The people there speak Mam, Q’anjob’al and Spanish and work in agriculture, commerce, industry, services and artisan workshops. Worthy of special mention are the ceramic glass products, musical instruments, especially guitars, fireworks and palm products. Continue to Chivacabé to visit the palaeontology site El Mamut: Here on display are mammoth fossils and prehistoric deer from the paleo-indio period. Continue towards the ancient Mayan city Saq Ulew (Zaculeu) whose name means “white land” in K’iché. Buried in the heart of the Cuchumatan mountain range, Saq Ulew was the capital city of the Mam kingdom and is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of the Mayan post-classic period. The buildings date from the pre-classic period. Today on display are the remains of the temples, plazas and areas for playing the ancient ball game pelota. Of note at this site are the temascales that it was believed helped to purify the bodies and spirits of the leaders before ceremonies. After leaving Zaculeu, head to Todos Santos Cuchumatán whose archaeological artefacts indicate inhabitation since the early classic period, around the year 1500 BC. During the time in Todos Santos Cuchumatán visit the Todo Santos Artisans’ Shop where a video will be presented that shows the story of the town and its traditions and customs. Next visit the population and the Museum of Balam Culture whose owner Don Fortunato, has collected a range of articles during his life from every day items such as shoes, traditional dresses and traditional dances and masks to ceramic items as well as pre-Colombian items including utensils and raw materials for preparing food, musical instruments and photographs taken by Hans Namuth. His collection displays the evolution of the people from the time of his grandparents to the present day. The journey then continues to Chiabal, a community of Mam origen locted 17 kilometers from Todos Santos to spend the night in the homes of local families that are members of the Association of Organizations of the Cuchumatanes (ASOCUCH are its initials in Spanish) who will share their food and provide a unique experience in an autochthonous cultural environment. Here you will learn about the way of life of the people. The community of Chiabal is surrounded by nature, traditional mud-brick houses and women weaving outside their houses. Overnight: Plan A & B & C : Accommodation with local families.


Day 12. CHIABAL – CHAJUL – NEBAJ Breakfast at 7:30am with the families in their homes. The guide from ASOCUCH will take the group to the highest mountain peak in the country to enjoy a spectacular view in the Todos Santos Cuchumatán Municipal Forest Reserve. The journey will continue to Chiantla for a brief tour and visit of its church constructed between 1722 and 1723. On display is the image of the Virgen of Candelaria which dates from the seventeenth century and is visited by pilgrims. The altarpiece that guards the virgin is in the baroque style and elaborated with silver. Leave and head to the Ixil region in the territorial department of El Quiché comprised of Nebaj, Chajul and Cotzal. Chajul was the most important place in Ixil. Ceramic archaeological artefacts suggest that this region has been occupied since the second century AC and its indigenous control ended with the Spanish conquest. The communities of this region where severely affected during the civil war that ended with the signing of the Peace Accords in December 1996. Its inhabitants were forced to choose between supporting the national army or the armed guerrillas. The “scorched earth” policy polarized the population and initiated a massive displacement of the population resulting in the destruction of the social fabric of the communities. The Ixil region still retains its cultural richness and traditions. The traditional dress is one of the characteristics that remains intact and is considered a perfect fusion of history and tradition. During much of the nineteenth century there were no ladino people (meaning non-indigenous, or often a mixture of different cultures) and only at the beginning of the twentieth century did ladina families move to the area. Upon arrival in Chajul we will check in to the Posada Vetz K’aol, owned by the Association Chajulense, where rooms and bathrooms are shared. After resting a local guide from the association will accompany the group to a house with murals from the sixteenth century, the colonial church that has on display wooden altarpieces, antique paintings and the Christ of Golgota. The architecture of the houses made of mud-brick, wood, and tile roofs make Chajul a place unique for its culture, tradition and ancestral customs. Dinner will be in the Posada Vetz K’aol where you can acquire artisan works produced by members of the Association of Women United for Life, Youth Association Tx’amil Chajulense and Pastoral de la Mujer. Overnight: Plan A & B & C : BASIC HOTEL IN CHAJUL , there are NO other options here !

