Original departure point
Hotel pick up from Panajachel hotels. Enjoy a 90 minute ride along the Pan American Highway, and travel on the highest point of the highway at 10,000 feet above sea level.
Quetzaltenango is Guatemala's second largest city and is a busy crossroads for industry and the coffee business. Energetic and bustling without feeling intimidating, you will tour the historic downtown on a walking tour. Most of this town was destroyed during the 1902 earthquake and volcanic eruptions. The architecture is more European than colonial and the major buildings are neo-classical in design.
This area is rich with geothermal vents, and most of the electricity is generated with geothermal energy. You will appreciate the hot springs of Fuentes Georginas. A series of outdoor pools offer a variety of temperatures from warm to super hot. Let you stress melt away as the therapeutic waters relax and rejuvenate you.
Enjoy an optional lunch (not included) at the resort restaurant.
On the return drive, stop at an artisan Glass Factory. See the workers blowing glass into beautifully designed art. This hand blown glass is in demand around the world. Highly discounted prices are available at the factory.

I had such a wonderful time. I was the only one in the tour so I was able to relax after a long travels from Japan to Boston and Boston to Guatemala within 48hrs! Best tour guides, make you feel welcomed, went out of their way to make sure I was well taken care of. Don't skip out on this!
