Pacaya Volcano

Active nearly every day.

Pacaya Volcano is over 2,500 metres above sea level, but this isn't its most distinguishing feature: the unusual thing about it, which makes for an unbeatable visit, is that this is an active volcano that you can still climb to the top of. Pacaya shows constant signs of activity, nearly every day, which can be seen with the naked eye; in fact, you'll get so close to the remains of lava flows that you can almost touch them. Obviously, the volcano is closed during especially active periods, more or less once a year. The climb to the summit, passing by walls of solid lava, won't take more than two hours and you can even take the whole family with the help of a specialist guide. Its appeal is not just about what's bubbling away below: the views from the top are truly spectacular, especially at sunset.
