Hot and active
The Pacaya volcano is a really interesting place to visit. The ascent is easy and the volcano is active, so there are small eruptions sometimes, leading to rivers of lava. Although ¡it is situated in San Vicente Pacaya, you can go on guided tours from Antigua or from Guatemala City. The views are spectacular climb, with other volcanoes in the surrounding areas and Pacaya coughing up smoke and ash from its crater.
