Then you can enjoy the largest open-air market in Central America. Nowhere else in Guatemala will you find such a wealth of handicrafts, blankets, belts, masks, clay pots, gourds, machetes and locally grown foods at incredibly low prices (use your best bargaining skills!)


The Most Beautiful Lake in the World!!

After you have "shopped til you have dropped" there will be a late afternoon transfer to Panajachel via the village of Solola located 1,700 feet above the most beautiful lake in the world - Lake Atitlan - surrounded by three volcanoes and famous for its spectacular sunsets. The next three nights are spent at the colonial-style Hotel Atitlan.

Day 5 - Monday - Lake Atitlan - (B)

13 multi-coloured Indian settlements are to be found on the lake shore and today you will enjoy a Boat Trip on the Lake to several villages including the picturesque lakeside village of Santiago Atitlan, the ancient capital and religious center of the Tzutuhiles. There will be time to stop and explore before returning to the hotel.

This fascinating tour combines a fabulous Rainforest Spa Resort 
with the magnificent Mayan Temples of Tikal and Relaxing on the Reef on "Temptation Island" Today you will experience one of the main highlights of this tour, a fabulous trip to the magnificent Mayan Temples and Pyramids of Tikal, set in the incredible jungle scenery of the Tikal National Park.

Hidden for 1,000 years in the midst of rainforests teeming with wildlife are enormous ceremonial cities with magnificent Temples and Pyramids built by the mysterious Mayan people. THE TEMPLES OF TIKAL in the Peten region of Guatemala is the most fabulous site of all!

Of the park's 222 square miles only 10 square miles of central Tikal has been mapped and over 3,000 separate buildings have been revealed: temples, shrines, ceremonial platforms, residences, ball courts, terraces, causeways and plazas.

"America, say historians, was peopled by savages; but savages never reared these structures; savages never carved these stones." John Lloyd Stephens, Explorer (1839)

Imagine the colourful ceremonies where human sacrifices were offered to the Gods.
Listen carefully and you will hear the still-beating heart of a dying Civilisation . . .


Day 9 - Friday - Back to Guatemala City or onwards to Belize - (B)

This morning after breakfast you can either fly back to Guatemala City for the end of the tour or to Belize. This is an ideal tour prior to a relaxing stay on one of the idyllic cayes of Belize where you can enjoy superb snorkelling or scuba diving.
