PRE & POST TRAVEL
Expedition participants are free to organize their own travel before or after the expedition, but they must attend orientation the first day of the expedition and depart from the village the final day of the expedition.
As many people arrive a day early in order to be there for orientation, we have arranged for an OPTIONAL Pacaya Volcano excursion for anyone who is interested. This excursion will begin at 7:30 AM on orientation day. The cost is $35 and will include transportation to and from the Barcelo Hotel, entrance fees, guides, and lunch.
