Overnight at Pacaya Volcano

The 8,373-foot (2,552-m) Pacaya Volcano looms large over Lake Amatitlán. About an hour’s drive from Antigua, this volcano makes for a convenient day trip while visiting the area or an OVERNIGHT safe adventure experience. Pacaya is active and tends to spew ash and lava on a fairly consistent basis. Some days the activity is limited to quiet steam emissions, while other days see full-blown explosions.
