Pacaya Volcano

Volcán de Pacaya, standing at about 2550 meters in altitude is one of tourists favorite destination.

It is a very accessible volcano, about an hour and a half drive from Guatemala City, and just over an hour hike from the small town of San Francisco de Sales on the slops of the volcano.
The community around the volcano has become increasingly organized, locals guard the trails while others take care of cleaning and maintenance of the infrastructure.
Best times to hike the volcano are very early in the morning when the sun is about to shine. Late hikes can be met with dense fogs that make it very difficult to navigate.
