Volcán Tajumulco is a large stratovolcano in the department of San Marcos in western Guatemala. It is the highest mountain in Guatemala and Central America at 4,220 metres (13,845 ft). Tajumulco has had several historical reports of volcanic eruptions, but none have been confirmed to be true eruptions.
On December 20, 2009 the temperatures dropped below zero and for the first time ever, a snowfall has been recorded at the top of the volcanoe, also affecting the highest town in Central America, Ixchiguán in the San Marcos department.