In 1530 they were conquered by the Spanish, making them one of the last groups to be conquered, along with the people of Ixil. In Uspantán a local guide who is a member of the Uspantán Tourism Association (ACAT are its initials in Spanish) will guide the group on a one and a half hour hike of moderate difficulty to the grottos of Peña Flor. On the way you may see squirrels, armadillos and listen to the singing of the birds. You can see archaeological remains and evidence of an area for playing the Mayan ball game pelota of the first site of this ancient city called Tzunun Kaab’, as Uspantán was originally called. At the end of the track is the Peña Flor grotto covered with moss and colorful orquids where beautiful waterfalls emerge. A fruit snack will be provided before returning to the road where a vehicle will be waiting to take the group to El Pajuil in Chicamán accompanied by a guide from the El Pajuil Poqomchi Committee of Educational Culture and Ethnic Tourism (CCEEPP are its initials in Spanish). Upon arrival at El Pajuil visit a Mayan kitchen poqomchi’ to enjoy a local lunch known as saqiik (a soup made of corn, chile and turkey meat), accompanied by marimba music played by local children. After lunch visit the community museum and artisan workshops. Leave Chicamán and head to the Xoconeb sacred hill. At this site there are twelve cofradías from the Uspanteka, K’iche and Q’eqchi’ cultures (cofradias are associations and stewardships


of Mesoamerican origin). In Xocoeb there are two grottos, one of which is like a church with areas dedicated to the images of saints where candles are placed and another in which the Mayan priests (ajq’il) celebrate ceremonies according to their calendar and the sacred flame is fed with colorful candles, to ask for health and riches, bless seeds, and be thankful for favors given. At this sacred hill a ceremony will be performed asking for health, life and safety on the journey home. Overnight:Plan A: Park Hotel ***/ Plan B: Hotel Casa Duranta **/ Plan C: Pensión Monja Blanca. Day 15. COBAN – SAN JUAN CHAMELCO – COBAN Start at 8:00am. To take advantage of the fresh morning start the day with a visit to the nearby Chicoj Coffee Cooperative comprised of more than 300 people of q’eqchi’ ethnicity where guides from the community will explain the coffee production process during a tour of the plantation. Next return to the city of Coban, founded in 1543 by the Dominican friars, and given the name “Imperial City” by the Spanish King Carlos V, as a result of the admiration prompted by the visit of Aj Pop, also known as Juan Matalbatz and other Maya Q’eqchi’ leaders. From the central plaza visit the beautiful cathedral constructed in 1543 where you can see beautiful altarpieces, candelabras and candlesticks. Next continue to the small historical museum of Alta Verapaz and visitors’ center of the region and the Museum of the Mayan Prince where a magnificent private collection that holds pre-hispanic pieces is on display. Continue to the Ixmucané Council of Mayan Women with fifty members of Q’eqchi’ origin where you can buy beautiful dolls and artisan works made by widows and orphans of the civil war that ended in 1996 with the signing of the peace. We will watch a demonstration by the artisans and enjoy some tostaditas and a drink called pinol. Next head to the Calvario constructed in 1810 after climbing 137 steps that are illuminated by candles on January 14 and 15 when the religious festival Señor de Esquipulas is celebrated, on December 8 in honor of the Virgin of Concepción and on December 24 and 31, creating a mystical atmosphere. Before finishing the morning we will visit the artisan shop of the Aj K’uub’anel Association of Artisans where we will find weavings and earthenware products, leather and traditional sweets. The order of the visits can change. Free time to enjoy lunch (not provided) in Cobán. 2:00pm Travel to San Juan Chamelco. On the way visit the Chirrepec Agricultural Cooperative to learn about the cultivation, harvest and processing of tea. In San Juan Chamelco there is a site honouring Juan Matalbatz, Cacique de Caciques (Chief of Chiefs), a national hero for having negotiated a peaceful entry of the Spanish army into the territory of Tezulutlán. He was the only indigenous chief who visited the Spanish Royal Court who for his visit was named as first governor for life of the Verapaces region and is the only case during the Spanish arrival in which an indigenous chief was permitted to retain his political power. Juan Matalbatz was given the right to detain and punish Spaniards and this prompted the province to change its name from Tezulutlán (Tierra de Guerra – land of war) to Verapaz (Land of True Peace). Overnight in Cobán (second night) Day 16. COBAN – SEMUC CHAMPEY – LANQUIN – COBAN Travel to Semuc Champey, a national monument of Guatemala where there are springs, ponds and waterfalls that go to the Cahabón River which travels underground before emerging again at the surface. This site is of special importance to Mayan spirituality due to its abundance of flora and fauna, the connection between man and the forces and spirits of nature, teaching to treat it with respect in order to maintain equilibrium. Here we can bathe and enjoy a traditional lunch. After lunch visit the grottos of Lanquín, a sacred site for the Mayans believed to be inhabited by the Chacs, divinities of the rain, the nawales of the four cardinal points and the four colors of the Mayan cosmovision: red, black, white and yellow. These grottos feature in the Popul Wuj as the entrance to Xib’alb’a, the underworld, place of obscurity and death, that had two principal entrances: caves and water bodies. Ceremonies in thanks of Ajaw (god) and ancestors are celebrated here. Overnight in Coban (third night)

