We did the 2 day hiking tour to see the telica volcano. The climb was a bit heavy, but worth the amazing view! Unfortunately we could t see any lava, so we were bumped about that, but the sunset and sunrise were amazing!

Me and my boyfriend decided not to book with the hostel but to go with quetzaltrekkers instead. Mainly because with them you have the opportunity to go down twice and because it's a non-profit organization. I had a wicked day. I enjoyed it a lot....More
