Guatemala’s lively volcano Santiaguito starts with a explosion of ash & stones every couple of hours

So naturally we chose to increase the crater and move camping nearby.

To begin with, allow me to tell you a tiny bit about the volcano. Even the Santiaguito Crater is a really active lava dome that’s a portion of the bigger Santa Maria Volcano system.

In 12,375 ft tall, Santa Maria Volcano reluctantly exploded in 1902, blowing the entire Southern side of this mountain, leading to one of the greatest eruptions of the 20th century and killing over 10,000 individuals.
