  • Today, you will have a half-day walking tour of beautiful colonial Antigua to get your bearings and visit the many pretty squares and churches.

  • This is a free day to explore Antigua at your leisure; perhaps go on a chocolate-making tour, visit a coffee plantation, or try a volcano hike.

  • Drive from Antigua through spectacular scenery and traditional villages until you reach Quetzaltenango, in the heart of the highlands. You will also visit Chichicastenango market en route.

  • This morning, you will be transferred to Lake Atitlán via a colourful indigenous market — gain a fascinating insight into community life as locals barter for their weekly shop.
