A challenging hike up the active Pacaya Volcano’s lava fields pairs perfectly with a few hours of relaxing in thermal hot springs on this tour from Guatemala City. Save time and money by seeing two volcanic attractions on one tour. Hotel pickup and drop-off, plus an included lunch, make for a hassle-free day that includes both adventure and relaxation.
  • Experience two of Guatemala’s volcanic attractions in one day
  • See lava fields and more as you hike Pacaya Volcano
  • Spend a few hours relaxing in thermal hot springs
  • Lunch at Kawilal Hot Springs included
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off from Guatemala City included
What to Expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your Guatemala City hotel for the drive to Pacaya Volcano. Follow trails around one of Guatemala’s most active volcanoes with a guide, ascending to reach the lava-filled crater. (Note: Due to recent volcanic activity, this portion of the tour may remain closer to the base.) Then, transfer to Kawilal Hot Springs. Relax in the 12 thermal pools, 25 steam baths, and three hydrotherapy baths, all naturally heated by volcanic steam vents and enjoy a delicious lunch. An onsite spa offers additional services including massages and pedicures at additional cost. Conclude your tour with hotel drop-off in Guatemala City.

This was a great way to relieve our designated driver for a day and so glad we opted for this tour. A lovely little hike to see Pacaya Volcano close-up, we were the first party to ascend that day and glimpsed some lava. The views from the top were well worth it and taking El

I want tours to include real pictures instead of fantasy. The hot part of this volcano is a small depression that feels a little warm, littered with candy wrappers and sticks. If you pick up in Guat City it is a long drive, as you detour slowly through Antigua to pick up

Firstly, my wife and I exercise 6 days a week and this hike was not easy. It’s pretty much over an hour of walking up a very steep hill so when everyone calls it a “tough little hike”. It’s exactly that tough and short. The horses are 100 Q if you wanna ride one up there. 4 of 8

Dear Christiana Thank you for having booked with us, our pick up points are in hotels and in the central hotels, we were not able to pick up you in your apartment since the address you sent to us was out of the hotels zone. The traffic is something out of our control, but the customer representative always was in contact with you.
