Guatemala has so much to see and offer. One thing that you must experience while in Guatemala is hiking on an active volcano. Volcán Pacaya is one of the highest rates of volcanic activity in the world, but don’t expect to see a massive eruption. The strombolian eruptions and ash eruptions are mild. Pacaya is a popular hiking destination because the hike isn’t too strenuous and you’re rewarded with great views at the top. On the way you have various rest stops and fruit stands, stop off at gas vents to toast some marshmallows. Have you ever skied? Volcano Skiing is a whole new experience. On the way down you slide through lava rubble and ashes. The lava rock has healing properties. It grounds you and help you release emotional attachments because of its raw energy.
