Fuentes Georginas is set deep into the volcanic hillsides of Zunil, the volcano of the town's namesake. Eight kilometers away, it's a beautiful, but hilly and curvy journey on tight roads. Some suggest walking or biking up, but with camionetas (pickup trucks that serve as taxis, delivery trucks, and all around utility vehicles) zipping up and down the hillside on narrow mountain roads, it's a harrowing experience to go up in anything but a vehicle. We hopped in a camioneta ourselves, standing in the flatbed for about $3 each way.
