Guatemala 5 or 6 Day Tour
Day 1: Antigua Guatemala
When you arrive at Guatemala City we'll pick you up from the airport and take you to your hotel in Antigua Guatemala. Depending on your time of arrival you'll have the day free to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site or rest after travelling.
Day 2: Antigua Guatemala
Once you've had breakfast, we'll meet for a 3 hour walking tour around Antigua Guatemala.
We'll visit San Jose's Cathedral, La Merced Church, Central Park or Plaza Mayor, the communal washing area of El Tanque de La Unión and more. You'll have the rest of the day free to stroll around the city, eat, or do as you please!
Day 3: Chichicastenango and Atitlán Lake
After waking up in Antigua Guatemala we'll take the bus or minibus to Chichicastenango, where we'll visit the indigenous market and come across all types of products including traditional clothing, pottery, fabrics, food... will you be tempted to make a purchase?
We'll also go inside Santo Tomás Church, a place of worship that combines Catholicism with the legacy of the Mayan civilization where you'll learn about all of their secrets. You'll have time to eat and then we'll make our way to Panajachel where we'll spend the night by the Atlilán river bank.
Day 4: Lake Atitlán
The fourth day of the tour will begin by taking a boat along Lake Atitlán. We'll reach Santiago Atitlán, where we'll learn about the Mayan ceremonies that once took place here. After spending some free time eating, we'll head back to the hotel in Guatemala City which will take 3 hours.
Day 5: Guatemala City
This will bring the Guatemala 5 day tour to a close, as we head to Guatemala City airport to get your flight.
6 Day Tour and visit to Tikal
There is the option to extend the tour one more day. If so, the itinerary will be different on the first and second days. When you arrive you'll be taken to your hotel in Guatemala City where you'll spend the night.
On the second day, we'll pick you up from your hotel to go to the airport again (estimated to be at 4:30 am, but this will depend on flights). We'll get on a flight to Flores, and when we arrive we'll go by minibus or coach to Tikal National Park. Here, in the middle of the jungle, we'll come across various Mayan pyramids, homes and other archaeological ruins that were important to this civilization.
We'll eat in the Tikal visitor centre and get the plane back to Guatemala City, where we'll travel by car to Antigua Guatemala to spend the night. Days 3, 4, 5 and 6 will be the same as the 5 day tour, starting from the walking tour of Antigua Guatemala.
