Pacaya Volcano Hike from Quetzal Port

1. Pacaya Volcano Hike from Quetzal Port

Meet your guide at Quetzal Port and begin your tour one hour after the cruise ship arrives at the port. Be transferred from the port to the village near the volcano in a comfortable car, which takes two hours. You do not need to have hiking experience for this activity as the volcano is very accessible and it is easy to reach the top. It takes just two hours to reach the top, which is it at 2,500 meters above the sea level. Here, the environment is created by the humid forest. See the fumaroles escaping from the open volcano on this unique experience.  Descend for an hour and a half then return by car back to get the Quetzal port.

Salvador met us on time and soon we were driving towards Pacaya. The day was simply awesome and the hike up the volcano was amazing with great views and stunning scenery. We stopped off for Guatemalan street food on the way back and chatted with our guide about his beautiful country. Salvador is a first class guide and we would certainly recommend this trip.
