“Hi I’m Dora, together with my husband we’re currently on a mission to travel the world. I want to share with you one of our top travel moments so far. Hiking Volcano Acatenango to watch a nearby volcano erupt through the night was an epic experience and a must do when travelling Guatemala”

“It has long been a dream of ours to glimpse an erupting volcano, so when we heard of hiking Acatenango Volcano; just outside Antigua, we knew we had to go. There is no better place to watch the majestic Volcano de Fuego (Volcano of Fire) erupt! Volcano de Fuego is one of the world’s most consistently erupting volcanoes. However, we were completely unprepared for how utterly epic it was going to be. Hand on heart, this really was one of the most incredible spectacles either of us have ever seen…”

“But what a campsite, the views were out of this world! We’d hiked above the cloud line and along with the altitude it seemed like we were aeroplane level. The sight from Acatenango was magnificent. Volcano de Fuego put on a mighty display. BOOM, a huge plume of smoke and a loud grumble. It is hard to see the vibrancy of the lava during the daylight, but by darkness the red glow of erupting lava was intense. Watching a volcano erupt is like nothing else in the world. A totally unique experience. As the daylight subsided we huddled around the fire, captivated by Fuego erupting time and time again.”
