Guatemala will quickly steal your heart. The people are so kind and incredible. The culture is beautiful, and Lake Atitlan has incredible healing energy which is WHY I cannot wait to adventure with you here!
This trip will be the perfect balance of relaxation, meditation & journaling, and adventure! If you love being in nature & love exploring and being immersed in other cultures, this is the trip for you!
JAN 21: Transport from Guatemala city to Antigua (check into our gorgeous historic home), welcome dinner.
JAN 22: Explore Antigua with a local guide. After noon private hike to Playa Volcano (easy to moderate). Guatemala is famous for their active volcanos.
JAN 23: Transfer to Lake Atitlan- One of the most beautiful lakes I have ever witnessed. This is a volcanic lake and it's absolutely stunning with gorgeous small villages lining the coast. We will settle into the home and a chef will come and cook us dinner (INCLUDED) as we enjoy the lake and all it has to offer!
JAN 24TH: This will be a lake day. Paddle boarding, swimming, possible hiking. Exploring the nearby village for lunch. We will be focusing on meditation and journaling in the morning and then relaxing most of the day.
JAN 25th: Private boat ride to explore San Juan La Laguna- a little Mayan village where the local women have rescued the ancient techniques to dye their cotton in order to create beautiful and original handmade textiles. We will also explore Santiago Atitlan if time allows.
JAN 26th: Explore the ancient market of CHICHICASTENANGO where textiles, fruit, veggies, and animals are plentiful. Evening portrait sessions will take place at the Villa we are staying at- so bring something beautiful to be photographed in (this is optional but included in the price).
JAN 27th: Relaxing morning by the lake. In the afternoon we will make our way back to Antigua for our last night in a hotel before we return back home the next day (it's a 2.5 hour drive back to Antigua).
