Summary

Discover volcanoes, rainforests, and ancient Mayan sites, starting with one of the Americas’ oldest and most beautiful cities, Antigua—Guatemala’s former 16th-century capital. Amid its pastel buildings, cobblestone streets, and three volcanoes surrounding the city, your Local Host will share private tours of Antigua’s Spanish-Colonial architecture and ruins of the churches and monasteries destroyed by the earthquake of 1776. Visit the highland town of Chichicastenango. In the whitewashed town, visit the open-air Indian market, and witness ancient Mayan ceremonies in the Church of Santo Tomás. Continue to Lake Atitlán to visit the village of Santiago Atitlán. Meet the Tzutuhil people who continue traditions of their indigenous Guatemalan ancestors. Take a city tour of Guatemala City, then fly to San José, Costa Rica for the next part of your Central America adventure.

In La Fortuna, explore the Arenal Volcano area with a 2-night stay. Visit the famed Tabacón Hot Springs in the lush, tropical forest here. Options during your time here include a Naturalist-guided tour of the Arenal Hanging Bridges, a network of suspension bridges and platforms built in the cloud forest. Or, river rafting, horseback riding, and cave spelunking may also catch your interest in exploring this incredible part of the world. Transfer to Monteverde with a short boat ride across Arenal Lake, and travel to Monteverde Cloud Forest—home to thousands of plant, animal, and bird species. Explore the cloud forest at dusk with an expert naturalist guide to spot fascinating nocturnal wildlife. Spend a day of leisure to explore Monteverde. Perhaps visit Santa Elena Cloud forest with its misty sanctuary of mosses, ferns, and flowers; or visit a local family farm to learn about sugar cane, coffee, and Tilapia farming. It’s an unforgettable Central American Monograms vacation to discover incredible nature and native people.
