I just got back from my hike up Acatenango Volcano with CA travellers. I had an incredible experience camping along side the erupting Fuego volcano and watching it in all its glory. The views during the night are truely amazing. This was seriously a bucket list must see experience for me and I highly recommend it. The hike up to base camp is around 4-6 hours depending on fitness levels in your group. You are also climbing up in altitude so some people may experience some altitude sickness, I would take some tablets if you think you might need them. The start of the hike is gravelly and steep but after around 1 hour you begin to hike through lush alpine forest (it’s still fairly steep but starts to cool down as you keep going higher) the last hour to base camp is much flatter and easier. We each had to carry our own packs with an inner sleeping bag, warm clothes, food and water. The food was really good and ample. The mat we slept on was really comfortable for a camping mat and we had plenty of room with 2 people per 3 man tents. You can borrow a medium sized pack, warm gloves, a beanie and a head torch from CA if you need too. They also give you a rain poncho but it’s water resistant at best so take a waterproof coat if you have one. All in all I loved CA and highly recommend them. Our two guides were great and helpful, CA make ethical decisions like reuseable food containers and water packs for each hiker. They support local families and charities and help to upskill their guides with English or other career progression skills. They have also started training the first ever female guide to work on Acatenango. Go CA! 👏🏻🌋

Had an amazing time doing the two day Acatenango volcano tour. Our tour guide, Auaur was exceptional and looked after us the whole time and spoke very good English. We read a few online review with other companies saying that the food you get is not enough - but this was not the case! The food was absolutely amazing for all three meals, with hot chocolate after the hike, red wine watching the volcano at night and hot tea at the top of summit. Each meal was very big and tasty. The camp is also the closest to the volcano - we got to see the action up close and personal around a cute campfire and fairy lights. The sleeping arrangements were the best we have ever experienced with a rubber mat laid down on the floor, mattress, two blankets, pillow and a sleeping bag. They also provided us a warm jacket, ski mask, gloves, hiking shoes, day pack for no extra cost which saved us a lot of money & hassle trying to hire the equipment. 10/10 tour! Go with CAtravellers!

We had a phenomenal experience with CA Travelers. From the start to the very end, they were extremely professional. Their excellent communication skills made the entire experience a breeze. They provided top quality gear for everyone to use, big delicious meals which everyone enjoyed, esp the red wine at base camp. We were very lucky with the weather and could see Fuego erupt all night long. Would highly recommend this company

I booked the acatenango tour having not before hiked a volcano. This was one of the most challenging hikes I’ve ever done! It’s very strenuous but so worth it when you see the views. Ca travelers look after you so well. They provide you with jackets, gloves, fcemasks and 4L of water in a pack you can wear (with straw) (in a bid to reduce plastic bottle waste) this to me was great. You are picked up from your hostel or home stay and the drive takes about 1 hr. they provide all meals for the overnight stay up the mountain but I’d recommend taking some nuts or extra fruit of your own just incase you need extra energy! They catered for me with a vegan meal which was very much appreciated. The guide was nice and very patient. Especially with me at sunrise and getting to the top of the voclano. The views are truly spectacular and being able to watch Fuego erupt and actually seeing lava was magical! By the end you feel pretty broken but also a massive sense of achievement! I would 100% recommend this company to go with. I paid 250Q which is around £25. An absolute bargain.

Avoid using CA TRAVELERS from Antigua, Guatemala. We had a very unpleasant experience with this company. They left us stranded in Panajachel after we organized and paid day trip from Antigua. As shuttle bus didn’t show up at all, so we didn’t have a choice but to pay $115 USD for a private car back to Antigua. The next morning we tried to find an explanation from Alejandro, who sold us the tickets, but we couldn’t find him, although we went to his office 3 times. I implore everyone to avoid this company and report any more instances of unprofessionalism. Absolutely avoid this place at all costs!

Sorry to hear this, but you make a mistake. we are Catours Motorcycle Tours. we do tours on motorcycle around Guatemala, and also we have a Hostel in Antigua for motorcycle travelers. so if you can delete this review from us i will appreciated and write the comment to the other company that you end it up having this problem. Thanks a lot!! Jose Aldana Catours Mototours Manager.
