1D TOUR Sololá Market Day & Indian Nose Hiking

The perfect chance to visit some of the main highlights at Lake Atitlán area in a short time such as the noisy but colorful and traditional Sololá market and the Indian Nose Peak, but also you'll get to non-traditional destinations as Santa María Visitación and Santa Lucía Utatlán, two small and modern Maya-K'iche towns totally out of the scope of standard tourists.<br><br>The stunning views of the Lake Atitlán and the southeastern Volcanic Chain (Agua, Acatenango, Fuego and Pacaya) at the top of the Indian Nose Peak worth the easy to moderate physical effort. The lake, volcanoes and mountains get lost in a brilliant blue sky during the morning or afternoon, specially in summer days. In winter season you can admire a clear and starry night sky, ideal for an overnight.<br><br>Our guides will acommpany the group since the very moment of arrival at Sololá to the departure from Santa Lucía Utatlán where they live.

Hello I am very concerned about security in Cerro de Oro. I advise to please call local police to accompany you to the hike, this is new this year, I rent houses in Cerro de Oro and never have had a problem of robberies because my Administrator calls the police to accompany them, also it is very important to go to the Alcaldía Auxiliar in the center of the town to denounce the robbery, if police does not get to know they cannot do anything to stop this.

I went on a hike up the Cerro De Oro Mountain with 14 other people including a local guide. On the way down the mountain there was a large male in full camouflage shirt and pants with a black head wrap. He came out of the bushes with a worn golden hand-gun drawn. He patted all 15 of us down and took $300 USD and 5 cell phones. He only took android phones from the people without money. Be careful, from other reviews it seems like the same man has been robbing groups of hikers.

We were traveling today in an organized tour with a guide and a local guy as an escort to Cerro de Oro . After we start descending a guy in a gerila uniform mask and a pistol robbed us. He took money and whenever someone didn't give him enough he aimed the gun to his head . Don't go there!!!!! I know just read the same about the Indian nose.

Had a very nice hike to the top of Cerro de oro with a great guide we hired in Santiago Atitlan whom I very highly recommend. His name is Jose Miguel Coo (+50241173739) and we met him at the docks for the boats from Panajachel. The day before the visit we read about people being robbed with guns and we told him about that. He arranged a police escort for us with the cops actually hiking with us:) in the end there were no problems and he showed us some nice places which we wouldnt be able to find for ourselves. Highly recommend the hike and Jose Miguel!!

Our group of four (including guide) was also robbed at gunpoint while coming down the Cerro de Oro trail. Sounds like the same man, as he was dressed in camo and had a face mask. He took our money but was not interested in phones, bags, etc. Nice enough view but definitely not worth it. Stay away.
