  • Nice looking volcano! I know you can climb this too. But we didn’t do it. You can pretty much take awesome photos with this volcano in the background from every street in Antigua. This actively exploding volcano. That one is just to it’s NW.
  • When we first touched down at the International Airport in Guatemala City in November 1975 all I could see out of my window was the beautiful Volcan de Agua. My first words were, "Is THAT a volcano?"
  • Agua Volcana overlooks the south side of Antigua and can be seen from City of Guatemala. There are several tours that leave from Antigua to explore all the mountains and volcanoes in the area. You can arrange horses as well if you are not up for the physical demands. I would highly recommend the effort. Beautiful views!!
  • Volcán de Fuego currently dominates the news. However, my memories of Volcán de Agua are strong. Wherever you go around Antigua, there it is towering over 12,000 feet in a perfect cone. Earthquakes and eruptions from it wrecked havoc on Antigua in centuries past.
  • One of the most amazing places I’ve ever seen
