This 500-year-old colonial town is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites. Surrounded by volcanoes, coffee plantations, and steeped in rich Spanish and Mayan history. This city was once the capital of all of Central America, but was mostly destroyed by the violent earthquakes in 1773.

We will learn all about the fascinating history, landmarks, landscape, people and the economy of the country. Prepare to be fully immersed in the 16th century.

Next, we wander through the market and see what shopping is like for a local.  We will explore the labyrinth of stalls and vendors, discuss the exotic fruits and vegetables, try our hand at tortilla-making and sample some traditional Guatemalan sweets.  Save room for lunch though, because we are going to one of our favorite restaurants.

After the tour, you will have the evening free to explore the brightly colored cobblestone streets and the hidden craft shops. Treat yourself to a relaxing spa or try some of their delicious locally made ice cream.

Tour includes a local guide, entrance to the ruins of the main cathedral, freshly made tortillas and local fruit from the market.  Then we sit down for an authentic local lunch. Meals: breakfast, lunch
