The highest mountain in Central America at 4220m, this dormant stratovolcano makes an awesome climb as a side-trip from the city of Quetzaltenango. Nonprofit group Quetzaltrekkers in the town offer an awesome guided trip to the summit for sunrise (though watch out for falling rocks on the final climb to the top).
