Our Founder, Brenda Elwell is at it again. This time, she has created a wonderful trip for Single Parents to Guatemala. This specially priced and custom designed 8-day tour with Maxim Tours will include visits to Antigua, Lake Atitlan, San Juan, Lake Peten Itza and much more.
Immerse yourself in Mayan culture. Experience everyday life in traditional Mayan markets, towns and ceremonies with a backdrop of pristine lakes and mountains.
World renown for its colonial beauty, Antigua has its own personality…tourists learning Spanish, locals selling crafts, monumental and picturesque ruins of churches and monasteries remain from the last earthquake. There are good restaurants, art galleries, bars, a theater and library. It is multicultural, multilingual, and still a real place. Northern Guatemala stretches between Mexico and Belize for the most part covered by a jungle rich in wildlife – and the ruins of the great Classic Maya cities. Tikal is the most famous, but there are several sites worth visiting to learn different aspects of the Maya culture that was so advanced.
Surely one of the world’s most beautiful lakes, Lago Atitlán is framed by volcanoes and surrounded by 12 villages. Local inhabitants, Tzutuhil or Cakchiquel Maya, fish from dugout canoes, cut reeds to make mats, farm, tend coffee farms, make ceramics and weave.
