Description

Hotel very close to the starting point of the Tajumulco trail. Don Abigail provides secure parking for campers at 30Q per vehicle (which we used). Water available, did not ask for electricity but there is a plug in the parking lot. Hotel accomodation is 50Q per person.
Right next to the road, so traffic noise (was tolerable at night).
Owner can organise a guide for the hike, also with horses (around 350-400Q guide + horse overnight trip).
Phone number on the sign is incorrect, correct is 57608022.

Latest Check-Ins

I actually parked for the night at the restaurant over the road (don't want to include it as a separate point as they may not appreciate an influx of overlanders, but they didn't hesitate to say it was fine when I asked. was nice to be a bit back and elevated above the road, and left my van while trekking too then had lunch there after.

Volcano took me a solid 4 hours to the base of the peak and then maybe half an hour or 40 minutes to top it - out of puff! There's a longer but easier oath to descend from the peak which you'll stumble on if you walk round the crater - it descends towards the smaller second peak and then cuts left to rejoin the main path.

Lovely to have friendly canine company all the way up and back - I felt bad about not having more food and especially water to share with her. Name's Sola, according to the restaurant owners who given her scraps - photo attached - give her a belly rub from me if you see her!

Stayed a night here in our van, then left it in his secure parking while we did the summit of Tajumulco the next morning. Paid 40q and didn’t haggle. Flat space behind a locked gate and he has a toilet and shower you can use. Large enough for about 6 rigs, or more if you park each other in.

Also, excellent, large lunch across the street. Great hot chocolate too.

The hike was tough! We were not acclimatized at all (spent the previous night in Xela at least) and not fit at the moment either, so it took us a solid 5 hours to climb, then 2 to get back down. 2 lovely dogs joined us for the whole hike and we fed them some crackers. The path isn’t on google maps or maps.me, but it is on AllTrails. Even without a map, it’s pretty easy to follow, mostly a straight path to the summit. We had no problem without a guide. For the last stretch, just follow the white crosses to the peak. In hindsight, I would have left earlier than 6:30, as weather usually comes in around midday, and we got poured on the whole way down. Other than all the rubbish along the trail, there are some good views while it’s clear. Enjoy!

Stayed 1 night in our van and parked another night while camping on Tajumulco. Road noise is really loud. Very basic amenities, but Don Abigail is very friendly. 30Q per night.

There is a dog in the neighborhood who will follow you up the volcano and back down again. She’s super sweet. Bring some dog food and extra water and you will have a great mountain guide to the summit.

We ask the old man that runs the place if we could park the car for the night and during the next day: he accepted and was very friendly. We paid 30Q for the night and the day. Parking is big enough but I am not sure if it will accept RVs.
There is also a very nice restaurant, Puerta al volcan, in front of it, that could be a nice place for overnight parking or day parking.
