Bella Guatemala Travel is celebrating Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, with a nine-night tour of Guatemala spotlighting the country's Mayan culture, departing Oct. 27.
The highlight of the tour is the annual All Saints Day Giant Kite Festival at Santiago Sacatepequez, where participants fly colorful, massive kites that are believed to both communicate with and honor lost loved ones.
The itinerary also includes a tour of Tikal National Park; a visit to La Azotea Coffee Plantation, where visitors will learn to make their own chocolates and truffles; a tour of the Unesco World Heritage-designated city of Antigua; a boat tour of Lake Atitlan; and a visit with the weavers from the Association of Women in Botanical Colors cooperative.
Priced from $4,495 per person, double, the cost covers roundtrip from any U.S. airport, accommodations, three meals, transfers, sightseeing and entrance fees, services of bilingual tour guides and taxes and gratuities.Bella Guatemala Travel
