Antigua Colonial - Lake Atitlan - Chichicastenango Market -Guatemala City.
Start this trip with a flight to Guatemala
City, from where you will be immediately transported to Antigua
. La Antigua was once the third most important Spanish city in the Americas. Its rich colonial heritage (the town is packed with churches, monasteries, and convents), famous Easter celebrations, three surrounding volcanoes, and an abundance of flowers make it a Mecca for tourists. You will then go to Lake Atitlan
, a natural wonder of blue, set against a backdrop of three 10,000-foot volcanoes - Toliman, Atitlan and San Pedro - towering on the southern sky. It is also the home of Indian villages where life and customs have changed little over the centuries. Next you will go to Chichicastenango
, known for having the biggest market in Central America, you will be amazed with the wide variety of things that are sold in this place. This town is surrounded by valleys with mountains serrating the horizons, giving you the feeling of a town isolated in time and space from the rest of Guatemala. Last stop before going back home is Guatemala City
, where you can enjoy the blend of modern sleek glass skyscrapers and colonial architecture.
