Steam baths, hot lava, and stunning lagoon views await you on this one-day trek up the slopes of Pacaya—Guatemala’s most active volcano. For $65 US, Guatemala Adventure Tours and Travel provides transportation from your hotel in Guatemala City and knowledgeable tour guides who will get you as up close and personal to steaming molten lava as possible.
The trek is moderately easy, about 2 and 1/2 hours of hiking through humid forest and volcanic sand paths. For those wanting to add a little more adventure to the trip, the journey can be done on horseback. Just imagine the feeling of traipsing under low-slung clouds through a vapor mist on the slopes of this fiery natural wonder.
