Sign up for information to the left.
Travel photography is focused around the Giant Kite Festival that takes place on All Saints' Day, the first of November 2018. I've planned three main focuses for this trip. The festival, the photogenic Lake Atilan and a visit at the boy's ranch.
After our meet-and-greet, some time in Antigua, and photography talk, we'll head out for the Kite festival. These spectacular kites are as tall as a three-story building. Their makers will fly them in the sky in honor of those who have died. It's a 3-day celebration beginning October 31on the Day of the Dead but in Guatemala the main celebration in the first of November and renamed All Saint's Day. Earth is represented by the making of delicious tamales and the savory Guatemalan corn drink called "Elote en Dulce". Air and Wind are represented through the giant rainbow colored paper kites.
ARRIVAL. We will pick you up at the main airport at determined times and drive 45 minutes to the colonial town of Antigua. We kickstart our trip with three nights in the bustling colonial UNESCO World Heritage site and near to where the Kite Festival will be held.
We are always flexible to your needs and to the rhythm of the Guatemalan people. We stick to our agenda as much as possible but will be flexible to be in the best place at the right time.
