This volcano is also known as "Cerro de las Flores" and is located in the town ofJutiapa, Department ofJutiapa. It has a height of 1544 meters.
|How to get there:|
Take the road that leads toJutiapaand in the kilometer 111 take the detour to the left (if you are coming from Guatemala City). Ask if that is the road to the settlement El Aguacate and continue your trip for approximately other seven kilometers. It's an unpaved road in good conditions. In this place park your vehicle and ask the help of one of the residents to serve as guide.
If you travel by bus, take one that goes to the town ofJutiapaand get down in the entrance to the settlement El Aguacate. To come back, take the bus in the paved road.
The climbing time to the peak is two hours and the descending time is one hour and a half.
