Your Itinerary

DAY 01Welcome to Guatemala (Heart of the Mayan world) and Antigua transfer.

Welcome by your team at the Aurora International Airport (GUA) and transportation to the cosmopolitan and colonial City of La Antigua Guatemala (UNESCO World Heritage Site), a “pueblo magico” full of charm and probably the most visited one in the country. 

Free and easy time to explore your colonial surroundings (try to arrive before midday to enjoy the sunset in Antigua with tea, coffee, or drinks), begin to connect with the local people and international community, and prepare yourself for your upcoming adventure travel in Guatemala.  

Meals: Wellcome dinner. 

Lodging: Boutique Hotel in Antigua.

Activities: Welcome transfer and sightseeing.

DAY 02Acatenango volcano overnight! Prepare yourself for a truly adventure with astonishing views and countless lava eruptions.

Today is your visit to the famous Acatenango volcano, and you are going to make things properly by experiencing a sunset, a sunrise, and sleeping under the stars next to the acclaimed and active Volcan de Fuego (Fire volcano). 

So, don’t forget to pack your hiking clothes (a warm sweater, layer, fleece, rain jacket / windbreaker, and quick-drying leggings), a good pair of trainers, a hat, and sunscreen. The temperature and weather of Acatenango vary significantly from around 20+ degrees Celsius (68+ Fahrenheit) during the day as you hike up and get down to below 0 Celsius (32F) at night.

Start your adventure in the morning with your transportation to the massive volcanoes complex, for the beginning of your challenging and elevating hike, around 6 hours and until 4,000 above the Pacific coastal plain.

Walk your way up the volcano and be able to notice the change in climates and ecosystems upwards by crossing hot cornfields and other ones infused with cloud forests, then a humid tropical setting, and the closer you get to the basecamp, the more volcanic ash and rubble with a cold environment and genuinely breathtaking panoramic views.   

Water, snacks and tropical fruits on the way and until your ascension to the summit. 

At the basecamp, rest and relax for the remainder of the day, or if you wish and you feel in condition to do so, we can continue with the path a little more (one hour) and get as close as possible to the Fuego volcano followed up by a  one-of-a-kind sunset before your hot and well deserved dinner. 

The reward and the most epic part of this adventure camping experience is watching Fuego Volcano erupting lava with several colossal “bangs” next to you during the night (perfect for that photo moment). 

Honestly, it’s just breathtaking, speechless, and healing. 

Meals: All.

Lodging: Camping at the base camp.  

Activities: 4×4 adventures, hiking, history telling, volcano eruptions, stargazing and camping.

DAY 03The black sand beaches of El Paredon.

Early wake up before dawn, for even more breathtaking views, because it is during the morning when the skies are clearest.

Breakfast back at the campsite, and the beginning of your descent (approx 4-5 hours) followed by your drive to the Pacific Coast, until El Paredon. 

Free and easy time for you to explore your unique surroundings, rest, get in the sea, soak up some sun and have a delicious dinner to recover from the past day. 

Seafood dinner at your campsite next to a bonfire and the black sand beaches of the Pacific coast. 

Meals: All.

Lodging: Glamping (Kuautemayan base camp).

Activities: 4×4 adventures, hiking, free and easy time, bonfire and glamping.

DAY 04Kayaks, mangroves, wildlife and 4x4 adventures.

Early wake up with a fresh local breakfast followed by the beginning of your mangrove swamp adventure deep into the untouched nature full of dense canals and local wildlife. 

Lunch back at the beach and your drive to the Pacaya Volcano and Calderas Lagoon national park for some 4×4 adventures through the petrified lava until your next campsite.

Free and easy time to explore your natural surroundings full of massive and rugged dried lava fields, magma stones, and steaming boilers (scorching).

A bonfire and a sky filled with stars are going to be your companions for this last evening through the volcanoes of Guatemala and the ring of fire. 

Meals: All.

Lodging: Glamping (Kuautemayan base camp).

Activities: Mangroves adventures, drive to Pacaya and 4×4 adventures, free and easy time, bonfire, stargazing and glamping.

DAY 05The Pacaya active volcano; also known as the torch of the Americas.

So get ready for nature and adventure by hiking its interpretive trails surrounded by   magnificent and breathtaking views of the Agua, Fuego & Acatenango volcanoes.

This hike is the least challenging volcano hike, but that doesn’t mean that’s easy. It’s perfect for a group of travelers and families in search of a hot adventure.

Connect with this impressive volcano’s energy, and if we are lucky enough,  the Pacaya and Acatenango (both active volcanoes) will set up a lava show for you! Because just recently, Pacaya has become more active again. 

Drive to Antigua Guatemala for your walking tour on its famous cobblestone streets, visiting its central plaza, cathedral, jade stores (the sacred stone of the Mayans), its fantastic handicraft markets, and much more. 

Visit a local cafe and try probably one of the best coffees you have ever tried, take photos of Antigua´s unique stores, and the Calle del Arco (Arch street), El Mirador El Cerro de la Cruz (with a fantastic panoramic view of the city) and because it is your last night in Guatemala, you are going to have the perfect time celebrating life and transformation with a delicious goodbye dinner.
