We booked this adventure as the Pacaya Volcano Climbing excursion through the Celebrity Infinity. Alfredo, our organized, knowledgeable, informative, helpful and well spoken tour guide, and Rafa, our skilled driver, were with Kim'arrin Services/Martsam Tours and Travel. We were welcomed onto our comfortable van with...More

This hike up Pacaya was very manageable for a morning hike. Cloud hung low that day so we didn't have great views until the walk down. But I would definitely recommend. Roasting marshmallow in the volcano was the highlight.

We enjoyed our time spent at Pacaya Volcano. The staff that work there were all very nice and knowledgeable. There is a cool little gift shop at the base of the Volcano. I think most people in average shape can make the climb. My wife...More

It is defiantly and truly one of the amazing things you can do while in Guatemala. To me it's definitely one of a life time opportunity. The hike it self to get to Pacaya is not that easy. It's very sloppy and you constantly keep...More

The hike takes less than an hour upwards to the highest point (which is I believe at 2300m, while the volcano is 2550) and offers great views on the surrounding volcanos (Agua, Fuego, Acatenango). The contrast between green vegetation, the blue sky and the black...More

We took the afternoon tour from Antigua. Transportation cost was USD$15 and the entrance fee was USD$7. Not bad for the great experience. The van picked us at 2 pm from the hotel and took 1.45 minutes to get to the park entrance (you have...More

Pretty surreal experience. Fog, sun, awesome views, interesting guides, 'moon rocks', Volcano Shop, history, hiking, fresh air, fellow travellers, decent price for tour - what is not to like!

Pretty awesome to be able to hike an active volcano. Hike wasn't too bad and we got a horse to put our 3 year old on for maybe Q50. Great vistas and geology.

Tour from Antigua cost Q60 + Q50 entrance fee. Pacaya is active, so you don't go to the top. There's no lava, but small fire was present and fumes. View is very good. Even if you go up Acatenango, you can go here too -...More

It's further away from Antigua but they drive was not too long. We chose this hike because it's shorter than Acatenango and much easier. Most of the trail offered views of town and Volcano Fuego and Acatenango. We were told that the part near fresh...More

I would say don't pack hiking shoes just for this. Sneakers are fine if you are in decent shape and don't have ankle issues. Hiking boots would be better, but only if you have the space in your luggage.
