About this trip

When arriving at Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City, your Naturally Smart Host will be waiting to greet you as you exit the airport doors. Our first stop, after a quick departure from the City, is the colonial town of Antigua, just a 1-hour drive away (without traffic).

Once settled into Antigua, we'll take a quick siesta and take a tour of the town before enjoying a Bienvenidos Dinner at one of the most celebrated restaurants in town, with an eclectic menu, inventive cocktails, and an outdoor garden to welcome the night.

After a delicious breakfast the following morning, we'll begin our journey further into the Guatemalan Highlands. Along the way, we'll learn about Mayan culture, visit rural communities, and explore the Land of Eternal Spring. Continuing to Lake Atitlan, we'll enjoy cultural excursions throughout one of the most stunning regions of Guatemala.

Finally, our trip will conclude by returning to Antigua for a day of culture and reflection before we celebrate our adventure during our Feliz Viaje dinner.
