Stop At: Pacaya Volcano, Antigua 05001 Guatemala

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.

Duration: 3 hours

Got up early to get this early morning experience but it did take 2 hours to get there. Be prepared to be in a vehicle for a long time. The hike was pretty easy and it was a really gorgeous view at the top. Got some nice marshmallows and guide was great. The ride back was also long but fantastic as we got to see Fuego Volcano and it was lively active! Overall I would say good.

If you are not an avid hiker I would plan on taking a horse up the volcano. We ended up buying horses not that far in and enjoyed the rest of the trip. View from the top was amazing and we saw lots of lava flowing and spewing from Pecaya. Also I would recommend you bring a flashlight if you are doing the tour at night and something to cover your face with while you walk down. The path is very dusty in dry season and it was hard to avoid breathing it in.

Transport picked us up on time outside of our hotel. The ride to Pacaya Volcano was smooth. The guides were informative and kind. And the views of the volcano incredible! Make sure to take some snacks, water, and warm layers as it gets chilly at the top.
Suggestion for tour operators:
Perhaps it would be easier to set up a central pick up location? It seemed we went in circles in central Antigua to pick everyone up.

Our transportation was late picking us up, however once we were on board, things went smoothly. The drivers were pleasant and our guide was great. He was knowledgeable and attentive. The hike itself was terrible. If you are not in good shape I wouldn't suggest it.
