Itinerary

 

 

Day 1 – It’s shuttle time again.  We’ll get out of the city and head to the mountains where we’ll explore the area and have a wonderful lunch at a local favorite.  We’ll also visit Solola, the capital of the lake region.  From Solola, we’ll head down the hill to the lake where our private boat will take us to our hotel.  Dinner will be at our hotel.

Bus: 5 hours. Walking: Moderate

 

 

Day 2 – Now it’s time to decompress.  You will have the opportunity to just sit in the hammock and read all day or you can join us in the village of San Juan.  We’ll visit a local coffee coop where the local growers take their harvests for processing.  July isn’t coffee season, but we’ll be able to learn about how the local farmers produce their crops.  We’ll also eat at a typical local restaurant.  You’ll have plenty of time to wander the local art galleries and weaving coops.  We’ll have dinner in San Juan.

Bus: None.  Walking: Strenuous

Day 3 – We’ll take the boat to Santiago, a typical Mayan village.  Sunday is market day and you’ll be able to use your haggling skills for all sorts of local items.  This is also the day we find Maximon.  Once we’re finished, we’ll head over to San Pedro La Laguna to visit Smokin’ Joe’s BBQ and a look at the town.  You’ll have time to explore the town or head back to the hotel for a siesta.  We’ll have a light dinner at the hotel.
