    Pacaya Volcano
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission excluded
    Pacaya is one of the most accessible active volcano walks that you can experience in the country. The tour starts with a pick up and transfer from any centrally located hotel in Antigua. After one hour ride you will arrive at the entrance of the National Park where you have time to go to the bathroom and prepare your self to climb. The hike is a moderate degree. We suggest to wear hiking boots, and a hiking stick, if you don´t have one you can rent a wooden stick that the locals can rent you for as little as Q5.00. This tour can be walking or in a horse (horse is not included). After walking along the trails of the volcanic sand with great views, you will reach the plateau from which you can see the main crater of the volcano. For safety reasons is not possible to visit it, but you will see some steam emanations produced by the heat of the volcano. Come across the dried lava fields to roast your marshmallows. After a while, is time to start to descend and take your bus back to Antigua.

It was a large group, so unless you rode a horse and the guide spoke English, you couldn’t learn anything along the way. I don’t think this was a simple hike. It took 21/2 hours and once you were on the lava rock your balance was very difficult. Even my 17 year old fell,

We did the half-day tour from Antigua and we had a great time! My partner and I are moderate hikers and did not find the hike to be particularly challenging but very pretty and a great was to see a volcano. There are some parts of the trail that are steep but then it levels out.

Great value for price paid. Driver was on time and careful while driving. The hike is quite accessible and the view is stunning. Our guide gave us all the time we needed up there to take pictures from every angle. The tour even included marshmallows!

Great fun! Hike was a lot of elevation gain with few switchbacks. Harder than I anticipated! Be sure to bring flashlights if you do the late hike, as it is very dark after sunset and the volcanic rock is sharp to scramble upon! Roasting marshmallows up there was a hoot! Very
