The Pacaya Volcano is the most active volcano in Guatemala, with a height of approximately 2500 meters. Over the sea, the environment is made up of wet forests and rocks. It has stunning views of the Calderas Lagoon and three other volcanoes: Agua, Fuego and Acatenango. The Volcano of Pacaya is easily accessible, so it is not necessary to be in good shape to climb it. You will visit the edges of the base of the main cone to see the eruption of lava if it is active. The climb time is 2 and a half hours walking. And descent is 1 hour
