Itinerary

Your tour will begin with a pick up at your hotel in Antigua Guatemala. We will take the road to the Western Highlands region, home to quaint and colorful mountain villages, highland lakes, pine forests, and the majority of Guatemala’s indigenous people. This is the region most travelers familiar with Guatemala think about when daydreaming of a trip to this beautiful country.

Upon arrival to Panajachel, we will take a public boat to cross Lake Atitlan and visit Santiago Atitlan, where you’ll learn about local Saint "Maximon." Enjoy the vibrant colors and local flavor of this village.

Santiago is the most popular lakeside settlement outside Panajachel, and many atitecos (as its people are known) cling to a traditional Tz’utujil Mayan lifestyle. Women weave and wear huipiles (tunics) embroidered with brilliantly colored feathers and flowers, and the cofradías town’s maintain the ceremonies and rituals of tradition, the syncretic traditions and practices of Mayan Catholicism. There’s a large art and crafts scene here as well. Back to Panajachel.

In Panajachel you will enjoy a delicious lunch (NOT INCLUDED)

Explore the village of Panajachel, a pre-Columbian town of Kakchiquel origin, settled next to the river with the same name and on the lakeside of Atitlán. The town witnessed the final battle between Spaniards and their Kakchiquel allies against the Tzujiles and it also was a settlement point for the Franciscan missionaries who founded a convent nearby.

In the afternoon, you’ll be returned to Antigua Guatemala.
