Easter Week PhotoTrip 2019
Begins April 12 for 10 days
Laughing Planet Journeys and Photography kickstarts this special trip with focus around the colonial town Antigua and Palm Sunday. We head up to lake villages around the massive beauty of Lake Atitlan. Together we’ll photograph an indigenous Mayan take of Easter in a small village. Our last days we’ll spend back in Antigua to celebrate Good Friday and photograph the incredible procession of Easter Eve. It’s truly an amazing and an experience that you’ll be telling stories about for years to come.
ARRIVAL. On the 12th of April we pick you up at the main airport at determined times and drive 45 minutes to the colonial town of Antigua. You get a chance to settle in for three nights in the bustling colonial UNESCO World Heritage.
After our meet-and-greet, you'll have time to wander through some of the colonial streets. Our first photography storytelling meet will be in Antigua.
If you have physical concerns send Sherrlyn a note and she'll give you some options. We get around in a private van, (maybe a short bus ride for the experience), motorboats and tuk tuks.
Options include Photographing a sunrise above Lake Atitlan or paddling across the lake in the cool mornings with your camera. You can choose your level of activity.
Because we keep our group small we often do many things together. But you can always choose to hang out in hammocks, visit cafes and roam streets to photograph. We don't want anyone to feel they can't go because of physical limitations so email and we can discuss if it's right for you or not.
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 we will be flexible so as to be in the best place at the right time. Guatemala doesn't always stay on our schedule.
