Our group meets at Old Town Outfitters Shop in Antigua at 14:00hrs. Our drive to
the trailhead is just over 1 hour in private transport from Antigua to the Park Office. As our group moves up one of the myriad of trails on the mountain, our guide will direct the group toward active surface or sub-surface lava flows near the summit. We’ll undoubtedly encounter geothermal hot-spots on the cooled lava formations – which are always available to help roast marshmallows! Your Old Town guide will arrange the group’s campsite close to one of Pacaya’s many beautiful vistas. A freshly prepared dinner will be readied for the group while you have ample opportunities to enjoy the sunset views and fiery orange glows which characterize Pacaya’s surface lava flows after dark. Hot coffee and tea will keep your group warm after sundown, and after a good night’s rest in tents and bags - views of surrounding highland volcanoes Agua, Fuego and Acatenango will greet campers at first light. After breakfast our group will break camp and have a relaxed descent of Pacaya’s slopes as we move down to the trailhead. Our group returns to Antigua by private transport to arrive in town at ~12:00hrs.
