Departing Antigua early in the morning to make a brief stop at San Andres Itzapa, known in the area for the controversial wooden figure of San Simon, this wooden figure is housed in a chapel where people gather to give offerings and prayers.
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 in place while others are still grass-covered.
On site are two large ball courts and a small museum.
Iximche was the fist 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.
On the back part of this site, you can see some Mayan rites taking place.

After this tour, we stop on the road for lunch at a restaurant in Tecpan. (Lunch not included)
