From there, we will go to the home of a local artisan as they explain to us the founding of the village and the local cooperative. We continue the conversation over a cooked lunch, and then try our hand at the ancient technique of basket weaving. Our tour will end with a relaxing hot steam in a traditional Temescal (Mayan sauna) while you breathe in the medicinal herbs to cleanse body, mind, and spirit (bathing suits required).
This tour is run and established by a local NGO that works to rescue, preserve and promote Guatemalan ancestral culture and provide fair-trade employment.
After this rare sneak peek into village life, we will have the afternoon to explore solo or with new friends before hopping back on the boat to our hotel. Meals: breakfast, lunch
