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, and your exploration of its palaces, plazas, ball game, its museum, and its fire ceremonial zone. A place full of history and mysticism.

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 and cross its crystalline waters until the small, picturesque, and charming town of San Juan La Laguna.

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, and take a boat ride to visit the holistic town of San Marcos La Laguna, a small but charming shire where the international community and the local people converge for your immersion in the Mayan sacred fire and your connection with the spirit of the “kakaw” or cocoa also known by the ancient Mayans as the “flesh of the Gods” and consider pure medicine for your heart and soul.

It really is a unique place in all the Mayan lands and one of the most important sacred sites because it shows the remains of the best preserved pre-Hispanic village in Mesoamerica. Allowing you to observe the daily life of the indigenous settlements before the Spanish invasion by showing the remains of a small farm that includes some elements such as a bed, the food storage area, the sauna (or temazcal) and the shaman’s house (or timekeeper – religious leader), who could have been a woman.

Continue your way for lunch at the volcanic Coatepeque Lake (the Hill of Snakes).

This marvelous lake is around 50,000 years old and experienced a fierce period of mega-telluric activity that ended up with a massive explosion and leaving a huge gap of more than 20 kilometers radius and about two kilometers deep, which began a long process capturing rainy and underground waters to become a special lake.
