Explore Guatemala With Us!

Following the wedding, we'll be taking the rest of the week to travel the country!  We'll start by touring the ancient Mayan ruins of Tikal, and wrap the trip up with a relaxing few days at Lake Atitlan with family and friends.

Again, we wanted to share our travel plans with all guests for those who would like to join us, but this is absolutely optional!

Post-Wedding Activities

Mon 3/25-Wed 3/27

Mayan Pyramids of Tikal

After the wedding weekend, we plan to visit Tikal, an ancient Mayan city in the rainforests of northern Guatemala.  Once the greatest city of the Maya world, its iconic ruins of temples and palaces leave much to be explored.  The grounds are located in a dense tropical forest, home to toucans, parrots, howler & spider monkeys, and other animals.

The best travel option is a one hour flight from La Aurora Airport in Guatemala City to the town of Flores, and then a one hour shuttle to Tikal.

Many tourists take quick one-day trips to Tikal, but there are also a few hotels located near the ruins if you are interested in staying longer.

Wed 3/27-Sat 3/30

Lake Atitlan

Renowned as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, Lago de Atitlan is Guatemala's largest lake and deepest in Central America, naturally created in a volcanic crater formed 84,000 years ago.  It is surrounded by multiple volcanos and Mayan villages, offering plenty to explore and a beautiful backdrop to relax and swim. 

Lake Atitlan is one of our favorite places in all of Guatemala.  We would love for you to join us as we spend some time unwinding from the wedding.

Travel to Lake Atitlan is about three hours by car or shuttle from Guatemala City.  There are many hotels and Airbnb options around the lake.

Contact Antigua Tours to reserve your ride to the lake
