippery volcanic rock but from the top you will have a panoramic look at the l...

    Fairly easy yet scenic trail that runs along a ridge along the lake with great views of all three volcanoes the whole way. A couple hills and a few spots where you have to scramble up or down rocks but generally ok for m...

    Hike up to base camp then later hike to summit to view sunset and eruptions from other summit. Elevations seems accurate but moving time is not, it took much longer.
