    Iximche
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission excluded
    Discover the history of the ancient Mayan Civilization of Iximche. The site was ruled by the Kaqchikel from the 12th - 15th century. At the time of the Spanish conquest, Iximche was the second most important city in the Guatemalan Highlands, after the K'iche' capital at Q'umarkaj. The architecture of the site includes four Ceremonial Plazas surrounded by temples, structures up to 10m high and two ball courts. There's also a small Museum displaying sculptures and ceramics found at Iximche during the excavations (CLOSED ON MONDAY). This site is considered to be the first capital of Guatemala (founded by the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Alvarado).Our van will pick you up at your hotel between 7:20 am through 7:40 am. Our estimated time of arrival is around 9:00am, where our bilingual local guide will meet you to start the tour. He will begin by giving a general information of the site, and for this he will take you to the small museum, located at the entrance. From this point on, you will start to understand and learn how the Maya´s lived, and protected them from their enemies. Each plaza has its unique story, and each plaza gives you a glance on how their society was structured. The tour will be over around 11am in Antigua.

I can’t say enough about the personal service on this trip. I was picked up at my Spanish school within the timeframe indicated. The driver let me sit up front, and he chatted with me the entire way, so I got to practice my Spanish. And, the tour guide onsite was Mayan and

First let me say that the tour guide was excellent, the pick up was on time and as expected and this tour is a great way to wile away a couple of hours. However on arrival to the site, as a foreigner (the others were a Guatemalan family), I had to pay an extra 50 quetzals to

Hi Rebecca, we are so sorry for the inconvenience. Although we do have on the tour description what is included and what is not. It is clearly stated that drink and food is not included, and it also says that the entrance fee should be paid by the customer. Please check your ticket issued by trip advisor. If you require more assistance, please feel free to write us at info@cometoguatemala.com
