Tikal – Mayan Ancestry
El Peten, in northeast Guatemala, represents the largest tropical forest in Central America, containing ruins, great and small, from the ancient Maya civilization. The crown jewel among the Peten’s 13,000 square miles is Tikal, a sprawling complex of more than 3,000 structures. The ruins of Ceibal, Aguateca, and Yaxha contribute to the Peten’s standing as the heartland of the Maya. Countless more ruins still lie shrouded by dense forest overgrowth in the Peten, which contains over 800 species of trees, 57 species of reptiles, and 500 species of birds. Tapirs, peccararies and jaguars still roam the emerald forest, just as they did when the ancient Maya ruled the region.
Antigua Guatemala – Spanish Heritage
Antigua Guatemala is one of the most idyllic destinations in the world, with painstakingly restored Spanish colonial architecture, manicured parks, stylish hotels, superb international cuisine and a horizon shaped by three spectacular volcanoes. Walking along cobblestone streets, visitors find high-end art galleries, fascinating museums, luxurious shops with international treasures and traditional markets packed to the rafters with locally made textiles and wood crafts. With its architecture, culture and unique setting, Antigua Guatemala, quite simply, is the most charming city in all the Americas.
Lake Atitlan – Natural Splendor
Lake Atitlan is a natural marvel like no other, 50 square miles of deep, crystal blue water surrounded by three lofty volcanoes. Formed by a volcanic cataclysm 100,000 years ago, the lake shimmers in a mountain valley, overlooked by a dozen quaint villages, whose residents proudly wear traditional dress that distinguishes each town from the next. Despite the rustic setting of old world villages, exquisite accommodation and superb dining are available, providing a perfect setting to savor the intoxicating tranquility of his unique natural wonder. British novelist Aldous Huxley once called this lake “the most beautiful in the world.” Few, if any, could disagree.
Golf – La Reunion
Fuego Maya is La Reunion’s spectacular 18 – hole golf course, designed by legendary architect Pete Dye. This course celebrates the similarities between the millenary Mayan calendar and the game of golf. The Mayan calendar consists of 18, 20 – day months, followed by a period of 5 days. The first 9 months follow the sun moving north and the remaining 9 months follow the sun as it travels south. The last 5 – day period is known as Wayeb, and much like golf’s celebratory 19th hole, it is meant to be a time for relaxing and preparing for the journey ahead. So join us! Enjoy the unforgettable experience of celebrating the forces of life at La Reunion Antigua Guatemala.
Departing either from Guatemala City or from Pacific Fins, you will really get to enjoy the very best of what Guatemala has to offer by means of a 2 – 6 passenger chopper. We can arrange for you to spend time aloft traveling along the volcanic landscape and the lakes within them on you way to or from the Resort. Views are truly spectacular.
