After breakfast, meet your guide and enjoy a family-friendly walking tour of Antigua. You will visit breath taking colonial monuments and find out why this city was the bustling center of the region for the Spaniards. Discover the secrets of Antigua’s traditional history and art. Admire the colonial architecture of the XVI century churches, buildings, fine arts, terra-cotta ceramics, wooden sculptures and a great variety of traditional weavings. Kids love exploring the catacombs and ancient ruins, run through the central park and be sure to throw a coin over your shoulder into the fountain!
After the morning walking tour, your driver will transfer you to Lake Atitlan (get ready for a curvy road!). A lunch (not included) stop can be made at a local restaurant – we love Hacieda Real for its amazing steaks, farm animals and kids’ play area. Arrive at Lake Atitlan and take in the expansive views. With three stunning volcanoes rising above its emerald surface, Lake Atitlan is characterized by its natural beauty surrounded by gorgeous views of the volcanoes and traditional indigenous Maya villages. The famous writer Aldous Huxley considered it “the most beautiful lake in the world.” Hotel Atitlan is set on the shores of the lake, facing the volcanoes and offers extensive gardens to explore. This family-friendly hotel has a lakeside swimming pool, kid-friendly dining and acres of gardens to run and play in.
