The day begins in Panajachel and the start of our adventure. You drive along ancient roadways that have been used by the Kachekel Maya for centuries. You will view villagers going about their daily life, encounter farmers tending their maize and coffee fields, and see some of the most magnificent scenery in the world. You can visit a sacred Mayan site where rituals are performed by the local shamans, and make your own offering at the alter.
This rugged and remote area has barely been touched by the outside world. Our driving tour takes us 2500 feet above the waters of Lake Atitlan Guatemala for breath taking views and pristine scenery.
