Come with Hostal Casa Mazeta on this energetic and exhilarating, 6 hour hike.

Bring your hiking boots, sunscreen, speedos and a bag full of energy. We´ll take you through coffee fincas and pristine tropical forest, with spectacular mountain and volcano views – you can see all 3 volcanoes … Izalco, Ilamatepec and Cerro Verde! We will pass by many waterfalls, and at one point free rappel down through a 40 metre cascade.

The hike is up to around six hours, at an easy, steady pace …. you will never be rushed. Our experienced guide will take a leisurely pace, pointing out the flora and fauna on the way, and allowing plenty of time to take photos or simply take in mother nature.

At the last of the falls ´Los Chorros de la Calera´, we will prepare a picnic lunch for you while you take a refreshing swim in these crystal clear waters.

This hike costs from only $14.00 pp (depending on group size) and includes experienced guide and picnic lunch. The group can generally decide at what time they would like to start, although we recommend setting off between 6:00 am and 8:00 am to avoid the heat of the day (and, at weekends, to take advantage of the food festival to replace all that spent energy!)
