The Siete Cruces trail is named for the seven Christian crosses marking the route. A strenuous yet beautiful hike, Siete Cruces includes views of Lago Atitlán and Guatemala's volcanic chain. We begin the day with a two hour climb through an old growth pinabete forest near Xecam, Cantel. Following a break for breakfast at the mirador, we ascend Volcán Pico Zunil, reaching the summit in time for lunch. We spend the afternoon descending through a cloud forest into Zunil until arriving at Las Fuentes Georginas, a natural hot spring spa tucked into the fern-covered mountainside. Soothing our sore muscles in the warm, healing waters, we rest and relax before heading back to Chico Mendes or Xela.
