Pacaya

Description

Another active complex volcano in Guatemala, Pacaya, first erupted about 23,000 years ago and has erupted at least 22 times since the Spanish conquest of Guatemala. Rising to an elevation of 2,552 meters (8,372 ft), much of its activity is Strombolian, but occasional Plinian eruptions also occur, sometimes showering the nearby Departments area with ash. Quite a popular tourist attraction, Pacaya, which sits inside the Escuintla Department, lies 30 kilometers (19 miles) southwest of Guatemala City and close to Antigua.
