Pacaya is an active complex volcano in Guatemala towering at 8,373 ft (2,552 meters) above sea leave. It lies only 19 miles southwest from the capital city making it a popular touristic destination.

It has been frequently erupting since 1961. Much of its activity is Strombolian, meaning it spews big blobs of lava and hot rocks from its vents. These bursts can reach dozens, if not hundreds, of meters in altitude. As the lava falls and hits the sides of the volcano it streams down its slopes as blazing rivers.

Sometimes Pacaya has Plinian eruptions consisting of massive columns of ash and gases. Once it falls back down, the ash can be beneficial to crops as its mineral rich properties boost the soil's fertility.
