Volcán Santiaguito

Volcán Santiaguito - Guatemala

Santiaguito Volcano is located at the foot of Santa Maria Volcano, and a few kilometres from the city of Quetzaltenango. It's still active, and sometimes, it's possible to see huge puffs of smoke coming out of it. Unfortunately, after nearly two hours of waiting, I didn't have any luck. It was a nice hike of a few hours.
