On occasions you can even see small eruptions and lava flow depending on the activity of the volcano. From the summit, we can enjoy great views of the northern volcanoes, the Pacific lowlands and all the way to El Salvador.
Back at the base of the volcano, our support vehicle awaits us for our transfer back to Antigua.
This tour is possible to be organized during the morning or afternoon, during the sunset, the darkness offers the opportunity of a better lava observation.
Please feel free to contact our travel advisor for more information.
The Pacaya volcano is one of the 33 volcanoes in Guatemala and one of the most active in Central America. With a height of 2,552 meters in the landscape, it is located on the volcanic arch of Cantral America, precisely between the regions of Escuintla and Guatemala.
Since its last eruption in 1965, the volcano has never come to rest completely. Its regular rumble and lava flows give a spectacular display of the mountain’s natural strength.
The active crater of the Pacaya volcano is named after the Guatemalan doctor Alfredo MacKenney, who was the first to climb to its summit to conduct research. MacKenney Crater is accessible, it is inactive.
