Begins April 10 for 10 days
Laughing Planet Journeys and Photography kickstarts this special trip with focus around the colonial town Antigua and then we head up to lake villages around the massive beauty of Lake Atitlan. Our last night we’ll spend back in Antigua to celebrate Good Friday and photograph the incredible procession. It’s truly an amazing experience and definitely worth photographing.
ARRIVAL. On the 10th 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.
Photographing a sunrise above Lake Atitlan or paddling across the lake in the cool mornings with your camera are a few options available. 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.
