2. Top 5 volcanoes to hike: Guatemala, a small country but full of volcanoes. Even if you are an expert or not, we have volcanoes for all levels and physical conditions.

Xela is located at 2333 metres over sea level, very high but perfect to start the hiking adventure.

So, here is the list:

> Santa MarĂ­a volcano, this is an impressive and a hard volcano to clime but the effort worth it.

> Tajumulco volcano, officially the highest in central America, but not the harder so the opportunity to be at a top is unique.
