Hiking Pacaya Volcano

Pacaya is by far the most popular volcano to climb in Guatemala, and for good reason.

The volcano is easy to climb and provides the opportunity to climb an active volcano. On clear days you can see the volcanoes of Agua, Fuego and Acatenango.

At the top of the Pacaya Volcano you will feel the heat, smell the sulfur, and are likely to actually see lava.

Because of its easy hike, and relatively low elevation -2.552masl- hiking the Pacaya Volcano is an enjoyable activity.
