    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Pacaya Volcano, Antigua 05001 Guatemala

    Pacaya is one of the most accessible active volcano walks that you can experience in the country. The tour starts with a pick up and transfer from any centrally located hotel in Antigua. After one hour ride you will arrive at the entrance of the National Park where you have time to go to the bathroom and prepare your self to climb. This tour can be walking or in a horse (horse is not included). After walking along the trails of the volcanic sand with great views, you will reach the plateau from which you can see the main crater of the volcano. For safety reasons is not possible to visit it, but you will see some steam emanations produced by the heat of the volcano. Come across the dried lava fields to roast your marshmallows. After a while, is time to start to descend and take your bus back to Antigua.

    Duration: 3 hours

    We had a great time. We were picked up from our hotel and then made a stop for coffee and snacks. Our guide at Pacaya was very nice and horses followed along the way for those that needed them. The hike was tough at some parts but is very doable and again they followed with

    Reasonable price. The trail guide is very nice too. We are in a group of about 20 people. It seems not relevant which agent you book with as people are pooled together by different agents. but booking online here is convenient and reliable.

    You get what you pay for. Basic guide to the top (you could easily do it on your own) but it would cost more to get there on your own. You more or less pay for the shuttle.

    Hi Cinthya, thank you for your feedback. This is a common misperception we have had, and it is a bad use of our description. We will change the itinerary description to avoid more inconveniences. The service we are offering is round trip transportation, and a local guide to take the group on the designated route to reach the summit. Again thank you for your comment, and we will make the changes on our itinerary description.
