Everyone knows that Guatemala has one of the best coffees in the world (actually the best one) and that these sacred lands are the true home of the creole cacao “the flesh of the Gods”, which was considered as the currency in ancient times and pure medicine for the heart & soul. 

Both products are essential for the Mayan culture, so get ready for a cultural immersion by learning everything about them, from its ancient history, plantation, taking care of, harvesting, grains selection, fermentation, roasting, etc.

The volcano is 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.
