Pacaya Volcano: Day 6 in Guatemala

August 12, 2016

Today was a free day for Team Gould here in Guatemala! We woke up early and hiked Pacaya, a volcano located 2 hours from Antigua. We saw some incredible views. Some horses and dogs tagged along with us on our adventure to the top. We were able to roast marshmallows in spots where the heat from the lava underground filtered through to the surface.  A shop close to the top sold items that incorporated the lava. The sale of these items supported the Mayan people and their heritage. Take a look at the photos below to get a sense of what an amazing adventure today was!

Tomorrow we will be heading to a waterpark with the top 2 students from each grade to help them enjoy time away from their everyday lives!
