  • I’m currently on a year-long trip, driving from San Francisco to Argentina, and my experience of spending a night with Catalino’s family and the subsequent hike of Acatenango with Warner as our guide ...  more »
  • A friend gave us the catalino contact that manages the association. He answered us immediately and came to pick us up old, took us to his little town below the volcano in his family home where we dined, slept and had breakfast. We felt more than welcome in his family, we learned to make tortillas with his wife, we shared with his girls and we chatted a lot with him. The day after we left with Alejandro, one of his guides: in 10 minutes by car we were starting the trek and with the opportunity to be alone with him (when all the groups we crossed were 5 to 20 people in a row!). The guide was beautiful: it adapted to our rhythm quite quickly, I tell us a lot about the road and the volcano, when we arrived we let ourselves rest and made a fire, shared us of their food... we had food prepared by the wife of catalino: local, fresh and more than all had adapted to the fact that we are the two vegans, which I doubt achieve the great agencies that make the total pack pay very little. upon returning home he took us to thermal waters in a nearby village. We recommend 100 percent for all aspects: support to small family business, possibility of sharing, ecological awareness not to use much plastic or pre-made food... and the possibility of not walking in groups. Thank you for the great experience!! Elina and Gabriel :)

  • Fantastic guide service. Catalino, his family and friends organizes everything you need to go hike the Acatenango volcán. Antes extraordinary experience.
  • You can take a Guide to hike up to the Volcanos in the area. The Guides are very proffessional and certificated by the INGUAT (Tourism office of Guatemala). If you take this guides you gonna help the local economy and avoid expensive agencies, so you can safe money and its very probably get a private guide. Our tour was such a great experience, i highly recommend this place. If you have a car, u can park it secure too for free.
