    Pacaya Volcano
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission excluded
    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.

Very good experience at the hike! But don’t expect to see any lava, and don’t expect to see the crater from the top! But the walk over lava from 2021 was excellent. The guide Giorgio was very funny and friendly, but the driver not so much! The helpdesk guy was very helpful and responsive.

Driver picked up on time but was quiet the whole way. This is not an informative tour the guide is with you but doesn’t speak much. When you ask about the volcano he shows video but doesn’t explain much nor talks about any of the history . When we arrived to the park the horse riders rush to your van. They opened the door and shoved the horses head in the van for you to choose. The app say they charge $100 Q but in May 2023 they were charging $200Q each way . They follow you up the trail yelling taxi and tell you that you won’t be able to make it up it’s to steep and air gets thin. The price goes up the further up your are. I understand the hustle but it was a little to aggressive for me . The walk itself is not for the lite hearted . It’s a hike up . The rocks are slippery there’s horse sh!$ everywhere but doable . The pizza is delicious ! Expensive but I ate delicious pizza made out of lava rocks . Overall good expensive but I would recommend getting the tour with ATV or horses already included .

Great tour! The hike is not for the weak! It was pretty challenging as it was an uphill trek nearly the entire time. 100% worth the views and the tour guide was great. I would highly recommend renting or brining a hiking stick. There is also an option to ride a horse to the top if you get too tired or know hiking isn’t for you.

Overall it was a nice experience. The hiking was a bit challenging due to my physical condition but the view was really nice near the top of the volcano. Although this is supposed to be a bilingual tour, our guide speaks little English and did not explain much about the volcano

This was wonderful! Pick up on time, stopped for coffee, great and knowledgable guide (Walter) took us on a circular route. Hard climb up but worth it, even tough it was hazy. It seems the morning tour at this time of year is best. And good bus driver.

Thank you, thank you. Was a great experience. Today, it's early May, warmer in town, but cool at the top of the hike. I grabbed the 2pm trip, and we finished around the sun setting. Beautiful up there!

I'd say the hike is intermediate. Agree with some thoughts of other posters! Don't be ashamed to grab the horse (caballo). The horse and their human partners are super kind.

Great hike! Lovely views, would definitely recommend choosing the morning hike as the cloud cover in the afternoon in quite heavy. 6am - but worth it!

Ervin was our tour guide and he took us on a ton of fun paths. He was super knowledgeable about the nature and we were able to learn a ton about the volcanos, plants, and people who live here. Would highly recommend!!

The hike was really nice, but the guide kind of ruined the experience for me. She kept asking me to take a horse ( because I was slow ) but I told her I can do it. She was not encouraging at all. She also kept on speaking Spanish although I asked for an English guide. Overall good trip, guide could’ve been better.
