    Today you will travel through the lowlands into the highlands of Guatemala to visit the Maya site of Iximche. You will meet your friendly and knowledgeable guide at the pier and board your air-conditioned transportation for the guided 2.5 hour drive through the scenic countryside in Guatemala towards the Maya site of Iximche, a late post-classic archaeological site in the western highlands.


    Iximche was the capital of the Kaqchikel Maya from 1470 until 1524 when it was abandoned after the Spanish Conquistadores defeated them. Upon arrival you will tour the site as your guide provides you with relevant information about the structures and the importance of the Mayan Calendar and the so called 2012 "end of the world" phenomenon. You might also be able to witness, from a distance, a real Maya ritual since they are performed regularly on the site and are not part of a tourist attraction. Local Maya Shamans say that Iximche is a site of great universal energy.


    After the tour you will continue to a nearby local restaurant for a much-deserved lunch before heading back to the pier. The meal will be served at Hacienda Real Restaurant and the menu consists of grilled chicken breasts, rice, refried beans, local fresh cheese, local dessert, tortillas and coffee or tea.

    See the highlights of Antigua Guatemala with a “Hop On, Hop Off” bus pass that allows you to linger in favorite attractions before hopping on another bus to a different highlight.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a wonderfully scenic drive through the mountainous inland terrain and on to Antigua Guatemala. The city was the country’s capital until a series of earthquakes forced it to be moved to Guatemala City in the late 1770s.


    Antiqua Guatemala was subsequently rebuilt, and the beautiful architecture that stands today spurred UNESCO to declare it a World Heritage site, as few Latin American cities feature so many intact colonial buildings. Be sure to notice the Italian Renaissance-inspired grid layout of cobblestone streets, another reason for the UNESCO recognition.


    While touring with a complimentary “Hop On, Hop Off” bus pass, you can see the attractions that interest you to most. Architecture buffs might browse the many earthquake-resistant buildings constructed with decorative stucco in the regional barroco antigueño style.


    Religious sites are also abundant with two of the most impressive being the Baroque-style La Merced Church and the 18th-century Convent of Capuchinas. The latter has been thoroughly restored and features a round tower surrounded by the nuns’ sparse quarters.


    Shoppers will find a wide variety of excellent merchandise throughout town, including traditional textiles, eco-friendly house decorations and fine leather goods. A good place to start is the Casa de los Gigantos mall.

    Visit the colonial city of Antigua Guatemala and discover how two of the country’s signature products—exceptional rum and exquisite jade jewelry—are manufactured.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a wonderfully scenic drive through the mountainous inland terrain and on to Antigua Guatemala. The former capital of Guatemala, this UNESCO World Heritage site contains an abundance of beautifully restored colonial architecture that you will see while driving through town to the House of Rum.


    Here in the cellar, you will sample a number of Guatemalan rums, each with its own characteristics. You might try Zacapa 23, a complex blend of variously aged rums, or perhaps Botran Solera 1893, a deep mahogany rum with notes of candied fruits and spices.


    During the tasting, the cellar’s rum connoisseur will explain how the local conditions, especially altitude, influence the rum’s flavor. You will also discover which rums pair best with certain foods, information that you might find useful for the lunch that follows.


    Antigua Guatemala is also known for its exquisite jade jewelry, and you will have the opportunity to observe its production at a local factory. Early civilizations in Mesoamerica prized jade mined in this part of Guatemala, and the stone is still cut and polished using traditional methods similar to those developed thousands of years ago.


    Before returning to the pier, you will have time to shop for jade necklaces, earrings, bangles and even watchbands with jade clasps.

The former capital of Guatemala, this UNESCO World Heritage site contains an abundance of beautifully restored colonial architecture that you will see while driving through town.


    Upon arriving at the Ancient Textiles Museum, you will learn about Guatemala’s cultural heritage of weaving and how the ancient Maya wove naturally dyed cotton. In some of the exhibits, mannequins will be seen wearing historical traditional costumes in a household setting with typical furnishings and even foods, which will add realism and relevance.


    You will have a chance to purchase textiles in the museum gift shop before continuing on to the glorious La Merced Church. While pausing outside the Baroque-style church for photos, take note that the building is rather low and stout to better withstand earthquakes.


    Following lunch at the Porta Del Lagos Hotel, you will proceed to one of the city’s premier jade factories. Early civilizations in Mesoamerica prized jade mined in this part of Guatemala, and the stone is still cut and polished using traditional methods similar to those developed thousands of years ago.
