    Pacaya Volcano
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Enjoy a full-day trip to the Pacaya Volcano from Antigua Guatemala and discover the beauty of this natural gem! Towering over 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) above sea level, Pacaya is considered Guatemala's most active volcano. After pickup from your Antigua Guatemala hotel, head southeast about 15 miles (25 km) to the base of Pacaya, where you’ll embark on a 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. Once you arrive at a plateau along the trail, marvel at spectacular views of the Guatemala landscape and see the main crater of the volcano. To ensure your safety, you won’t be able to visit the crater, but you will get an amazing view of red-hot lava flowing and steam baths created by the heat of Pacaya. Take a break and relax here as you take in more scenic views before hiking back to the base of the volcano.

While the condition of some of the horses and the jostling for business by some of their owners weren't appreciated, our overall experience was very positive and we are glad we took this excursion. Our guide on the volcano hike, Clara, was friendly and able to answer all of
