The time it took us to ascend from the spotlight visitors to the Plateau, was one hour forty-five minutes without Glad we lost the beautiful view of the Laguna Calderas from the viewpoint and not the view of the majestic Volcanoes Water, Fuego and Acatenango. Already in the Plateau, the cone is presented to us in all its glory and we were in awe of such beauty. We could appreciate the rivers of petrified lava and we sat down to admire the smoking cone of the volcano which stay right in front of us.

Bien, ha tomado dos días este asombroso viaje, pero valió la pena, tomamos la carretera al Pacífico, a la altura del km 37.5 cruzamos al desvío a la izquierda que nos  llevó al Municipio de San Vicente Pacaya, Escuintla, luego tomamos la carretera de terracería que nos condujo aproximadamente 4 o 5 Km. más hasta llegar a la aldea San Francisco de Sales, en donde encontramos el Centro de Atención al Visitante. El tiempo que nos tomó ascender desde el centro de atención al visitante a la Meseta, fue de  una hora cuarenta y cinco minutos, sin habernos perdido  la hermosa vista de la Laguna Calderas desde el mirador y ni la vista de los majestuosos Volcanes de Agua, Fuego y Acatenango.
