Create an itinerary including Laguna Chicabal
Hike through the high-altitude volcanic region to Laguna Chicabal. After a relatively short trek through the cloud forest hills, you'll come a lagoon (sacred to the local indigenous cultures), which lies in the crater of the now-extinct Chicabal volcano. Bring study footwear and a camera, and also consider leaving early: clouds tend to form over the lake, giving it an eerie look, but diminishing the sweeping views from the top of the crater. Make Laguna Chicabal a part of your Quetzaltenango vacation plans using our Quetzaltenango trip itinerary planning site.

  • Was a 45 minute hike, incredible views!! You have to go early to catch the sunrise, on the weekends the Mayans do their rituals.