Day 17. COBAN – CHISEC Travel to Chisec, whose name has two interpretations: “place of the navaja” or “place of the trastos”. In Chisec and surrounding areas evidence of Mayan inhabitation has been found. Here, at only 200 meters above sea level we will begin an incredible adventure in the Caves of Candelaria national park, one of the paths of Xib’alb’a, made up of a system of mystical speleological caves that are a site of pilgrimage for descendents of the Mayans, considered to be the entrance to the underworld where souls rest. These caves were declared to be a cultural and eco-tourism complex due to their richness in flora, fauna and archaeological sites. In Candelaria visit the caves Window of Safety and Dome of the Bats. The walk is of moderate to high level of difficulty, walking approximately 3.4 kilometers in a time of 3.45 hours. Have lunch in the Candelaria visitors’ center where you will enjoy a traditional dish of the


region known as kaq’ik that is a soup made of turkey, corn tamales and white rice prepared by women of q’eqchi’ origin who are members of the Chisec Tourism Association (AGETUCHI are its initials in Spanish). Lunch is included. After lunch enjoy a short rest and continue to the Muqb’ilja community. Located here are the caves called Venado Seco and Mico, another path of Xib’alb’a, whose name is of special importance as it is considered the beginning of creation and the thread of time and life. Ceremonies of veneration are celebrated here and it is given great importance according to the Mayan cosmovision.

This city was governed by Tah Ak Chann who converted it in a city made powerful by its economic development and trade in the classic Mayan period. From this site the trades in jade and quetzal feathers (bird symbol of Guatemala) were controlled.

3. CEIBAL one day Seibal, known as El Ceibal in Spanish, is a Classic Period archaeological site of the Maya civilization located in the northern Petén department of Guatemala. It was the largest city in the Pasión region. The site was occupied from the Preclassic Period through to the Terminal Classic, with a significant hiatus. The principal phase of occupation dates to the Late Preclassic, followed by a decline in the Early Classic. Seibal experienced a significant recovery in the Terminal Classic immediately prior to its complete abandonment, reaching its second peak from about 830 to 890, with a population estimated at 8–10,000 people. The dates on the stelae at Seibal are unusually late; with monuments still being dedicated after the Classic Maya collapse had engulfed most of the Petén region. Many of Seibal's late monuments show artistic influence from central Mexico and from the Gulf Coast of Mexico. The site core is divided into three principal hilltop groups (Groups A, C and D) connected by causeways and covers a little over 1km². The causeways were faced with masonry and had parapets in places. Causeway I is the western causeway, Causeway II is the south causeway and Causeway III is the eastern causeway. Group D is a fortress refuge concealed above the river frontage. Group B is a small complex located about 3km from the site core. Group A is smaller than Group D but has most of the sculptured monuments. Various small house mound groups lie beyond the site core. They are spaced between 50 and 100 meters apart, extending for several kilometers to the north, south and west. Min. 02 Persons ALL IN PRIVATE Full Day.

