Guatemala has 37 officially named volcanoes, three of which that are still active. A hike up the Pacaya Volcano is one of the most popular things to do in the area. There are some things to know before you go.
Shopping at the famous Chichi Market in the city of Chichicastenango (say that fast 3 times) is a colorful treat for the senses.
Traveling to Guatemala was turning out to be quite the adventure. First, there was a painfully steep hike up the active Pacaya volcano where we roasted marshmallows on the fiery lava rock and now we were about to spend a sunny afternoon Sailfishing on a boat in the Pacific Ocean.
