Borders and customs formalities check, lunch and your exploration of the magical Copan (UNESCO World Heritage Site) with an outstanding universal value and a mystical aura, that is still somewhat lost, and it’s now being rediscovered.

Considered by many as one of the most spectacular cities of the Maya, it is internationally acclaimed because of the maximum artistic expressions represented on multidimensional stone carving, for the elaboration of unique stelaes, ceremonial altars and more.

Itts main complex consists of the Acropolis and plazas with an impressive stadium opening onto a mound with numerous richly sculptured monoliths, and the Hieroglyphic Stairway Plaza, with a monumental stairway that includes the most extended text in the Mayan world.

Since the sites sit in an unbelievably lush valley, it is easy to spot a variety of local  animals that roam around the ruins, among those are monkeys, guacamayas (large parrots), macaws, sloths, and peccaries, among others.

A privileged Mayan city developed next to the Rio Grande (Big River) or Motagua where the most important stone for the Mayans is located, the jade.

Historically, Quirigua (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) was deeply connected to Copan, and is a marvelous Mayan sacred site and that is definitely a must for the awakened travelers’ with knowledge and passion for the ancient arts.

It is also considered as the home of the biggest ancient monuments of all the Americas, standing out especially its stelas (actually books written in stone telling us the site’s history) in the Mayan world. 

The famous stela E that is almost 11 meters high and the zoomorph P (a supreme carved art piece).

Drive to Rio Dulce (the Sweet River), relax, jump on the water, lunch and continue your way to the Mayan lowlands and lush jungles of El Peten until the natural reserve of El Cerro Cahui (a protected area) located next to the crystal clear waters of Lake Peten Itza.

Day 05The sunrise of the Mayan Biosphere Reserve at the majestic Tikal

So get ready for the unique and rewarding experience of seeing and feeling the Mayan jungle’s dawn from the highest part of Templo IV (or the Bicephalous Serpent).

Tikal is a really strong and energetical site, whose history begins around 2000 years A.C., and today, archaeologists are still working on the site, finding day to day more evidence of our ancient civilization. 

Connect with its mysticism, magic and decipher the greatest mysteries and enigmas of this impressive civilization as you walk through its dense jungle. 

Among its remarkable structures excels the Great Jaguar (or Temple 1), an icon for the Mayas, located in the Central Acropolis, Temple 2 (or the Masks), the Lost World, the Window Palace, and the Temple 4 (or the two-headed serpents) that it’s considered one of the tallest pre-Columbian temples of all the Americas.

Day 06Iximche Mayan sacred site (the Mayan tree of life) and Lake Atitlan with its indigenous communities and Mayan workshops of 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, 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.

Meals: Breakfast and dinner.

Lodging: Luxury Hotel in Lake Atitlan. 

Activities: Iximche visit, boat rides (Lake Atitlan) and San Juan (tour & workshops).

Day 7Paddle Board in the mystical Lake, sacred Mayan fire & kakaw (cacao) ceremony and your goodbye dinner in Antigua

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

Sunrise paddle board 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 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.

Lunch and your boat ride back to Panajachel and your drive to Antigua and because it is your last night in Guatemala, you are going to have the perfect time celebrating life and transformation with a delicious goodbye dinner.
