We begin this tour traveling to Lake Atitlan, where we step into the “Land of the Living Maya”, and experience the wonder of its natural beauty and the friendliness of its native peoples who have proudly maintained their colorful dress and customs in the face of modern global culture. En-route to Atitlan, we visit the pre-Columbian ruins of the Kaqchikel Mayans, one of the two Mayan peoples who still populate Atitlan. At Atitlan, we meet indigenous artists who paint in the style of Arte Naif, weavers who dye their own thread from plants grown around the Lake, and healers who cure with traditional faith-healing rituals and medicinal plants.

Our stay at Atitlan extends from our lodging in the lakeside resort community of Panajachel to other Mayan communities around the Lake’s rim, mostly by boat. From Lake Atitlan, we travel to Chichicastenango, a town which boasts the largest outdoor artisan open market in Central America. We also visit Antigua, the Spanish colonial city that reigned as capitol of all of Central America—for 240 years before U.S. independence! Antigua bustles with a rich mixture of cultures and is full of museums, shops, and striking examples of Spanish colonial architecture.