4. AGUATECA one day Aguateca, known during the Classic as K'inich Witz or "Sun Faced Mountain" has a very distinctive history and was the scene of an invasion and destruction that occurred in the early 9th. Century AD a time when all the major cities in Petén were abandoned, Aguateca is a medium-sized Maya centre located in the tropical lowlands of western Guatemala. We don’t know yet who attacked Aguateca and his last ruler Tan Te K’nich, what we do know is that this city, along with Dos Pilas, formed a kingdom since 700 AD; and that Aguateca was the last capital maybe because its location and fortified walls. Every one of the elite residences excavated so far has included an artistic workshop—a sign that Aguateca's sculptors, painters, ceramic artists, and scribes came overwhelmingly from the ranks of nobility. A sampling of clay figurines shows their range of inspiration. The site is divided into three districts based on topography, settlement, and its fortifications: epicenter, periphery, and wetlands (Inomata 1995). The epicenter is located to the west of the escarpment. It is an area protected by the chasm on the south and west, by the escarpment on the east, a large sinkhole on the north, and by wall segments (Inomata 1995; Van Tuerenhout et al. 1993; Van Tuerenhout 1996).

215 USD p.p RACK / 185 USD p.p NET (Discount for groups). Transport, guide, entrance fees and lunch. 5. Two days CEIBAL & AGUATECA Ceibal was occupied from the Preclassic Period through to the Terminal Classic, with a significant hiatus. The principal phase of occupation dates to the Late Preclassic, followed by a decline in the Early Classic. Ceibal experienced a significant recovery in the Terminal Classic immediately prior to its complete abandonment, reaching its second peak from about 830 to 890, with a population estimated at 8–10,000 people. Dos Pilas is a Pre-Columbian site of the Maya civilization located in what is now the department of Petén, Guatemala. It dates to the Late Classic Period, being founded by an offshoot of the dynasty of the great city of Tikal in 629 A.D. in order to control trade routes in the Petexbatún region, particularly the Pasión River. In 648 A.D. Dos Pilas broke away from Tikal and became a vassal state of Calakmul, although the first two kings of Dos Pilas continued to use the same emblem glyph that Tikal did. Aguateca and the nearby city of Dos Pilas were the twin capitals of a powerful dynasty claiming descent from the rulers of Tikal. Around 700 A.D., Aguateca became a large, densely populated city, with a higher density of structures than most other lowland Maya sites. In 761 A.D., the rulers of Dos Pilas appear to have abandoned their city and relocated to Aguateca. During the reign of Tan Te' K'inich the city was invaded and burned. The city was completely abandoned around 830 A.D. A 6 meter tall temple at the site was left unfinished, the centre of the city was destroyed by fire, valuables were left scattered in elite residences, and ceramics were left in their original domestic positions, all of which demonstrate the sudden abandonment of the city. Known Rulers: Ucha'an K'an B'alam, father of Tan Te' Kinich, ruled in the 8th century A.D. Min. 02 Persons ALL IN PRIVATE Two Days.

The Petén rainforest's Mirador Basin is the last tract of virgin rainforest remaining in Central America. It is home to the largest and earliest cities in the Maya world and is the area of many recent and important archaeological investigations. This trail is operated by the people of from Carmelita, the northernmost village of Petén located close to the Mexican border. This community was founded 60 years ago as an important base for chicle collection and processing. Chicle is the resin of the Chico Zapote tree, which forms the natural base of chewing gum. Another rainforest product is the xate palm frond which is used in floral arrangements. The villagers of Carmelita have always depended on the surrounding forest for their livelihood and have extracted these non-timber forest products in a sustainable manner. This trail explores the Lost Maya Empire of El Mirador. Legend has it that at its height, El Mirador was four times as grandiose as Tikal. This impressive site remains one of the most isolated and understudied of the great Mayan ruins. Although largely unexcavated, these ruins are still predominantly intact, protected by the dense jungle canopy which covers and protects them from erosion The most impressive structure in the complex is the Tigre Pyramid, which stands at an unprecedented height of 18 stories, the tallest pyramid yet discovered in the Maya world, with a base the size of three football fields. Over 200 other buildings in this gigantic complex still remain undiscovered. Come and explore El Mirador, one of the greatest legacies left by the Maya Civilization! Day 1 06:00 10:00 11:00
