What to do in
emergency situations?

 

a. Mountain sickness
You may suffer from dizziness, nausea or vomiting, headache or shortness of breath due to reduced atmospheric pressure and low oxygen levels. The first thing you should do if you suffer from mountain sickness is to stop or descend to a lower altitude, making as little physical effort as possible.

b. Hypothermia
The most extreme case is hypothermia, which is a decrease in body temperature between 32 and 35 °C, the most frequent signs being: frequent tremors, fatigue, cold skin and hyperventilation. You should always call the rescue bodies, but while they arrive, protect the person from any source of cold, remove all wet clothes, heat the central part of the body and try to maintain the level of the temperature of the affected person. 

c. Injuries 
In case of any sprain or any fall in rocky terrain, it is always advisable to bring bandages, alcohol, band-aids and anti-inflammatory in your kit, to relieve these injuries.

What Activities 

can you do?

 

  • Trekking
    In this Park you can make ascent hikes in the 4 kilometers towards the third highest summit of Guatemala and Central America; or 4 kilometers towards the Fuego volcano viewpoint. It is recommended to use the appropriate equipment and walk the marked trails and confirmed by local guides, because the terrain conditions are variable, as well as the climate and visibility can vary suddenly,
  • Horse-back ride
    Check with local guides and tour operators about the availability of horses to make the ascent, since they are also used to carry the load of equipment.
  • Photography
    If observation and appreciation of landscapes, flora and wildlife is your thing, in the Park there is a great diversity of opportunities to document your experiences and share them. We recommend consulting with your guides and tour operators your expectations and specific intentions, to schedule a satisfactory visit and not delay groups that want to ascend to the summit.
