This Cultural Tour provides a unique travel experience, which will take you to scenic and colorful venues throughout Guatemala. Designed by Terry Gay, this amazing adventure includes among the many highlights, visits to a private home; Birding and photographic opportunities; and many special venues.

The hotels, excursions, special events, and cuisine will be luxury and five-star all the way. You will travel through the highland mountains to the famed Lake Atitlán, often called the most beautiful lake in the world, surrounded by majestic volcanoes and a dozen Maya villages. You will witness the Maya who still live and survive as they have for hundreds of years; people who are happy and at peace with the beauty they are able to weave into their textiles, with the produce they grow and sell at their markets, with a blend of pagan rituals and Christian beliefs, with simple lives not totally influenced by the need for modern technology. In Chichicastenango, prepare for your senses to be overwhelmed by the colors, textures, and sights of this world renowned Maya market. You will step back in time over 400 years as you enter Antigua with its Spanish Colonial appeal and charm. From Spanish colonial architecture, monasteries, courtyards with fountains, cathedrals, and bougainvillea draped ruins, to its romantic surroundings, this town is considered one of the most beautiful in Central America and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will be enthralled by many other fascinating experiences and beautiful venues that await you on this magical journey. 

So, pack your bags and get your expectations in gear for this travel experience of a lifetime to Guatemala, where the rich tapestry of ancient Maya cultures and traditions woven in with historical European influences has all come together; where extinct volcanoes and ancient earthquakes have created one of the most beautiful countries in the world; where you will enter into a provocative existence of ancient civilization with western influences.

Travelers, friends and artists of all media are invited to join Terry Gay Puckett’s Explore Guatemala Cultural Tour.  The beauty and culture of the Maya await you in Guatemala; you’ll have the most memorable and fun experience!
