To get to the volcano, visitors can take highway CA-9 toward the south coast and turn left at kilometer 37 toward the municipality of San Vicente Pacaya.  

The Pacaya volcano is 2,500 meters high and is located between the departments of Guatemala and Escuintla. It has been active for over 30 years, spewing out piro-plastic materials, typical of a Strombolian eruption.

This volcano also has a secondary conduit called Pico Mackenney, as well as three other peaks, known locally as Cerro Chino (Chinese Hill), Cerro Grande (Big Hill) and Cerro Chiquito (Little Hill).
