If you’re planning a rendezvous to Guatemala, it’s imperative to plan ahead to some extent and take advantage of all the amazing things the country has to offer! Lucky for you, we’ve got you covered with a few recommendations for amazing activities to add to your itinerary in Guatemala.
Surf in El Paredon
About a four-hour drive from Guatemala City, El Paredon is the perfect coastal city to soak up some rays, and enjoy many water sports that are an integral way of life for locals in this area. Book a surfing lesson or just lay on the beach and relax.
Visit a Coffee Farm
Visit a coffee plantation and learn the history of coffee production in Guatemala, the production process, and enjoy an authentic tasting experience. We recommend the Ride Filadelfia Coffee Plantation tour, where you can explore the coffee trails on horseback.
Hike a Live Volcano
Head to Antigua and book a hiking tour to see a live volcano! We recommend booking with a professional tour for safety reasons. Grab your backpack, some hiking boots, and lots of water, and get moving.
Chocolate Making Class
Book a chocolate production class and tour, and revel in the artisanal chocolate experience. The country is known for producing some of the best chocolate in the world, and this is the pace to try it! We recommend booking a workshop at ChocoMuseo Antigua!
Shop at Chichicastenango Market
This is a great place to explore the history of Guatemala, engage with locals, taste authentic cuisine, and buy amazing souvenirs to remember your trip by.
