The famous Lava Store with artisans Fernando and David who make jewelry out of petrified lava and coconut shells. This world famous store is dangerously perched at the base of the active Pacaya Volcano in Guatemala. Since the store opened in 2010, it has been "relocated" almost a dozen times due to the volcanic activity and lava flows taking it out. You have to be careful, because the lava rocks around it are on top of a caldera, but the beauty and potential danger of this hike has voted it one of the top 20 best hikes in the world by National Geographic.
