Day 2The Pacaya active volcano; also known as the torch of the Americas and your lava encounters.

Typical breakfast and your transfer to the pacific coast until the Pacaya Volcano and Calderas Lagoon national park, so get ready for nature and adventure by hiking its interpretive trails of massive, rugged dried lava fields, magma stones, and steaming boilers (scorching). The volcano is surrounded by magnificent and breathtaking views of the Agua, Fuego & Acatenango volcanoes.

This hike is the least challenging volcano hike, but that doesn’t mean that’s easy. It’s perfect for a group of travelers and families in search of a hot adventure.

Connect with this impressive volcano’s energy, and if we are lucky enough,  the Pacaya and Acatenango (both active volcanoes) will set up a lava show for you! Because just recently, Pacaya has become more active again.

Day 03Iximche Mayan sacred site (the Mayan tree of life) and Atitlan Lake with its indigenous communities and Mayan workshops of San Juan La Laguna.

Morning typical breakfast and the beginning of your journey through the Mayan highlands, most known as the sectors of the indigenous Mayan culture alive. Areas surrounded by beautiful landscapes of mountains, volcanoes, indigenous communities, and all kinds of crops until Iximche (Ixim = Corn & Chee = Tree).

A very important and energetic sacred site where the ancient Mayans founded their last capital, exploration of its palaces, plazas, ball game, its museum, and its fire ceremonial zone.

Later on, continue your way to the town of Panajachel, located on the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, Atitlan, and the place where you are going to take a boat ride to cross its crystalline waters until the small, picturesque, and charming town of San Juan La Laguna.

Lunch and a cultural afternoon of ancestral knowledge by visiting and learning from their community social projects, focused on preserving alternative and natural medicine, primitivist painting, natural dyeing, and beekeeping.

Aldous Huxley described Atitlan as “too much of a good thing, it touches the limit of the permissibly picturesque”

Early breakfast followed by paddle board and kayaking on the Lake’s crystalline and calm waters surrounded by its majestic 03 volcanoes (San Pedro, Atitlan, and Toliman).

Experience the day-to-day life of the Lake inhabitants, standing out among them their multiple farmers and fishers, followed by a free morning in your unique surroundings, for you to keep exploring the magic of the powerful lake and its indigenous communities.  

Lunch, and your boat ride to visit the holistic town of San Marcos La Laguna, and small but charming shire where the international community and the local people converge (and by the way; don’t forget your swimsuit, because in this place you are going to find the best beaches to swim in the Lake).

So get ready for a special afternoon in this magical town, having the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Mayan sacred fire and to connect with the spirit of the “kakaw” or cocoa also know for the ancient Mayans as the “flesh of the Gods” and consider medicine for your heart and soul.

Followed by the healing experience of the Mayan sauna or Temazcal (the house of hot stones), whose ancestral purpose is therapeutic. Seeking relaxation and detoxification of your body and calm for your mind until finding inner peace.
