Climbing Volcán Pacaya

pacaya climb

Rising 2552 meters, Volcán Pacaya is the nearest active volcano to Antigua and makes for a challenging and exciting climb.  Once at the top it’s possible to get within feet of glowing rivers of lava.  Not to mention, the view of the three other volcanoes in the distance is outstanding. 

These guys brought their baby along for the climb.








And here’s Carlos roasting marshmallows over the lava.
