Description

Your tour will begin with a pick up at your hotel in Antigua at approximately 7:30 a.m. We will then make our way to the Western Highlands region, home to quaint and colorful mountain villages, highland lakes, pine forests, and 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 across Lake Atitlan and visit Santiago, Atitlan, where you'll learn of the local saint Maximon and enjoy the vibrant colors and local flavor of the 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 birds and flowers, and the cofradías towns maintain their traditional ceremonies and rituals, their syncretic traditions, and their practices of Mayan Catholicism. There's a large art and crafts scene here as well.

From Santiago, we will go back to Panajachel, where you will be given time to eat your lunch (not included) and explore.

You will then 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 Atitlan. The town witnessed the final battle between Spaniards and their Kakchiquel allies against the Tzujiles and was also a settlement point for the Franciscan missionaries who founded a convent nearby.
