2019 Guatemala Trip


Join us October 30 for nine days. We begin in Antigua and then celebrate amazing mind-blowing, “All Saints’ Day” Mayan ceremony on November 1 in a local village. We’ll have a group photography session to make pictures as the locals fly hand-made kites that are as large as a two-story house. Mexico celebrates Day-of-the-Dead. Guatemala’s festival is All Saints’ Day.

Email and we’ll answer your questions.  We welcome beginners and advanced photographers. Your partner is always welcome to come and participate with a phone. We encourage friendships and variety. The last trip we had a poet and writer in the midst of photographers! I await your email.

Breathtaking Atitlán Lake in Guatemala. We’ll travel to the other side in a motorboat.

A Guatemalan storyteller and painter depicts the life of his parents and grandparents of his village. Finally at peace today but the past remains an important part of Maya history. 

 Activity Level - light to moderate We will walk around towns and village, some may be gravel or cobblestone.  Anyplace distant we drive or use tuk tuks.  Of course you can always choose to walk further or to sit something out at a local restaurant.  We get up in the morning and go out in the evening to get the best photos. 

Our intention and how we choose our hotels  through Laughing Planet Travel is to be intentionally giving photographers. We choose to stay at local hotels rather than corporate hotels.  All hotels have hot water, clean beds and food nearby. Some may even have kitchens for late night coffee drinkers.
