- Immersion in an ancient Mayan ceremony
- A part of Mayan tradition for centuries
- Breathtaking panoramas from high above Lake Atitlan
A mystical Guatemala gift experience, introducing you to the history and culture of the Mayan people, and transporting you with an ancient fire cleansing and protection ceremony. Mayan civilization is one of the world’s oldest, taking over much of Central and South America from around 2000 BC. It is responsible for many immense temples, cities and pyramids across the continent, and in Guatemala, where 40% of the population are Mayan, it remains a thriving culture - you’ll often see people on the streets wearing woven clothing - but did you know the patterns are individual to their home villages, so it’s possible to pinpoint exactly where someone comes from by what they’re wearing?
Your tour to these Sacred Caves brings you to 1200ft above Lake Atitlan. As you stand on Eagle Rock, you’ll see the land dropping away beneath you, making you feel like an eagle about to take flight. The views from the caves of the lake and caldera far below are simply mesmerising. Highland tribes often travel for many hours to take part in this fascinating ceremony, and you will be there to witness and take part, as you learn about the Mayan calendar and the significance of certain dates, feeling the energy and raw power of these caves.
