Horseback Riding Tours in Guatemala
Guatemala has some seriously beautiful scenery, and horseback tours are a great way to experience it. These tours allow you to cover lots of ground in one day — you might ride between Mayan villages along the shores of Lake Atitlán or trot to a forested waterfall in the Central Highlands. These tours use well-trained horses and are led by professional guides. Safety is prioritized and all tour participants will feel comfortable before heading out.
The tour starts with the Sky Way, while walking through six amazing suspension bridges and in a different and unique way, you will see the wonderful local flora and fauna, a very interesting way to watch the birds!!
Fincal El Pilar’s gardens hum with the tiny, whirring wings of its resident hummingbirds. This farm does not produce agriculture, but rather exists to help conserve some of the rare and endangered species of plants and animals in Antigua.
On the first day of your journey, you’ll start your exploration of the area’s wildlife on a trail through the jungle of the Tikal National Park. Eventually you will come to a clearing, scattered with the stony ruins of Mayan temples and palaces. You have arrived at Tikal, home to one of the most prominent dynasties during the Mayan classic period. OPTIONAL only Professional Bird guide, lunch ,entrance fee to site.
Guatemala’s Pacific Coast has healthy populations of enormous fish, and this tour allows you to catch some of the most impressive species. This tour is also an excellent opportunity to see sea turtles, dolphins, and the occasional whale.
Fill your head with new recipes and your belly with a delicious, 5-course meal. These recipes aren’t haute cuisine, but a look at what Guatemalan families actually eat on an everyday basis, dishes that you’ll want to recreate in your own home. This includes one of the staples of Guatemalan cuisine – hearty, delicious tortillas.
This hike through the tree canopy of the Atitlan Reserve will give you a bird’s eye view of an exciting environment. Atitlan Reserve is shaped by the three volcanoes that surround Lake Atitlan. Pristine Lake Atitlan and the surrounding grounds of the reserve offer more natural beauty than you can capture with a few snapshots. To get the most out of this scenery, get a view from the top.
This tour offers you an interesting looks at some of the historical and cultural underpinnings of Antigua.
