ITINERARY

You will be met at the cruise pier where you will be picked up and transferred to Antigua Guatemala. Here you will meet your guide.

Antigua Guatemala is outstanding and the best-preserved colonial city in Latin America. Antigua Guatemala means "Ancient Guatemala" and was the third capital of the country. Tourists visit Antigua Guatemala every year from around the world to enjoy its natural beauty and historic monuments. The Spanish Colonial style permeates every part of the town: its houses, churches, squares, parks and ruins, also its traditions and folklore as well. Antigua is a city of charm and color where you can see and buy an overwhelming variety of attractive, handmade products that honor the traditions of generations of artisans.It has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We start with a 1.5 hours walking tour to visit La Merced Church that is one of the most important churches in Antigua. Furthermore, we will explore Santa Catalina Arch as it is one of the distinguishable landmarks in Antigua Guatemala. It originally connected the Santa Catalina convent to a school, allowing the cloistered nuns to pass from one building to the other without going out on the street. We will finish passing by Central Park to appreciate the outside of The Cathedral of San Jose and The General Captain Palace. (Time for pictures)

After a soft walking tour of Antigua we will take a transfer to Kawilal Hot Spring that is a world of relaxation, where the most important elements of nature are present in this unique hot springs location. The hot springs complex promotes sustainable tourism in our country, and has 12 thermal pools, Thermal Circuit, 25 Steam Baths, and 3 Hydrotherapy Baths.
