Antigua Guatemala lies in the Panchoy mountain valley, sandwiched between the cones of the Agua, Acatenango and Fuego volcanoes. The city was founded in 1543 as the third capital of Guatemala, and was called Santiago de Guatemala. All of capitals of Guatemala were named after the Apostle James or Santiago. And only after the strongest Santa Marta earthquake occurred in 1773, the capital had to be moved to a new location in Guatemala City, and after 2 years people began to call the third capital Antigua Guatemala or ancient Guatemala.
The city reached its peak by the middle of the XVIII century, when an unprecedented building boom tripled its area, and the population grew to fifty thousand people. By 1773, this city had about 25 churches, 5 female monasteries, 8 male monasteries and a cathedral built in 1680 and which was compared only with the cathedral in Mexico City and Lima, Peru for the beauty and majesty of the building.

Santiago, founded in 1547 at the foot of the Toliman volcano, is the largest city with a population of 32 thousand people, 95% of whom are the Tzutuhil Maya. The local population lives off fishing, farming and making cayucos (local canoes). Artisans specialize in painting, woodwork and weaving. Santiago is the city of worship of Mashimon, a pagan deity or god of the Mayan people, to whom donations of alcohol and cigars are made. He lives in the house of the head of the religious brotherhood or cofradia for a year; and the family in whose house Mashimon lives does not work. Their only job is to take care of the god.
We will also look into the local Catholic church, where two religions have merged - Catholicism and Mayan beliefs, and walk past the local city hall, where the elders of the city are sitting dressed in white striped shorts and birds embroidered at the bottom.

The name of the volcano Fuego ("fire" in Spanish) speaks for itself. This is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. Fuego is known for being almost constantly active at a low level. Small emissions of gas and ash, as well as lava, occur every 10–20 minutes. And, probably, we will be able to observe all this from a better position.
Larger eruptions are rare. However, over the past 3 years, they have occurred at least once a year. Often such eruptions are very destructive.
Fuego connects with Acatenango and the complex of two volcanoes is known as La Horqueta.

Breakfast in the hotel. Transfer to the largest high-mountain Mayan market in Chichicastenango (110 km, 2-3 hours drive).
Chichicastenango is famous for the bazaar located here, which is a cluster of stalls with colorful souvenirs and handicrafts. Surrounded by valleys and mountains that cover the horizon, Chichicastenango may seem isolated in time and space from the rest of Guatemala. When its narrow, cobbled streets and red-tiled roofs are shrouded in mist, as is often the case, it can feel like you're in some kind of fairy tale.
Every year, on the eve of Saint Thomas Day, Guatemalan Indians in traditional colorful clothes are heading to the highlands of Chichicastenango, where performances of musical and dance ensembles, as well as outlandish folklore performances, are held in honor of the holiday.
This holiday, in fact, is the month of the city of Chichicastenango, because the most important days are December 20 and 21, but they begin to celebrate from December 1. All Chichikastenans who live in the USA sponsor every day of this holiday. And this means that every day there are dances, local musical groups and a lot of agua ardientes.
We arrive here on December 20 to see one of the most important dances of Guatemala - Palo Volador. This is a tall pillar, on which from 2 to 4 people dressed in monkey costumes climb on ropes and then they go down on these ropes. After a few attempts, they begin to descend upside down. It's worth seeing!
On the days of the festivities, women wear traditional "huipil" (blouses) and "corte" (skirts), painted in amazingly rich and bright colors. At the same time, the traditional costumes of the inhabitants of each of the settlements are unique, like the dialect, which gives the carnival a special flavor. Dancers in festive costumes and masks at the festival perform a carnival dance that mocks the conquest of America and immerses "Chichi", as Chichicastenango is affectionately called, in a rainbow whirlwind. During the festivities, images of St. Thomas can be seen everywhere on the streets. At this time, the smell of incense is heard from the churches, and fireworks explode in the streets and brass bands play loudly.
The main part of the festivities is concentrated in the church of St. Thomas. One glance at the church and its decoration is enough to notice the mixture of Catholic and Amerindian cultures, which is especially pronounced during the celebration of St. Thomas's Day.
Overnight at the hotel in Chichicastenango. Meals included: breakfast
Accommodation included: Hotel Santo Tomas or Hotel Museo Mayan Inn or similar Day 10. December 21, 2023 (Thursday). ANNUAL CARNIVAL IN CHICHICASTENANGO - ANTIGUA GUATEMALA
Today we will be at the city day celebration in Chichicastenango. Today is the main day of celebrations and we will see a lot of other local dances, as well as processions of 14 cofradia (religious brotherhoods) of Chichicastenango, a lot of fireworks and firecrackers. It's just a brain blast!
The Catholic patron saint of the city is St. Thomas, in his honor the church of Santo Tomas was built in the city in 1540. When the Catholic missionaries came, they destroyed the Mayan temple and built a white church in its place. The only thing left of the temple is 18 steep steps leading to the church according to the number of months in the Mayan solar calendar, Haab. Therefore, this church is probably the most unique Catholic church in Guatemala due to the religious symbiosis within the church. Half of the church is the Catholic church with all its attributes, saints, etc. and in the center lie slabs - altars, under which the sacred Mayan ancestors rest and on which the locals burn candles and pom, pour agua ardiente (local vodka) and honey, sprinkle with flower petals and communicate with their gods. Flowers, candles and pomace are sold on the steps of the church. Just like in front of the pyramids, in front of the stairs there is an altar - a round flat stone, from which smoke rises in clubs from smoldering pom. Along with the smoke, various requests from local residents rise to the sky. Right in front of the ahkih entrance, a Mayan priest or intermediary between humans and gods brandishes a tin can, which also emits smoke. The modern Guatemalan Indian, who diligently served in the Catholic Church, after it can openly go to the pagan temple to bow to the ancient gods. Christian dogmas in Guatemala are often mixed with elements of ancient Indian cults. So, many Indians perceive the Christian cross not only as a crucifix, but also as a symbol of the Mayan beliefs - the designation of the four cardinal points.
In the direction of the local cemetery, you will see another Catholic Church called Golgotha or Calvario. For many years this church was closed to tourists and even Ladins. Only the local Mayans could climb it. Inside this church, in a small, dark room sits Chuchhau (translated from the Quiche language - mother and father) or a local shaman. All the inhabitants of Chichicastenango come to him to find out the future or the cause of disease.
If you still want to look at the Mayan temple, then climb the sacred hill of Pascual - Abach. There are several stones and an idol with a stone face - Pascual Abach. It is said to be several thousand years old. Locals regularly bring food, cigarettes, flowers, spirits, Coca-Cola, and sometimes chickens as a sacrifice, in gratitude and hope for a continuation of life.
And what is a market without shopping, so take enough money with you to buy souvenirs. In the market, you can pay with US dollars. Chichicastenango market is famous mainly for its textiles and masks.

