What You Can Expect
Once you reach the base of Pacaya, begin your 2.5-hour hike up the volcano with your expert guide. Enjoy a mild walk to a viewing spot at the lagoon of Calderas and take in panoramic views of the Agua, Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes. Continue toward the top as you learn about the history of this active volcano and see unique volcanic vegetation along the way.
Arrive at a plateau along the trail, where you'll see the main crater of the volcano and marvel at incredible views of the Guatemala landscape. For safety reasons, you won't actually visit the crater, but you will get to see red-hot lava flowing and a few steam baths created by the heat of Pacaya.
Spend time relaxing here and admiring gorgeous views of the land below before hiking back to the base of the volcano.
Great climb. Very knowledgable guide and quite interesting. Would have like to get closer to the top, but doesn;t seem practical.
The hike was very physical so we ended up renting a horse to make the trip which made for a fun rest of the way. The guides were fun and very knowledgeable .
