The Guatemala Yoga in the Mystic Mayan Land Retreat is 8 Days/7 Nights and will take you on a mystical journey, healing each of the chakras and exploring the World of the Mayans. The retreat starts in Antigua. Founded in the early 16th Century and nestled between three volcanoes, Antigua served as Guatemala's capital city for more than 200 years until 1773. This peaceful, and restored colonial city is a pleasure to explore, offering an array of cultural activities, museums, and cathedrals.
After a night in Antigua we will travel to Lake Atitlan. This majestic lake is one of the most beautiful places in Guatemala, surrounded by Twelve colorful Mayan villages and blue mountains. We will stay 3 nights in this perfect paradise to relax, enjoy nature, and rejuvenate ourselves. You will be able to hike to the surrounding villages, bird watch, climb the volcanoes and take an amazing day trip to the famous Chichicastenango Market, famous for its colorful local textiles and handcrafts.
Following our Lake Atitlan adventure we travel to the northern region of Peten to visit the colorful city of Flores and the ancient Mayan City of Tikal. We will take a day trip to Tikal to visit the astonishing Mayan ruins, learn about this sacred site, and do a spiritual meditation as we observe the rising sun from one of the famous Mayan temples. Tikal is the largest archaeological excavation site in the American continent as it comprises 222 square miles of jungle all around the ceremonial center. This ancient Mayan city contains some of the most amazing archaeological remains of the ancient Mayan civilization and possesses a magic that fascinates everyone that visits it. Our trip will finish back in Antigua where you can relax for the day or finish up any shopping at the local markets. Check out our Guatemala Yoga Retreat video from this retreat.
Take the opportunity to travel with professional guides and be guided by certified yoga teachers.
