Hiking Pacaya in Feb/March (10 Replies)
Hi, I'm planning a trip to Antigua sometime between mid-Feb and mid-March and wanted to hike Pacaya during that trip. I have read various blog entries on this site about hiking Pacaya but had a few questions : 1) If I wanted to see lava flow, is there any particular time in Feb or March that people would recommend based on previous years (I realize that things can change quickly, but wanted to get some sort of estimate) 2) Specifically for hiking in Feb/March would people recommend...More

However, apparently Guatemala's disaster management agency is now allowing limited access to Pacaya. On facebook, I've seen some pictures that friends took on January 19 of flowing lava on Pacaya....More

I was planning to spend 1 day in Lake Atitlan with either one or both of my boys, hoping to do some swimming and possibly kayaking. Not interested in shopping.

We (2 persons) signed up with Old Town Outfitters for 2-day Acatenago hike, starting Nov. 15 or 16 from Antigua. We are very excited but need more people for the hike - if anyone is interested please contact Miranda from OTO at info@adventureguatemala.com We already paid so the trip is sure to go if someone else joins.
