Today's trip combines Spanish Colonial and Mayan influence, and you'll visit sites that will immerse you in the area’s enthralling history. Learn from watching the indigenous people that still visit Iximché, and if we are very lucky, we will witness a real Mayan ceremony that takes place in Iximché.
We will begin the day with a transfer from your hotel in Guatemala City or Antigua Guatemala, to the archaeological site of Iximché. Upon arrival we will take a guided visit to Iximché: the first capital of Guatemala.
We will then transfer to the colonial city of Antigua Guatemala, where we will enjoy lunch at a restaurant in the city.
