Depart towards Antigua, which is the focus of your Colonial Antigua tour. Antigua's official name is 'The Noble and Loyal City of Santiago de los Caballeros', and was founded by the Spanish conquistadors as the capital of the Spanish Kingdom, which extended from the Yucatan Peninsula to what is now Costa Rica.
Depart towards the nearby open-cage zoo called the Auto-Safari Chapin - a natural reserve founded in 1980. Its mission is to help preserve the fauna and to educate about the vital importance of animals. It is among the largest animal parks in Guatemala.
The Lake Atitlán is "the most beautiful lake in the world" and this same phrase is often heard from the European and American visitors that constantly travel through the narrow winding road that leads to Lake Atitlán. The beautiful lake, as it is seen from Panajachel, Santa Catarina and San Antonio Palopó, has three volcanoes (Tolimán, Atitlán and San Pedro), as its backdrop.
Drive 90 minutes through lowland pastures and past three spectacular volcanoes en route to the Filadelfia Coffee Estate in the central zone on the outskirts of Antigua. The Filadelfia Coffee Estate is an ecological project which encompasses approximately 250 acres of land.
Depart your ship towards an area on the Pacific coast of Guatemala known as Monterrico. This area features the best black-sand beaches in the country and is now home to the deluxe Cayman Suites Hotel. The black-sand beach stretches for miles and is a great place to relax and enjoy the sunset.
