Includes: Lunch, transportation, guide, and good time.

Trip Description:
Want to do a real adventure climb full of beauty and diversity but not too much time to spare? This is the excursion for you! 5am to 5pm- up and back in a day! Climbing Acatenango is a challenge but it is a reward in beauty and a rare Guatemalan experience that you will never forget. At O.X. we feel it is the most beautiful and diverse volcano in all of Central America. You will ascend 5,000ft (1500m) over roughly 4 miles and through 4 different temperate zones (high farmland, cloud forest, high-alpine forest, and volcanic) and return the same way. The climb is steep so prepare yourself mentally for a very physically demanding hike (especially purgatory). Have lunch at 13,000ft and watch as Volcan Fuego growls, moans and coughs up huge plumes of smoke and shoots red hot rocks the size of Volkswagen vans hundreds of feet in the air. All in a days work with Acatenango's 5 to 5 tour. (Minimum 3 people) Contact us to help you find more folks.

Damage: (U.S.) $59.00

Recommendations:

SLEEP: BOOK a BED at our Base Camp for the night before so you can just roll out of bed at whatever awful hour in the morning (6am departure for overnight tour, 5am departure for day trips) and we store your bags in big burly lockers. :) Starting at $8. per night.

WATER: 3 liters minimum and snacks (chocolate bar, nuts, etc.) for 3 rest breaks. GEAR: Have comfortable hiking clothing, preferred is non-cotton clothing. As you progress up the volcano, the weather is likely to change, with an increase in cold and wind. So we advise a wind-breaker jacket and fleece. Rain Gear is essential anytime of year. Sunscreen, sunglasses, baseball cap, non-cotton clothing, comfortable-capable shoes. Day-pack is fine.

KNOW: Because it is just a day trip, we do not have a formal meeting, but be sure to arrive on time, 5am. You must be paid in full and have signed the waiver to hike. Please contact our office for more important information and we will sent it out to you. Thanks

The Real Adventure in Guatemala...

We are a professional ADVENTURE guide operator. This means we are in the business of chaos management and calculated risk. We cannot control our environment, we take you into MOTHER NATURE, she will determine your experience. We have no control over the weather, volcanic eruptions or any other form of chaos, we can only prepare to handle these situations. This is why it is called an ADVENTURE. So please do not sign up for any of our tours if you cannot accept our limitations working with nature. The natural world is tough, this is simply the nature of the business. But if you are ready to truly live, then join us for something amazing. OX
