Which tour site should I use??

by crazybenni Online Now Jun 11, 2007 at 10:39 AM

My brother and I are planning a little trip to visit some cousins that live in Guatemala City. We'll need someplace that starts there. We'd like to go hike up the Pacaya Volcano, but I see conflicting accounts of the hike. One person said it takes 3 hours to hike to the top, another an hour and a half (the one site I reviewed also said 1 1/2 hours). Is it only 1 1/2 to the crater and then you can continue on? We'd like to go a little further (thus get a tour that is a little more adventurous -- we'd like to look down and see the lava!).

So - can anyone tell us which tour group they used, what they liked about it, etc? Thanks!!

    I DUNNO ABOUT TOURS TO PACAYA AS I'VE TRAVELLED UP THE VOLCANO INDEPENDENTLY ON 2 OCCASIONS.

    THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT TAKES TO GET UP THERE DEPENDS ON HOW QUICK YOU'RE MOVING AND HOW FIT YOU ARE BASICALLY. BUT YES IT'S ANYTHING BETWEEN 1 1/2 HOURS TO 3 HOURS UP THERE.

    YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GO UP TO THE CRATER BUT HOWEVER, THERE ARE LIVE LAVA FLOWS WHICH YOU COULD GET CLOSE TO. ENJOY!
