You start your adventure in Panajachel. Drive along ancient roadways used by the Kachekel Maya for centuries. The drive takes you 2500 feet above the stunning waters of Lake Atitlan for breath taking views of the surrounding scenery. This remote area has barely been touched by the outside world. Observe daily village life, see farmers tending their maize fields, vegetable fields, and coffee plantations, and immerse yourself in some of the most magnificent scenery in the world.

You will visit the Sacred Caves of San Jorge, where it is likely you will witness a Mayan shaman performing a fire protection ceremony.
