lava and volcano report guatemala
volcanic activity report guatemala


Guatemala is home to three active volcanoes. Active status means they are still growing and that a hot magma chamber still exists below the Earth's crust which fuels the growth of these young mountains. There are still a lot of travel agencies trying to convince the world that lava is currently flowing on Volcan Pacaya and you can simply poke it with a stick, this is false propaganda. We wish! But the truth is no lava has flowed since the last major eruption on May 27th, 2010. If this changes, we will be the first to update our site and our social media pages. O.X. consistently goes to both Fuego and Pacaya volcanoes (Santiguito only by special request). Volcan Fuego had a major eruption on February 7th, 2015 that covered Antigua in volcanic ash and shut down the Guatemala City international airport. The Fuego volcano remains one of the most active in the world. For more up to date detailed information, please contact our office and ask our Head Guide for the latest. "Lava Report."
