The reviews made it seem like half the people have heart attacks and get air-lifted off the mountain. You don't need a horse or a walking stick. It's about 40 minutes of serious uphill walking (just take your time - you can do it), then...More
Awesome day trip. Appx 4 hour walk. Rented horses for both of our sons (6&7), would not have been possible without. First 2 hours is a pretty tough walk. Great views and an amazing scenery once you get close to the top. Highly recommend this.
The walk to the top is moderate in difficulty. There are guys selling horse rides if you need their help, but we found them a bit of a pain. One of party was a bit out of breath, but wanted to continue walking, but the...More
So my husband and I took the tour to Pacaya last week. We were in a van with about 13 buff French young people. As we started up the mountain with the guide it became clear we weren't going to be able to keep up....More
We were kindly met by our tour guide whom had hired a local docent for the horse back ride up to the top of the Papaya Volcano. There were three of us on horse back, then the tour guide and three men helping with the...More
Saw rock being thrown at the top of the volcano. Tour in morning was clear viewing. Walk is not that hard and guide was good. Booked via adrenalina tours. Pacaya behaves different all the time and you will see different things. Could see feugo erupt...More
If in Antigua, the Pacaya Volcano is a must see. There are professionally guided tours up the trails, and while occasionally strenuous, the climb can be achieved with relative ease. If one tires out, there is always a horse available to help complete the trip....More
We had a shuttle by Antigua Tours to get to Pacaya, once we were there, we were met by our guide Carlos.
Prior to coming, I read in the trip advisor review someone saying that this hike was okay for beginners and that its doable......More
Hired a guide for a private tour. We were picked up at our hotel in Antigua and once we arrived at the volcano we were met by another guide. At the beginning of our walk we were joined by two older men on their horses...More

Agree with everyone else. A light rain jacket and proper hiking shoes are essential. Take water to sip, there is a little tienda for water, food and beer at the bottom and they sell water near the top. This was one of my... More
Agree with everyone else. A light rain jacket and proper hiking shoes are essential. Take water to sip, there is a little tienda for water, food and beer at the bottom and they sell water near the top. This was one of my highlights of Guat.
It's hard but you can do it. It will cost around $12-$20 considered there is a bus that takes you to the skirts of the volcano. it is so worthy, however, it is hot and at some points a little steep but I saw some people... More
It's hard but you can do it. It will cost around $12-$20 considered there is a bus that takes you to the skirts of the volcano. it is so worthy, however, it is hot and at some points a little steep but I saw some people (elder and not so) doing it, in perfect outcome.
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.
