Pacaya Volcano Morning Tour from Antigua

If you’re planning to hike Pacaya Volcano, joining a guided tour is the safest and most fun way to do it. The climb flies by as your guide tells you about the ecosystem en route to an awesome viewpoint over lava fields, and then a picnic lunch is included to fuel your trip back down. Your guide is trained in first-aid and super knowledgeable about the area, providing insight you would likely miss on your own.

We did an all day rock climbing trip to Lake Amatitlan. It ended up being a private tour with 3 of us climbing, our guide, and a driver. It seemed odd that they paid for an additional driver when maybe a guide could have driven, especially since he was providing directions to the driver anyways. Neither the driver nor the guide were particularly friendly. In fact, the guide never asked our names. Additionally, he was very pushy on encouraging us to lead climb. If we wanted to lead climb, I would take a lead climbing class in my town at home and practice in an environment I know. Instead, we wanted someone to set up ropes for us in an area we were unfamiliar with. We wasted over an hour while he tried to teach 2 of us to lead climb even though we weren't interested and ended up finally convincing him that we weren't comfortable to do it. The rock climbing area we went to was quite large and had a large variety of difficulties. The guide did seem to be quite familiar with the area. If this is the only rock climbing company in town, they were good enough to go with but if you have other options, I would explore those as well.

This was an incredible experience. Our guides, Diego and David, we incredibly knowledgable and understanding of the needs of the group. Although, this excursion was physically difficult, I felt completely supported and safe. The views were AMAZING and like nothing I've ever seen before. Seeing a volcano erupting is insane. I definitely recommend. Please bring warm clothes. The night was VERY COLD!

Esmee was an awesome guide, helped us get up the volcano and down in one piece, was patient when we needed to slow down, and had so many great insights and tips for Guatemala. She also went out of her way to assist in booking a private tour of Tikal, and airport shuttles. Great tour company!! Will def use again to try and get up Acuatenango!
