Day 2 - Walking Tour and Coffee Farm visit
Today we’ll meet our guide at breakfast for an introduction to Guatemala and the tour, followed by a walking tour of Antigua Guatemala and some free time to explore and lunch. In the afternoon, we’ll have a very special visit to a small local coffee farm. The farmer will tell us all about coffee farming, see the farms on the side of a volcano and make our traditional coffee.
Day 3 - Archeological Day
Drive to Lake Atitlan, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. En route, our guide will take us on a tour of Iximche, a ruined Mayan city, and teach us about how life was here for the Mayan families that founded it in the 1400s. Arrive in Panajachel on Lake Atitlan for an orientation with your guide and some free time to wander and have lunch.
Day 4 - Lake Towns Tour
Tour lake Atitlán by boat and learn about the culture and lifestyle of the Mayan village here. First, visit Santiago Atitlan, the home of the Mayan God Maximon, where we will visit one of his shrines. The second town is San Juan Atitlan, filled with music, color, and traditional industries such as coffee farming, beekeeping, weaving, craft work, chocolate producers, and more.
Day 5 - Enjoy Nature and Traditional Cuisine
After breakfast, we will start our trip back to Antigua. In the morning, we will visit Lake Atitlan Nature Reserve to walk in the native forest and see the local flora and fauna at the lake and the butterfly sanctuary. For lunch, we are visiting a local family home where we will learn how to cook a local dish for our late lunch.This evening why not join us for an optional excursion out of Antigua for a dinner, tour of a famous local micro brewery, sample their beers and watch the sunset behind the most active volcano in Central America. This is a local favorite hangout
Day 6 - Adventure but not Without Relaxation
Today we’ll drive to the city on the scenic route, stopping for photos as we pass some spectacular views. It will be a fun day filled with some great experiences. We will take an easy to moderate morning hike on an active volcano, and hopefully, our guide will be able to show us some lava where we can toast marshmallows!! At lunchtime, we will freshen up with a visit to the thermal baths, pool circuits, and ice-cold smoothies for a truly unique experience.
Day 7 - The Amazing Mayan City: TIKAL
Today we will fly 45 minutes to the northern jungles of Guatemala Peten to live an unforgettable experience. We will take a guided tour of the famous lost city, Tikal. This amazing place is filled with enormous Mayan pyramids, walkways, exotic wildlife, colorful birds, beautiful plants, and mystery. A real tour highlight!
Day 8 - Flores Island, A Boho Chic Place
We have this morning free to see Flores island. I recommend getting up early to enjoy the sunrise and exploring the island for pictures and a peaceful morning coffee. We will fly back to the city and direct to our hotel, where we will give a toast after an incredible tour!
