Maya-Guatemala-037.jpg | In search of the Maya culture in Guatemala

Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, March 2012. Santiaguito is a dacitic lava dome complex which has been growing since 1922 in the crater left by the catastrophic 1902 eruption of Santa Maria volcano, Guatemala. Recent activity has involved small explosions, incandescent rockfalls, emission of block lava flows and dome inflation. Pyroclastic flows generated by collapses at lava flow fronts or resulting from dome collapses have also sporadically occurred. Quetzaltenango, also known as Xela, its mayan name, is the base to explore the surrounding traditional maya villages and the Santiaguito volcano. Guatemala is a great country to experiencce the Mayan lifestyle and see the ruins of ancient cultures. Photo by Frits Meyst/Adventure4ever.com
