Tour to Santa Catarina and San Juan la Laguna


Horseback Riding on Lake Atitlan

Santa Catarina is a small Mayan kaqchikel village well known in Guatemala. Explore Santa Catarina in a real way, beyond post cards and tour books.  Our tour features the faces of Catarinecas or tunecos (males) wearing their distinctive blue pants, and the women with their beautiful traje (indigenous clothing).   Each blouse is made individually and takes weeks to make.  We will have the oportunity to visit mayan families in their homes and briefly be a part of their life experience first hand.  We will visit educational projects in order to better understand the challenges and realities faced by Mayan children.  When we leave the village you will have lasting memories that will be vivid and accurate as to life in the village.

We will leave Santa Catarina by boat for the beautifyul 20 minute crossing to San Juan la Laguna, this time a Mayan Tzutujil village.  In San Juan we will experience Art galleries and a medicinal herbal plantation. The thing San Juan is really known for is their natural dye textiles.   We will have a first hand demonstration of this technique.   It is also possible to arrange to witness authentic Mayan ceremonies.  Speak to your tour guide if this interests you!
