My friend and I are both avid hikers and really looked forward to this hike. We took a tuk-tuk up from San Pedro (15Q each) and paid 100Q for park entrance. We were not going to take a guide initially, but were persuaded when they told us that people do get lost on the trail (no additional fee). We started... More

My family and I hiked Volcan San Pedro and loved the experience. The hike was 3.5 hours up, 2.5 hours down with thousands of steps. It was tough but well worth it. The views are spectacular!

Really enjoyed the ascent of San Pedro Volcano early in the morning. We walked through coffee plantations, corn fields and humid forest. We didn't see many people. Unfortunately we had partial views over lake atitlan at the top as it was cloudy. But still it was nice to do.

Nice hike and we were lucky to get a crystal clear day! Left in the dark and guides were very helpful.

I really, really enjoyed this hike. I booked my trip through Bigfoot Travel (100Q, whereas the other companies charged 250Q). I found my guide knowledgeable and friendly. He taught me a few words in Tzutujil Mayan, but we conversed mostly in Spanish. He also spoke some basic English. There is a lookout point part way up, which has an amazing... More

We walked up to the tourist office from San Pedro (by football staduim). It is a nice walk between coffee fincas 40 min. You see a lot of coffee and avocadoes on this hike in general. The price 100 Q includes a guide, but you can go on your own, so its up to you. Impossible to get lost though.... More

3 hours up 2 hours down. 1100 meters and a wonderful view on top (leave early before the clouds and winds arrive). Trail is well marked and clean, so the money you pay is put to good use.

What an incredible trek! It was as difficult as advertised: a steep,1,300m climb with almost zero flat stretches. My girlfriend and I are in good shape and managed to reach the summit in just over 2 hours, but it was at an exhausting pace with few breaks. The view at the top was well worth the pain. We were lucky... More
