Colonial Village

Antigua Guatemala

The city managed to recover and today you can walk its cobble streets and discover all its charms. You can do activities such as visit impressive ruins, craft markets, nightlife, viewpoints, all kinds of restaurants, cozy hotels and terraces.

Nature

Semuc Champey

If there is a paradise it must be something very similar to Semuc Champey, whose meaning in the native language is “Where the river hides under the rocks”. This natural monument is also an icon of Guatemala and is located in the department of Alta Verapaz.

Why is it so special? It is a natural bridge of 300m of karst rock over the Cahabón River. On top of it, there are several natural pools with different depths and its particular turquoise color provokes an interesting natural mystique. Do not miss the opportunity to take a picture from the viewpoint 700m above the bridge.

Market day

If you love crafts and shopping, this is a destination for you. The craft market of Chichicastenango is a colorful place where you can find the best crafts in Guatemala. Do not miss the opportunity to buy a nice souvenir and do not forget to bargain, it is part of the local culture.

The Mayan culture is alive and you can appreciate it here. People proudly wear their traditional regional costumes and practice their ancestral traditions every day. In the church of Santo Tomás, you can witness the religious syncretism that mixes Mayan and Catholic spirituality.
