Half-Day Sightseeing Tour of Fuentes Georginas Hot Springs

Half-Day Sightseeing Tour of Fuentes Georginas Hot Springs

star-5
3
Under an hour from Quetzaltenango, the Fuentes Georginas Hot Springs are an evergreen destination: four vivid thermal pools infused with warm volcanic waters and surrounded by cloud forest. They are tricky to reach by public transport, while the winding mountain road can make self-driving challenging. This affordable half-day tour, with pickup and drop-off direct from many Quetzaltenango hotels, will save both time and stress.

Private Hike to a Sacred Lagoon on a Crater Volcano - Full-Day Tour from Xela

Private Hike to a Sacred Lagoon on a Crater Volcano - Full-Day Tour from Xela

The Volcano and Lagoon of Chicabal are a must on your visit to Xela. Go on this easy hike and visit the volcano´s crater full of water, now considered a sacred place for the Mayans. In Guatemala, there are only two volcanoes with a lagoon on their crater, and this is one of them. Many Mayans come to the crater lagoon to practice ceremonies, have direct communication with their ancestors and gods, and be surrounded by nature. Because this is considered a sacred place, it is not permitted to swim in the lagoon, however, you will appreciate up close the Mayan beliefs whether you see a ceremony or not. If you don´t see one, you will not miss the chance to see all the bouquets on the shore, left there by people as offerings or to say thanks for a favor answered. This is an all-included package, so you don´t have to worry about your transportation, entrance tickets, tourist guide, lunch, or, anything else. We will coordinate everything for you, so you just enjoy the experience.
