Description

Go off the beaten track as you explore the charming villages, UNESCO-listed architecture, and colourful traditions around Antigua on this full-day adventure. Zip around town scoping out famous landmarks, check out a macadamia nut farm, and have a chance to weave your own traditional textiles.

After getting picked up at your Antigua hotel, let your guide show you around town. Check out the Antigua Guatemala Cathedral, whose grand edifice has been rocked by earthquakes and rebuilt several times since its first construction in 1541. Swing by the colonnades of City Hall, zip past the bustling activity at Plaza Mayor and then head out of town to see Ciudad Vieja and the surrounding villages of San Pedro Las Huertas and San Juan del Obispo.

Learn about the health benefits of macadamia nuts at a farm in San San Miguel Dueñas, grab lunch nearby, and then stop by a traditional textile weaving shop where artisans craft colourful fabrics the old-fashioned way. Try your own hand at weaving in the afternoon and then catch a ride back to your hotel with a new souvenir to take home.
