Pacaya Volcano Tour and Hot Springs with Lunch From Guatemala City

9 Hours

Price Breakdown:


You will be picked up at your hotel in Guatemala City and transsfer to Pacaya Volcano (sometimes vía Antigua Guatemala)

This day you will visit the Pacaya National Park. Visit to the most active volcano in Guatemala, its 2500 m. above the sea; the environment is formed by humid forest and rocks.

Transfer to the foot of the Pacaya volcano and from there, we started walking from the town of San Vicente de Pacaya and we started the ascent; The route is estimated at 60 minutes of walking up to a distance of approximately 800 to 1000 meters from the crater. You can appreciate the valley view of Guatemala City, enjoy the heat of the volcanic stones and if the weather allows you to experience the adventure of roasting marshmallows with energy from an active volcano. The Pacaya volcano is still one of Guatemala's active volcanoes.

At the end of our walk we will reach a rocky and arid area where we can see the volcano and lava flows, where we can cook marshmallows. Time to take souvenir photographs.

We will begin our descent and during our journey we will find the Lava Store where you can buy a souvenir made with volcanic material and with your purchase you will be able to support the community.

Please note: For safety reasons, and in compliance with rules issued by the Pacaya National Park, the closest guests can get to the volcano’s crater is approximately 1km, and will only see the crater from afar.

After the visit and explored of the Pacaya Volcano we continue to Kawilal Hot Springs to have time to take lunch ( Included ).

Kawilal is a world of relaxation, where the most important elements of nature are present in this unique place of hot springs, in our environment are mixed fire and heat from Pacaya Volcano who gives us the thermal waters and steams.

This was an excellent trip in every respect. It started with the customer service of the company. I only found the trip on the web, after hours on a Saturday. I wanted to join a tour on Sunday, but the website was already not accepting reservations that close to time of departure. I called the local number, and the woman who answered told me there was space, and kindly suggested that I book the tour and pay online with a Monday reservation, but assured me that they would accept the reservation for Sunday (now about 10 hours from the time of my call).The driver was courteous and picked me up at the appointed time. He had my name and verified it was me. Safe driving all the way.The local guide Lydia was a blast, and did a great job of telling us about interesting plants along the way, as well as information about the volcano. Pacaya was fascinating, got some great photos and video of lava flowing, and roasted a marshmallow in a hole in the ground using geothermal (volcanic) heat.Do know that the hike is strenuous if you aren't acclimated to altitude and in reasonably good shape. You'll be working to get your breath on the way up and pounding your knees on the way down. But fear not, if you need assistance, there are guys who follow your party leading horses, and for an additional Q200 charge (a little over $26) they'll give you a lift. I didn't need it, but the other two in my party did.I wasn't all that excited about the spa, to be honest. I went along because it was part of the package. I was wrong. The "thermal circuit" was just what the doctor ordered after that strenuous hike I just described! The hotel and spa are beautifully designed, and while the downstairs pools were a chaos of families splashing and yelling, the thermal pools are upstairs in a very-peaceful, adults-only section.Bottom line … this tour is worth every dime I paid for it … strong recommendation!

Everything was great, tour guides were great, pick up on drop off were on time, ride was comfortable, Hike was a good difficulty level. short but challenging. scenery was beautiful. and the combo of hike then hot springs was perfect. It was so nice to see the volcano in the view as you enjoyed the thermal spa.Highly recommend if your in the area. Especially if your looking to get away from the busy city for a day.
