Overview Overview

We start our day early to beat the traffic and stop for a filling breakfast at a restaurant overlooking the valley. Most tours bring you to the ruins of Iximché and let you wander, however, Due South Travels wants you to have a unique and unforgettable experience, which is why we stop in the village of Tecpán and first learn about the history of the town, and the textile industry. When we do visit Iximché, we are met by a community guide - someone who has Mayan heritage and loves to share the history of this very important site with you. Usually we are lucky enough to catch a Mayan spiritual ceremony taking place on the grounds of the ruins.
You are returned to Antigua between 3 and 4pm.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: TECPAN

Tecpán's municipal market takes place every Thursday, and is a great example of the hustle and bustle of market day in the highlands of Guatemala. Here we'll be the only foreigners in town, and we'll see a beautiful example of a colonial church. After, we will explore the authentic textile market where the women come from their villages to shop for their traditional clothing. Our vendors will explain the difference in the creation of the "huipiles", whether they are hand-made, machine-made, embroidered, brocade, and one- or two-sided.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Iximche

We will transport you to the Mayan ruins at Iximché, the first Spanish capital in Guatemala. Here a community guide will bring us through the museum and park-like grounds where you will see remains of the city and perhaps even catch a Mayan spiritual ceremony taking place.

Duration: 2 hours
