Minimun: 4 people
Starts at 8:00 am

Departing Antigua towards Patzun, a small town along the road where you can admire the colorful güipiles from the region, specially the bright red güipil from Patzun.

Later we continue our way to Iximche, the ancient capital fo 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 small museum.
Iximche was the first capital of Guatemala for three years in the 16th centruy, 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 is not included)
