Itinerary & Notes
Hola! Welcome to Guatemala. Your tour will begin with an important welcome meeting at 6 pm, where you will meet your group leader and fellow travellers. Before then, nothing is planned however if you arrive early, spend some time exploring the beautiful river island town of Flores. This tranquil island had a long history before it was colonised by the Spanish in 1697, most significantly as the capital of the Itza people after the fall of Chichen Itza. Use the day to wander the town's cobblestone streets, taking in its pastel-coloured buildings and shopping for local handicrafts. After your important meeting, head down to the lakefront, which starts to hum with street food vendors when the sun goes down, making it a good place to grab a bite and watch the world go by.
