    You can easily take a tour to Pacaya volcano from Antigua. Hiking up is quite a thrill, and from the top you will be able to enjoy seeing the Pacific Ocean, Guatemala City, Lake Amatitlan.

    Awesome experience. For very cheap, you can climb and camp on top of Volcan Pacaya. It is one of the most active volcanoes in the Western Hemisphere and is very accessible. The summit to the top requires some leg strength but any athletic folk should have no trouble getting near the top. This volcano provide excellent views to the surrounding cities, wildlife surrounding it and molten lava to cook your breakfast/roast your marshmallows! If they are still offering trips to this volcano you should do it! It is worth noting that the area is not the safest so its best to take a guide and travel in groups...

    Description

    a 2.5 hour roundtrip hike goes to the top of this active volcano above the town of Antigua. The trek offers excellent views and a bit of thrill without being exceptionally strenuous, and makes a good day-trip out of the town. Numerous travel agents in Antigua can arrange the trip for you.
