Semi-private hike. Pacaya is an unforgettable adventure in the genuine sense of the word. The hike up one of Guatemala’s most active volcanoes is an unmissable experience. About an hour’s drive from Antigua, it’s a hike of moderate difficulty which most reasonably fit people can do. The hike up and down takes around 6 hours which includes time spent at the peak. Pacaya is awe-inspiring, surreal and put simply a one-off experience. The combination of seeing nature’s power being used to toast marshmallows (bags can be bought at Pacaya’s start point) will leave you scratching your head in wonder on many levels. Have an experience to remember with THGuatemala.
