LAVA REPORT


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. info@oxexpeditions.com "Lava Report."

The Real Adventure in Guatemala...

We are a professional ADVENTURE guide operator. This means we are in the business of chaos management and calculated risk. We cannot control our environment, we take you into MOTHER NATURE, she will determine your experience. We have no control over the weather, volcanic eruptions or any other form of chaos, we can only prepare to handle these situations. This is why it is called an ADVENTURE. So please do not sign up for any of our tours if you cannot accept our limitations working with nature. The natural world is tough, this is simply the nature of the business. But if you are ready to truly live, then join us for something amazing. OX
