Guatemala Volcano Tours: Hike Acatenango & Vulcan Fuego
A trusted friend of The Purpose Hostel, we highly recommend Gilmer Soy of Soy Tours and his team for any Volcano hikes on Vulcan Acatenango or Fuego Volcano. We trust their experienced guides and also support their efforts to bring running water to their community.
We are happy to call on your behalf to arrange the Fuego & Acatenango Volcano tour and shuttle pickup at the hostel.

Healthy Restaurants, Cafes, and Coffee in Antigua, Guatemala
Y Tu Pina Tambien
“Some 10 years ago, Y Tu Pina Tambien became established as the quaint neighborhood corner coffee shop and gathering place for good conversation. Located on the south east side of Antigua, Pina offers all day long breakfast, brunch, and all the good stuff in between. At Y Tu Pina you will find a tasty selection of Gluten Free pastries, smoothies, healthy lunch menu including sandwiches and salads, and drinks.” – Facebook
“At this small veggie cafe – sitting just the right side of hippie-dom – fresh organic ingredients are excitingly combined in soups, salads and drinks.
How about a kale, peanut butter and avocado smoothie?
For breakfast there’s quinoa porridge or banana and amaranth-seed pancakes, along with French-press coffee and numerous tea blends.” – Lonely Planet
