During our time in Antigua Guatemala we’ve found places and experiences we’re passionate about. These are off-the-beaten path experiences that thinking and open-minded travelers also want to have. No stale pre-packaged group trips for you.
Whether it’s tasting illegal mescal at Café No Se or getting the sheer bolt of thin air at a nearby 7,000-foot highland Maya pueblo, we can arrange to get you there. Antigua Guatemala and its environs are true intoxicants and come in many forms. That even includes a trip to Antigua Guatemala’s authentic main market, clamorously colorful maze-like aisles filled with many fruits and vegetables you likely won’t be able to name.
If your vacation ideal includes a trip to a mystical lake, we can arrange a kayaking trek on Lake Atitlan, led by an expert lake guide. Adventure across the lake, stopping at Maya pueblos where few tourists go, hiking high into the highlands, visiting shrines devoted to a mystic but dark saint, and taking in sunsets that won’t let you go even after you’ve gone home. Lake trips can also be tailored to family experiences.
If your bliss is finding authentic Maya weaving without the confusion and hype of the tourist trap markets, we can set you on the right path to find the textile treasures you seek.
If you find joy in just wandering the cobblestone streets of colonial Antigua Guatemala, we can orient you and let you find the historical features on your own or find you a trustworthy guide.
Or if your agenda includes finding genuine pair of cowboy boots, hand built and sold at rock bottom prices, we can point you toward Pastores Guatemala.
We can show you how to master the art of riding a chicken bus, a.k.a. camioneta, to get to nearby Pastores Guatemala or other real pueblos, untrampled by the tourist masses.
We can help you as you in advance as you plan your trip or provide advice and guidance when you get here. We take no commissions from the places, we recommend, including many of our favorite Antigua Guatemala restaurants and bars. We wouldn’t send anyone to a place we didn’t enjoy ourselves.
But don’t take our word for the experiences that are uniquely Guatemala. Have a look at reviews from our past guests. They are like you; people who wanted and got something different from their vacation experience.
