Itinerary

When does my tour start?

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk up the side of an active volcano.  Pacaya volcano is one of over 30 volcanoes located in Guatemala. Situated about 19 miles from Guatemala City and right next to Antigua City, this is a unique small group experience.

Your fun and exciting adventure day excursion from Puerto Quetzal will begin in Guatemala right outside the cruise terminal where your federally certified, English speaking guide will meet you, get you checked in and then escort you to your air conditioned transportation.  The drive to the Pacaya volcano is through the lush Guatemala villages.  Your guide will give you information about your day, the history and background of the Pacaya volcano, Guatemala country and culture.

Although this is a climb up the side of a volcano, it is an activity that even children may do. Appropriate clothing and footwear is necessary.  Please wear walking/hiking shoes, sturdy sneakers, etc. - no sandals or flip flops allowed.  Skirts & dresses are also not appropriate.  The peak is at 8,370 feet and temperatures can be chilly – 59 to 69F is common.

You will not want to forget your camera for this.  The views are spectacular on the way but even better when you are walking up the paths.  The hike up will take approx. 1.5 hours where you will pass through a humid tree lined forest, then smaller shrubs and lava rock landscape.  Note that the trail does not go all the way to the top for safety reasons.  Depending on the guest and weather conditions, it might be possible to go to the edge of the crater.

The group will take a rest at the top to enjoy the view.  Depending on the weather, you will have spectacular views of the 3 neighbouring volcanoes, - Agua, Fuego & Acatenango, also commonly called the 3 Sisters Volcanoes.  You might also be treated to views of the Calderas Lagoon below.  The walk down is much quicker – estimated about 1 hour.  This is a fairly active day so please keep that in mind when booking.

There may or may not be visible molten lava depending on the conditions.  But there are "hot spots" and roasting marshmallows over them has become a tradition.  Whether you bring your own or get one from your Pacaya Volcano Cruise Excursion guide...enjoy!

Guests will also enjoy a boxed lunch that includes a sandwich and piece of fruit, varies daily.  Bottled water is also provided.  Guests are welcome to bring their own snacks and backpacks are welcome. Please note that weather may be cool so a light jacket might be a good idea.  There are no proper trails and shoes can get messy and dirty.

After the volcano hiking part of this excursion, you will be taken back to your cruise ship terminal.
