Students Climb Volcano Pacaya

A short 30 minute drive from Antigua, Pacaya is one of thirty-three volcanoes in Guatemala but one of only a few active ones. The hike is about two hours up and an hour and a half down with spectacular views of the surrounding country side, complete with an amazing sunset. Depending on the day as lava flow varies, the adventure gives you an opportunity to see lava up close and even cook on the hot lava rocks.
