Pacaya Volcano (8,370ft / 2,552 m) is one of the most impressive volcanic landscapes in all of Central America. Set in its own National Park, Pacaya is a storybook volcano with a continuous plume of smoke drifting from its summit and a massive dried lava field forming the valley at the base of its caldera.
You’ll depart Antigua at 8:00 am for a one-hour drive to the volcano. As we move up the myriad of trails on the mountain, Guatemala’s impressive vistas open up before us. Reaching the base of the caldera, your bilingual trip leader will guide you through the rugged dried lava fields, reformed by a massive eruption in 2010. No matter what conditions you encounter on the mountain, you’ll have the opportunity to traverse unique volcanic-rock landscapes as you ascend towards the peak. Here you will stop for a freshly prepared picnic to enjoy along with views of nearby volcanoes Agua, Fuego and Acatenango. There will be plenty of opportunity to explore geothermal hot spots on the cooled lava formations – where its even possible to roast marshmallows!
Your hike down brings across the remaining dried lava fields before you begin a descent through Pacaya’s lush forests and farmland.
Following the hike, you’ll head to a nearby thermal spa whose natural springs are heated by the linked underground activity generated by the very volcano you just climbed.
The spa therapy experience begins with a “thermal circuit”, consisting of immersing the body for short periods of time in natural water pools of varying temperatures, moving from hot to cold. The pools range in temperature from 74°F/24°C to 105°F/41°C. Afterwards you will have plenty of time to return to the natural swimming pools and enjoy a fruit smoothie. You’ll return to Antigua by private transpor, arriving to Antigua early evening.
