The volcano that we climbed up was called the Pacaya volcano. The Pacaya volcano is an active volcano, that is one hour away from Antigua. The walk to the volcano was one hour and a half. You could get a horse up and down, but we didn’t. I found the walk pretty easy because I’ve done Machu Picchu and Colca Canyon.
Once we got up so we could see the volcano we stayed there for a while. We toasted lots of marshmallows in some holes in the lava field. We saw some lava come down from the volcano sometimes and lots of smoke coming out the top. I liked the walk and recommend going there if you’re going to Guatemala.
Fact: Guatemala has thirty-six volcanoes.
