Depart from a central meeting point in Antigua around 9:00am. You’ll head up toward the town of Santa Maria de Jesus, located at the base of ‘Volcan de Agua’ volcano at 6,790 feet (2,070 meters).
Spend some time wandering this laid-back hamlet, including a stop at its miniscule local market and a trip through the town square. You’ll continue the trip by returning back down to Antigua, crossing through the city center and back up into the hills toward the small village of El Hato.
Upon arriving in El Hato, take a short stroll up the path to Earth Lodge, a local eco-resort where you can kick back in a hammock or grab a snack as you enjoy views of the valley down below and multiple volcanoes off in the distance.
As you descend back down make one last stop at ‘Cerro de la Cruz,’ offering a scenic overlook with Antigua down below. You’ll return back to your starting point at the end of the trip.
