I just returned from a 5 day trip to Guatemala. My traveling partner and I had a wonderful time. The trip which was through Gate 1 Travel was very well organized. We flew into Guatemala City. The next day we drove to the beautiful town of Antigua. We toured several sites in the city in the morning. In the afternoon we drove to the quaint town of Chichicastenango. This town has a very colorful and lively Mayan market which was lots of fun. The shopping was great and interacting with the local people was quite interesting. The following day we did a short excursion to beautiful Lake Atitlan. I would have loved more time exploring this beautiful lake. Another time, perhaps. On last day of our tour there were several optional tours. We opted to climb Pacaya, an active volcano. The hike was a little strenuous but worth it. The views from near the top (for safety reasons people aren't allowed to go to the top) were spectacular. Our visit to Guatemala was jam- packed with activities. Although short, we had a great time and left me wanting to return to Guatemala!
