Discover the colonial history of Antigua Guatemala, immerse yourself in indigenous culture at Chichicastenango Market and surrender to the beauty of Lake Atitlán: experience the best of Guatemala on this four-day tour package!
Guatemala 4 Day Tour Package
Day 1: Guatemala City
On the first day of your tour, we'll pick you up from the airport in Guatemala City and take you to the hotel where you'll spend the next three days. Depending what time your flight arrives, you'll have time to explore the city at your own pace or just relax.
Day 2: Antigua Guatemala
Ready for your adventure? On the morning of day two, you'll be picked up from the hotel and we'll set off on our journey to Antigua Guatemala, which takes around 50 minutes.
Arriving in this picturesque city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the former capital of Guatemala, you'll be enchanted by its vibrantly coloured colonial houses and the volcanoes surrounding it.
We'll visit Parque Central, the main square of Antigua Guatemala and a popular meeting place surrounded by important historic buildings, as well as the Cathedral of San José and the iconic yellow La Merced Church. Of course, we'll also make a stop at the Santa Catalina Arch, one of the most emblematic sights in the city. Do you know what this arch was originally used for?
At the end of our guided tour of Antigua Guatemala, we'll make a stop for you to renew your energy with a delicious meal (not included). We'll then return to Guatemala City where we'll embark on a tour of the current capital's historic centre. Admire the Plaza de la Constitución, home to the Cathedral and the National Palace of Culture, before we head back to the hotel to rest ready for the next day.
Day 3: Chichicastenango & Lake Atitlán
Bright and early, we'll pick you up from your hotel and we'll embark on our journey to Chichicastenango, a town located in the Guatemalan Highlands around two hours and 40 minutes drive away from the capital. A K'iche' Maya cultural centre, Chichicastenango is famous for its traditional market.
We'll visit the lively market, as well as the historic Santo Tomás Church, where you'll see first hand the mix of indigenous religious beliefs and Catholicism left in this region after colonisation. You'll then have time to eat lunch before we hop back onto our bus for the journey to Lake Atitlán, considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. After admiring the spectacular panoramic views of the Tolimán, Atitlán and San Pedro Volcanoes that tower over the sparkling waters, we'll make the return journey to hotels in Guatemala City.
Day 4: Guatemala City
On the final day of our four-day sightseeing tour of Guatemala, we'll drop you back off at Guatemala City Airport with plenty of time so you can catch your flight.
