The tour begins from Antigua Guatemala or Guatemala City, depending on where you´re staying. Pacaya Volcano is the most active volcano in Guatemala, it’s 2500 meters above sea level. Its vegetation is humid forest and rocks and has impressive views of the lagoon of Calderas and three other surrounding volcanoes: Agua, Fuego and Acatenango. Pacaya is very accessible for all ages, you don’t need to be an experienced hiker or climber to make it to the top.
