About
Our group meets at Old Town Outfitters Shop in Antigua at 14:00hrs – where drinking water, bathroom facilities and retail outdoor equipment are available for hikers. Our drive to the trailhead is just over 1-hour in private transport from Antigua to the Park Office. As our group moves up one of the myriad of trails on the mountain, your Old Town guide will direct the group toward active surface or sub-surface lava flows near the summit. He will then decide where to make camp for the evening, and arrange the group’s campsite close to one of Pacaya’s many beautiful vistas. A freshly prepared dinner will be readied for the group. Hot coffee and tea will keep your group warm after sundown, and after a good night’s rest in tents and bags views of surrounding highland volcanoes Agua, Fuego and Acatenango will greet campers at first light. After breakfast our group will break camp and have a relaxed descent of Pacaya’s slopes as we move down to the trailhead.

OTO led an incredible climb on the Acatenango Vocano with a sunset summit at the same time Fuego Volcano erupted! Our Guide Lucas kept a good pace with encouragement, a big smile and helpful advice. We were lucky to have OTO’s head man Matt join us with additional insights and cheer. Great Basecamp set up and excellent food. Highly recommend them.

We booked a 9 day personalized itinerary with Old Town Outfitters. Everything from the Pacaya Volcano Overnight trip, Walking tour of Antigua, Kayaking Lake Atitlan, and climbing the temples and pyramids of TIkal.

Everyone from the guides, the drivers, and the office staff took such great care of us. I would highly recommend this tour outiftter.

They employ local guides who are extremely knowledgeable of the area and we learned so much! We felt it really paid off to have local guides who could speak the language fluently.

Thank you for an amazing trip! We hope to be back to visit soon!

The tour was very poorly and unsafely executed.

Our group consisted of myself, my girlfriend, another random person, 3 porters and a guide.

The safety issues began with the guide not properly equipping us for the hike. Although he felt he deserved two hiking poles for himself, each of us only received one pole. The pole the random person in our trip received was broken and could not be extended. I gave him my pole because he was already have a lot of difficulty with the hike because he was told his tennis shoes would be fine to hike in. They were not. So I had to buy some walking sticks along the way from a random local.

Our guide going up was too out of shape to keep up with our group. We left him behind and went with our porter to base camp so we really didn't see our guide the first day for almost the entire hike until we got to base camp.

When we got to camp, the guide, seemingly worried about his fitness for the remainder of the hike, tried to convince us that it is not worth going to the top of the mountain because it might be cloudy. We affirmed we wanted to go to the top, so he said the porter would take us up so that he could stay back so 'breakfast would be ready' when we got back down and so we could beat the rush of people back to the bottom.

I can't emphasize enough that our guide did not guide us to the summit.

The porter took us up to the summit the next morning. When we got back down to the bottom, the guide hadn't even started breakfast (a bit mind blowing because it was yogurt, strawberry and granola), not had he packed up anything to prepare to leave.

On the way back down, our guide was apparently a brand new man. He left our group routinely for periods longer than 15 minutes at a time. He was able to get down so fast because my girlfriend and the other person in our group were really struggling on the steep decline on the way down. The guide even said the night before that most injuries occur on the way down. Yet, our guide left us all except to wait for us every 15 or so minutes and then leave us behind again. I had to help the other two people in our tour get down the mountain.

Our guide was unfit and unsafe. I give my two stars for el fuego itself. You get the same view regardless of who you go with, but I would go with another group where the guides are fit, they equip their hikers, and they assist hikers who are struggling.
