    Horseback Riding

     

    There are many means of transportation, but there is nothing quite like taking a horseback ride while enjoying the beauty of nature. Accompany us to the oldest stables of Antigua and enjoy a scenic and unforgettable ride through the mountains and trails of Antigua Guatemala.

    Established in 1989 and founded by English riders, Ravenscroft Stables have several years of experience in breeding and high standard training with horses. The rides take around 2 to 3 hours and lead us through the spectacular area around the town of San Juan del Obispo. Personally guided by the owners, this ride is designed by an experienced rider who can control the horse in all its steps. If you are a less experienced rider, slower pace instruction and suitable horses are also available.

     

    Boots or half-chaps and helmets are provided by us at no additional charge.

    The walks usually leave San Juan at 9:00 am, but you are expected at the stable at 8:30 am to have time to test the boots and the other equipment.

    Arrival in the afternoon is at 3:00 pm.

  • Cultural Walking Tour Antigua Guatemala

    $28.00

    Description:
    Walk around in this wonderful city and learn about the Guatemalan history during colonial times. We start the tour with the Cathedral that was built in 1680 and with the fountain on the main square, where we explain the history of the city by means of surrounding examples of colonial architecture. Next we visit the San Francisco el Grande Church which was built in 1702. It is one of the best-preserved churches in Antigua and the resting place of the first saint in Central-America, Hermano Pedro. We then walk to the beautiful baroque church of Nuestra Señora de la Merced, one of Antigua’s most beautiful colonial style churches. This building was finished in 1767. On the left side of the church, there is a convent which is open to the public for a small fee. The tour ends in a jade factory, where you can learn about the different types of jade, the history of jade in Guatemala and understand how long it takes to make just one piece. To the ancient Maya, jade represented things like maize (corn), the wind, breath and the soul. They made jade into belts, nose decorations, mosaic masks, tooth inserts, beads and ear spools (a kind of earring that looks like a spool). They also worked jade into “celts” – a kind of axe-head. As for decoration, designs representing flowers were popular for jade jewelry. The jade is cut and polished in the factory by local Guatemalan workers who follow the carving traditions of their ancestors.
