Pacaya volcano is one of the many (active) located around Antigua, the former capital of Guatemala, and perhaps the most accessible. The last big eruption of Pacaya volcano was in 2010. Until 2016, it was actually possible to see lava from up close during the hike – different tour companies took different routes. During sunset hikes, as soon as it got a bit dark, the volcano could be seen throwing smoke and lava.

* A traveler said: "The tour to Iximche was great! My friend and I were picked up right in front of the hotel by the driver Miguel and driven to Iximche. We went early in the tourism season, so we were actually the only two in the van. When we arrived at Iximche, the guide was already there waiting and there were no other tourists, so we wound up having a private tour of the ruins. Our Maya guide was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and equally fluent in English, Spanish, and his native Maya language. He taught us a lot about his ancestors and culture as we walked through the ruins and then gave us free time to roam. Although the tour says the museum is closed on Monday, we went on a Monday and they told us the museum opened at 9 am. We walked through the museum where they had separate pamphlets in Spanish and English, but all the writing in the museum is solely in Spanish. I can read Spanish fluently, so it wasn’t a problem for me, but if you can’t, it’s still worth going through the museum to see the archaeological finds, which include human bones, Maya clothing, and tools they used. Overall, this tour was well worth the money and I highly recommend it."
