This trip, I didn't have time to do any climbing. I have three volcanoes on three different continents. Sometimes she was shy, but we saw her most days standing over us indifferent to what we were doing.

I climbed Agua from Santa Maria de Jesus, starting at 6AM. The climb took 3:15 (this is a fast pace) going up. The summit is, unfortunately, completely messed up with various antennas and small buildings. The descent took 2:10.

This is quite a sight from just about anywhere in Antigua. Many years ago, the capital on Guatemala was located on the side of Agua. That predated the move of the capital to Antigua. This perfectly shaped cone is awesome to see!

I had heard that this was an "easy hike" that the view was worthwhile. And indeed, it is! The view of Acatenango and Fuego Volcanoes is awesome! But five hours walking up on winding foot path was way more than I had expected. Plus, getting...More
