VOLCANOES &

Hot Springs

Nearly everywhere you will travel in Guatemala, you will be surrounded by one of the region’s majestic mountains or countless volcanoes. In fact, Guatemala hosts the most number of volcanoes in all of its territory, with 37 in total, three of which (Pacaya, Fuego, and Santiaguito) are active. Guatemala is home to the top two tallest peaks within all of Central America, both of which, Tacaná and Tajumulco, are volcanoes. The country’s natural beauty is due to its location along the ring of fire. Guatemala is right in the middle of all of the world’s action with 3 tectonic plates continually bumping into one another. This continual movement over centuries of time is actually creating the country’s landmasses (all of the mountains and volcanoes). An added benefit to the all of the geothermal activity is the natural hot springs found throughout the area. Several natural hot springs within the country have been exploited to utilize the countless benefits of the therapeutic thermal water. 

Join us for an experience of a lifetime! Take a horseback riding tour of Pacaya, camp atop Acatenango for an unforgettable sunset over Fuego Volcano, or melt your troubles away in the therapeutic thermal waters. Contact us for the tour of a lifetime.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS SMALL IN SIZE (108,888 SQ MILES) THERE ARE 37 VOLCANOES THAT SPAN ACROSS GUATEMALA

 

Climb Pacaya

The Pacaya National Park is part of the Central American Volcanic Arc located in the Escuintla Department; 19 miles southwest of Guatemala City and near the city of Antigua. Although active, may visitors are able to enjoy the wonders of this volcano. Horseback or hiking, Pacaya is visited daily by individuals willing to get a close up view of the lava field surrounding it. While you will likely not see any molten lava, you can watch eruptions from the main caldera while you enjoy roasted marshmallows over the hot vent openings just below the crater’s base.

Being in the Ring of Fire, with more than 37 volcanoes, Guatemala has an amazing geography. Three of its impressive volcanoes are currently active. Pacaya is one of the active volcanoes in Guatemala and is safe to climb. The experience of climbing Pacaya will definitely be an unforgettable one.
