We'll begin in Guatemala City with a visit to the Jardin Botanico, a fine garden that was founded in 1922, and which has more than 1,400 species. With a local expert, we'll explore the garden and learn about fascinating Mayan super food plants such as the Chaya or Mayan Tree Spinach.

Our adventure will next take us to the enchanting colonial city of Antigua, which is situated in the Guatemala Highlands surrounded by volcanoes.

We will explore this intriguing colonial city, and seek out a unique native tree, Bourreria Huanita, which had medicinal use in prehistoric times.

We will continue to enchanting Lake Atitlan where we will boat across the lake to explore village life around this jewel of the Americas.

We then fly to the finest Mayan archaeological site in Central America -- Tikal, with an optional extension to the superb archaeological sites of Quirigua and Copan.

Guatemala is a treasurehouse of wonders! We invite you to take this opportunity to explore them.

Sincerely,

Linda McKendry
