Description
You will be picked up at your hotel in Guatemala City or Antigua Guatemala and transferred to San Juan Comalapa via Antigua Guatemala. From the city, we will visit the village of San Juan Comalapa, one of the most picturesque village of Guatemala where you can observe several local art galleries.

San Juan Comalapa is sometimes called the "Florence of America" because of the many Kaqchikel painters living there. The town really gained its reputation because of the work of Andres Curuchich who rose to fame for his paintings depicting local village life and whose work has been displayed in galleries as far away as New York.

Upon arrival in the town, we will drive past a colorful cemetery, which has a mural painted by local artists running along its outer wall. The mural depicts major events in the history of Guatemala, including the Maya creation story, the Spanish conquest, and more recently Guatemala's civil war. The mural was painted by a collaboration of local artists.

Local artists display their work in household galleries, and they will open their doors for visitors to see their varied and colorful artwork.

After the visit to Comalapa, we will go on a tour to the archaeological site "Iximche," a city of the post classical period where you can visit the pyramids in honor of the moon and sun and is one of the oldest and most important cities of the Maya.

Aside from being a pre-Columbian Mesoamerican archaeological site in the western highlands of Guatemala, Iximche was also the capital of the Late Postclassic Kaqchikel Maya kingdom from 1470 until its abandonment in 1524. The architecture of the site included a number of pyramid-temples, palaces, and two Mesoamerican ballcourts.

You will have your lunch at the end of your transfer to Antigua Guatemala or Guatemala City.
