Not suitable for climbing due to assaults.If you decide to climb it, take a guide. The city of Antigua is at the foot of the Agua volcano.

Our tour guide explained that this was a volcano which liked to blow off steam regularly. She advised that we could get a good photo with the arch framing the volcano, which we did. Only when we were driving out of Antigua did we see the volcano emitting a plume of black smoke to bid us farewell.
We had neither the time nor the resources to consider climbing the volcano as some people seem to do.

It is fun to be able to say that I slept in the crater of a volcano six years ago yesterday! It took us eleven hours to climb up. We were met with some hot chocolate at the top and then went down to set up camp in the crater for the night. I had on a pair of jeans, t-shirt, sweat shirt, and a heavy coat and still froze to death so DRESS WARM. It took us about 5 1/2 hours to climb down the next day. I was so sore for several days afterwards, but it was totally worth it for a once in a lifetime experience.
