I joined Ox Expeditions for the 5-to-5 day climb of Volcan Acatenango. Our guide for the day was Brien Bower and he made the experience an absolutely unforgettable one. Brien was a great motivator. Throughout the climb, he exuded so much positive energy, encouraging us when we started to tire. He impressed us with his deep understanding of the terrain... More

The Acatenango Overnight Trek was definitely one of the highlights! Physically tough, but definitely every step worth it!!! OX might be the best company ti do it with, the pre meeting with our guides (Gian, David) was very informative and they took a lot care of us!, you can get the whole equipment (for free and some things renting), which...

Just got back from the overnight Acatenango hike, from start to finish it was an amazing experience. Professional guides and great equipment to prepare me for all eventualities. To reach base camp and be greeted by Volcan Fuego was an awesome sight, seeing lava spew from the summit and into the night. We woke up at 4am the following morning... More

I did the Acatenango overnight hike with Ox and it was the best decision I made this summer! You'll find cheaper companies to go with, but I would avoid those and pay the little extra to go with Ox. I can't imagine having a better experience on this hike! We were totally prepared, with all the right equipment, warm sleeping... More

My friend and I did the Acatenango overnight hike and stayed at the hostel the nights before and after. The staff is great, very friendly and helpful. We had a short meeting the night before the hike to go over how it would go and what to bring. The hike itself is very tough!! Amazing views from the top though!... More

We joined OX for their advanced ghost trail ride and had a blast. The ride is aimed at intermediate to advanced riders, and we had a couple of beginners in our group who struggled. This is not the ride to take if you're new to mountain biking - however, they do offer other rides aimed at less experienced riders. The... More

I recently did the overnight Acatenango Volcano hike. It was one of the most incredible things I have ever done, and I'm so glad I went with OX. Here are a few reasons I love this crew and this hike. 1) PROFESSIONALISM. I can't stress enough how important this is to me, especially when we are talking about an overnight... More

We did the overnight trip to Pacaya which we were super pleased with. OX provided high quality gear (backpacks, sleeping bags, pads, food, etc.) and an English speaking guide. We got to see the sunset, sunrise, as well as Pacaya and Fuego eruptions. The food was a little too spicy, but otherwise good. One of the best things about the... More
