  • Indigenous Villages Tour around Antigua

    $45.00

    We will pay a visit to three interesting villages (pueblos) around Antigua.

    San Juan del Obispo:
    Our first stop will be San Juan del Obispo, on the slopes of Volcano Agua. Here we will visit the temple, monastery and square of the first bishop of Guatemala, Francisco Marroquin. The village is famous for holding one of the first Catholic churches in Guatemala. Francisco Marroquin resided in San Juan del Obispo and still appears on our Q100 bill. San Juan del Obispo is a haven for artisans and is home to Guatemala’s best chocolatiers. For this reason, around Antigua, you will often see chocolate sold from San Juan del Obispo. We recommend supporting the local community during your visit to San Juan by purchasing the chocolate whilst there, which can also be considerably cheaper. Also, San Juan is known for a fruit called “nispero”, which comes in season in late October and November. In November an annual Festival del Nispero is held at the town’s main plaza to celebrate the start of the season. The festival lasts 2 days and is well worth a visit. Expect to see lively music, craftsman selling their wares from metals and woods, chocolates and Nispero wine.

    Ciudad Vieja:
    Seven kilometers southwest of Antigua along the Escuintla road is Ciudad Vieja (Old City), near the site of the first capital of the Captaincy General of Guatemala. Founded in 1527, it met its demise 14 years later when Volcano Agua let loose a flood of water that had been penned up in its crater. The water deluged the town with tons of rock and mud, leaving only the ruins of La Concepción church. We will unfold to you the history of this town, which was the second city founded by Spanish in Guatemala. We will also visit the organic macadamia farm where you will learn about the many medical functions of the macadamia nut.

    San Antonio Aguas Calientes:
    Last but not least, we visit the small picturesque town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes. This city was founded in 1528 and the majority of the population is Kaqchikel. One of Guatemala’s most well-known exports is traditional textiles, woven by Maya women, many who learn the craft from a very young age.  As far as textiles go, the town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes (translated as San Antonio Hot Springs) has the best reputation for quality textiles. We will visit the textile co-operative market here where you will be able to view the Mayan women using a back strap loom to weave traditional patterns. You will also have the opportunity to shop and buy any gifts from this market that you would like, which additionally supports the local Mayan women’s Co-Operative. The handicrafts market also has a small museum that has traditional dresses on display of most major regions in Guatemala, and is very much worth a visit. The tour ends in the jade factory, where you can learn about the different types of jade and 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.