You can see Mayan Pyramids hidden in the rainforest, vegetation and water, this region of Guatemala is a paradise for nature lovers and water sports enthusiasts.
The natural area of Izabal resembles the richness of the Amazon forests. The rainforest of Izabal is unambiguously impressive. With the highest biodiversity in the country, with an abundance of vegetation on the banks of the rivers, it is rightfully called the Jade Coast.

Day 14. December 25, 2023 (Monday). FLORES - YAXHA (EL-MIRADOR) - TIKAL
Breakfast in Flores and transfer to the archaeological park of Yaxha, once the city of the Mayan civilization (70 km, 1.5 hours on the road). Unfortunately, Yaxha remains a mystery, with very little information available. The city is not heavily visited by tourists, although it is located on the shore of a beautiful lagoon with the same name. The complex was inhabited by the Mayan indigenous people for 16 centuries, from 600 BC to 900 AD. The complex contains over 500 structures, including 9 pyramids. From the Red Hand Pyramid or Structure 216, there is a magnificent view of the jungle and the lagoon.
Optionally, instead of a trip to Yaxha, for an additional fee ($525 per person), a helicopter tour to El Mirador can be organized (45 minutes flight).
El Mirador is one of the oldest and probably the largest cities built by the ancient Maya during the peak of their civilization over 2500 years ago. The ruins of this mysterious city are located in the north of Guatemala, in the department of Peten. Inaccessible and filled with countless mysteries, they are a must-visit for those interested in historically significant structures.
Most guidebooks mention two enormous pyramids, as they are the only ones that have survived relatively intact to the present day. However, in reality, El Mirador consisted of the Central Acropolis and three pyramid complexes: Tigre, Monos, and Danta. Danta, which was built later and served as an administrative and religious center, was constructed in several stages on top of a natural hill, with temples, terraces, and small pyramids gradually covering its slopes. The pyramids of Monos, on the other hand, were interspersed with long strips of palaces and stelae and had strong complex fortifications.
Currently, only two preserved pyramids can be seen, which are truly impressive in their size. For example, the Tigre pyramid rises to a height of 55 meters, while the Danta pyramid reaches a staggering 72 meters! The total volume of the Danta pyramid structure is 30 times larger than the volume of Temple I in Tikal!
Here, you can also see a decorative composition showing the twin gods Ishbalankue and Huna-Apu, which is recognized by historians as the oldest one found. The buildings of El Mirador are adorned with numerous scenes from the life of Vukub-Kakish, a proud deity depicted as a macaw.
For the past 20 years, archaeological excavations have been conducted in the city under the guidance of Richard Hansen, the principal scientific consultant for the film "Apocalypto" by Mel Gibson.
El Mirador is located 7 kilometers from the Mexican border and 105 kilometers from Tikal, and it is very difficult to reach this city. The expedition to El Mirador takes 2 days on foot or by mule (8 hours per day) for the most resilient, or 45 minutes by helicopter for the cleverest. Return by helicopter to Flores (45 minutes on the way).
Transfer to the hotel in Tikal National Park. Overnight at Hotel Jungle Lodge Tikal or similar. Meals included: breakfast

Day 15. December 26, 2023 (Tuesday). TIKAL - FLORES
Get up early and meet the sunrise at the highest Mayan temple in Tikal. After that, breakfast at the hotel and a tour of Tikal.
Tikal means "the place where the voices of the spirits are heard." - All the largest temples were built as funerary ones. The Maya considered the pyramids to be analogues of the mountains, on which, according to their beliefs, the spirits of the dead live.
Compared to other cities of the classical period, Tikal seems huge - it is the largest settlement in pre-Columbian America. Scientists came to this conclusion after a series of excavations conducted in the late 1950s. The population of Tikal is believed to have been up to 200,000.
It has been inhabited since 800 BC. until AD 900, only to be conquered again by the tropical jungle, from the early XI century until the early XX century, when Tikal was discovered and restoration work began.
The urban complex of Tikal (excluding the outskirts) occupied an area of about 16 square kilometers. There were 3 thousand buildings on it, and the pyramids were distinguished by a specific style that is not found anywhere else in Mesoamerica.
Particularly impressive are the six pyramidal temples, which, against the background of other structures of this type, look like real skyscrapers (up to 72 meters high). No wonder archaeologists called Tikal - the New York of the Mayan civilization.
Today, the Tikal National Park covers 575 square kilometers and was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979 as a cultural and natural heritage of mankind.
