Guatemala

Mar 23 - Apr 6 2015

Over the course of the holiday, this cobblestone town of pastel-hued houses and crumbling ruins and numerous Churches and Cathedrals becomes a backdrop for incense-infused religious processions, elaborate holy vigils, and exquisite street carpets made of sawdust, pine needles, and flowers.

Monterrico

1

March 24th to March 26th

We arrive in Guatemala City and will be greeted by our driver and transferred to the beautiful black lava beaches of Monterrico on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala. Here we stay in a lakeside resort with private bungalows, a pool, and all the amenities to relax and adjust to your arrival in one of the most beautiful countries in Central America. We will have an early night as we are going to wake up at the crack of dawn.

Panajachel

2

March 27th to March 29th

Panajachel, an old hippy hang out from the 60’s and 70’s, is now Lake Atitlán’s main hub, though a visit to some of the lake’s other villages is a must. Lake Atitlán is one of Guatemala’s main attractions — a highland lake formed from a volcanic eruption some 84,000 years ago, it’s surrounded by three giant volcanoes, myriad indigenous villages, and rugged swaths of rock and wilderness.

San Pedro

3

March 30th to March 31st

Drawing, painting, and photography session are planned as we explore the streets of San Pedro, strolling thorough the street market and the upper village, and ending up in the lower lakefront portion of the town for lunch and a stroll along the waterfront businesses and cafes.

Antigua

4

April 1st to April 6th

Antigua is believed to be the most outstanding and best preserved colonial city in Spanish Americas. The spanish Colonial style permeates every aspect of the town; its houses, churches, squares, parks, and ruins. For those interested, an optional tour is available for an evening hike of the Volcano, including dinner cooked on the Volcanic Lava.
