Fly to Guatemala City. Hola, and welcome to Guatemala! Arrive at the airport and meet your Tour Leader. Transfer to San Pedro. Arrive at your host family. Eat Dinner. Prepare for your adventure!
Wake up to the magical beauty of Lake Atitlan. Start your day off with 3 or 4 hours of one-on-one Spanish lessons with a phenomenal native teacher. Your lessons will be individually customized to your ability. Afterwards, enjoy lunch with your family and practice your Spanish or even Tz'Tujil (the local Mayan dialect). After lunch you can choose to take a boat ride to Panajachel to do some shopping, play soccer with the locals or relax in this modern day Eden. Before continuing your day with an hour of Conversation Club to enrich your daily Spanish lessons, you may opt to volunteer with Los Ninos de Lago (Children of the lake), to provide educational and social enrichment to the young citizens of San Pedro. Finally, enjoy some free time or participate in daily cultural activities such as salsa dancing, tortilla making, or art lessons.
It's the weekend! Time to explore the lake. Head to San Juan and participate in a Mayan Weaving demonstration. Leave with a handmade scarf...THAT YOU MADE. Visit Santiago. Enjoy this small yoga village. Grab a massage, meditate or even sit in on a yoga class. Awake early and take a hike up La Nez de Indio (Indian Nose) to see the sunrise. Afterwards, stop in a small village for breakfast before you head to Parque Ecologico Chiraxamolo for the most breathtaking Zip-lining experience of your life.
