http://www.irtra.org.gt/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=7&Itemid=126 Located two and half hours from Lake Atitlan, Xocomil water park is located in the tropical lowlands on the Pacific coast. This water park is truly a nice surprise! It is full big, well-designed waterslides, lazy rivers and wave pools, all set in a well-manicured, tropical lush setting.
The park is clean and very well maintained and managed. Open Thurs – Sun from 9:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.
Entrance fee is Q.100.00 (approximately $13) and include access to all rides and attractions!
Leaving La Casa Colibri at 7:00a.m. you will arrive around 9:00a.m. which provides plenty of time to
enjoy all the attractions and you will be back at the house by sunset. Private transportation for up
to 12 passengers is $150.00 round trip.
Former seat of the Spanish colonial crown in what is now Guatemala, Antigua was at one time the capital of what is now Chiapas, Mexico to Panama. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Antigua is a perfect example of a 16th Century Spanish colonial town.
Dramatically set at the base of a perfectly cone-shaped (extinct) volcano, Antigua is home to countless restaurants, cafes, shops, churches and marketplaces. Ask me for more information on daytrips to Antigua.
Xela is located a one and a half hour drive to the north of Lake Atitlan. Guatemala’s second largest city (behind the capital) has a distinctly German or Austrian feel to its architecture, due to the fact that it was developed largely by Germans in the 19th Century. It was the German immigrant population who introduced the coffee trade to Guatemala.
While there is not a great deal of tourist sites per se, it is definitely worth spending a day exploring the city.
Private transportation for up to 12 passengers is $100.00 round trip.
