Volcán Pacaya, Antigua
One of the country's most active volcanoes, Volcán Pacaya erupts regularly but usually in a mildly explosive fashion. As a visitor, you'll have the opportunity to take guided tours around this natural wonder, which features cooled lava chambers and hot spots (over which you can roast marshmallows). Consider taking a horseback tour of the volcano for a quick and less strenuous excursion compared to the 1.5-hour uphill hike. Put Volcán Pacaya into our Antigua day trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

A nice experience!
Der Aufstieg kann man gut meistern, deshalb sollte man keine Pferde mieten um da rauf zu gehen. Auf jeden Fall ein tolles Erlebnis so nahe an einem aktiven Vulkan zu sein. more »The ascent is easy to master, so you shouldn't rent horses to go up there. Definitely a great experience to be so close to an active volcano.
Bucket-list stuff once in a lifetime experience. I have hiked so many times taken a pickup to the top. Please take time if you visiting Guatemala
One of the most dynamic volcanos in the world.
