Know More about this tour

Departing from La Antigua or Guatemala city, we will drive towards San Juan Comalapa.
On market days the area is crowded with people buying and selling fresh products, colorful flowers, woven goods, and all kinds of manufactured items, from clothing to cassette tapes.
Also many rudimentary art galleries are to be found around the main plaza.
We will stop on the way to Iximche for lunch (no included).
Later we continue our way to Iximche, the ancient capital of the Kakchiquel Maya Kingdom.
This site contains the ruins of four large plazas surrounded by 30m high temples. Some of the temples are fully uncovered with original plaster and paint int place while others are still grass-covered.
On site are two large ball courts and a small museum.
Iximche was the first capital of Guatemala for three years in the 16th century, but the capital was moved to a safer place after the indigenous people rebelled against the Spaniards.
If we walk to the back part of this site, you will be lucky to see some Mayan rites taking place.
