    Engaging Antigua and Atitlan

    Taking time to go deep into Guatemala's arts and natural beauty

    Settle into the stunning environments of two specially-chosen small hotels in Guatemala's most precious locales -- Antigua and Lake Atitlan.  JOURNEYS provides the building blocks for your personally-tailored experience. We give you the background information, orientation, guides, and logistical support to allow you to follow your own interests at your own pace.  You may choose to focus on the markets and textiles, including visits with artisans. You may go deep into the history, traditions, archaeology, and current story of the Maya. You may choose to hike forest trails or climb a volcano. Note the bird, animal, and plant life. Take time for photography, sketching, painting, or writing. 

    You may purposely time your trip during a week that is quiet, when there's little likelihood of many other tourists. Or, schedule on dates that include some of the western hemisphere's most extravagant festivals, most notably the floral carpets and processions of Semana Santa (Holy Week, leading up to Easter) and the kite-flying extravaganzas for Dia de Los Santos Difuntos (Day of the Dead, late Oct/early November.)  The beauty of this plan is that it places the best of Guatemala in your own hands.
