Guatemala / Trips
— La Azotea
Our Guatemala Trips
From Antigua, we currently offer a small selection of optional Trips that can be incorporated into your holiday plans.
Over time we plan to add additional trips, not just in Antigua but in others parts of Guatemala such as Lake Atitlan and Flores.
These Trips can last anything from a couple of hours to, as with the Acatenango volcano hike, an overnight stay.
Please note however that these Trips can only be booked as part of a complete holiday itinerary.
Acatenango Volcano OvernightOvernight hr/s tba Antigua Daily
The Acatenango volcano rises to 13,041 feet / 3,976 metres above sea-level and, in addition to panoramic views of the surrounding region, affords those who make it to the top close-up and personal views over the adjacent, and very active, Fuego volcano.
This two-day hike begins with your being collected from Antigua and spending the first day hiking through four, distinct eco-systems until camp is reached at 12,300 feet. The following morning you will press on to the summit before descending the mountain and returning to Antigua.
High quality tents, sleeping bags and walking poles are included while backpacks and warm clothing can also be provided.
Antigua Coffee Tour4 hr/s 09.00 Antigua Daily
The Azotea Coffee estate is located just outside Antigua and has been in operation since the end of the 19th century. Tours begin at the Museum, which explains the history of coffee, before heading outside and amongst the coffee trees where guides will explain how coffee is cultivated, harvested and processed. Of course, no tour is complete without a visit to the toaster where you can see, smell and taste the coffee for yourself. In addition to the Coffee Tour, the Azotea estate is also home to K'ojom House, a private, non-profit museum and research centre dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of traditional, Mayan music.
Antigua’s Surrounding Villages4 hr/s 09.00 Antigua Daily
Depart Antigua and head to the nearby village of San Antonio Agua Calientes, famous for its textiles and handicrafts, before continuing to the indigenous village of Santiago Zamora. Here you will learn about the MayaKaqchiquel culture and have the opportunity to interact with a group of women artisans called Ixoki’ aj Quiema’, who make beautiful and elaborate textile products, using techniques passed down from generation to generation. After a traditional lunch you will return to Antigua.
