Weaving Workshop and San Juan Tour
Visit the picturesque Mayan town of San Juan, overlooking the glorious waters of Lake Atitlan. Meander through the cobbled streets to learn of the history and culture of the town, before trying your hand at weaving at a local workshop.
Sail across Lake Atitlan to the quaint and traditional village of San Juan La Laguna. You will disembark at the dock and head up the hill to the peaceful town centre, where you will find galleries and impressive murals painted on the street walls. You'll have the chance to sit and relax in a cafe where you can soak up the atmosphere, before heading to one of the women's co-operatives for a demonstration of how they still make textiles in the traditional way today. You will have the chance to purchase some of these richly coloured textiles; from scarves to blankets. Visit an artist's studio to admire some of the local art depicting the history and landscape of the region. Lunch will then be served at one of the women's co-operatives. Afterwards, you may try your hand at weaving in a two-hour workshop to learn about traditional techniques unique to Guatemala.
Once you're ready, you'll head back down to the dock to transfer back to your hotel by boat.
