Volcân Tajumulco: 13, 800 ft
This is the highest peak in Central America! About eight of us left Xela around 10:30pm, drove on a crazy bus ride for 2.5 hours, started climbing around 1am and summited around 6am (so yes, we drove up quite a ways first!). Saw sunrise, ate our tasty breakfast, hung out and then headed down--it was sweet!
