One of the best tours you can get outside of Antigua Guatemala. Do you want to do something different outside of Antigua? This is the activity you should take.
The meeting point will be Plaza la Merced, where the pilgrim fountain is located.
We will visit the Antigua market and the bus station (Chicken Buses) their colorful designs and accessories that make them attractive to the eyes of the visitor. We will take a bus and we will transport ourselves to San Antonio Aguascalientes, a beautiful Mayan town where the population is 90% of Kakchiquel origin, women dedicating themselves to weaving and men to agriculture, corn and coffee. Then we take the bus back and stop at the first Capital of Guatemala Ciudad Vieja, destroyed by the Agua volcano in 1541. The first Christian cathedral was built here in 1534 and the foundation of this city is on November 11, 1527 much more older than Antigua Guatemala itself. Then we will take another bus in Ciudad Vieja and return to Antigua Guatemala. A 3 hour tour and you will have a different activity. You will know:
