Itinerary

When does my tour start?

Iximche is a Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican archaeological site in the western highlands of Guatemala. The site's name, Iximche derives from the Mayan words "Ixim" (maize-corn) and "che" (tree), resulting in "Place of the Maize tree" Iximche was the main city of the Kaqchikel Mayan people, founded in the Razumiat Mountains by Kikab the great in A.D. 1470 and after the abandonment of Chaviar, (Chichicastenango). The city was governed by four lords, Tzotzil, Xahil, Tuchche and Acajal, who were in charge of all administrative and religious affairs, including war. You will feel powerful energy on this Mayan site as it is still in its original unrestored form.

The city reflects the strategy of the same cultural period that built on embankments surrounded by ravines for better defences. The constructs were made of stone, lime, sand and soil, plus perishable materials in the walls and roofs of houses and government offices.

The city of Iximché was partially destroyed due to it being betrayed by the Spaniards in their alliance against the Quiches, & was burned and looted. Iximché hosted the first town, founded by the Spanish in the colonial Kingdom of Guatemala in 1524, which had to be moved because of conflicts with the Cakchiquel.

During the tour of Iximché, guests will be given details of the Mayan culture, building systems, the breaking of the Maya worldview to the arrival of the Spaniards, their customs and traditions. Sometimes on ceremonies days, visitors can come and witness a real - Kaqchikel Mayan ceremony, which is part of the community of Maya history for more than three thousand years. On site, we will take a local guide who will read the nahual (protective spirit and guide) of two of the visitors and give advice about capturing energy from your body, and to find balance in your life.

As we end our tour we will enjoy a delicious meal included in the tour, over 2200 meters, in a restaurant with beautiful gardens and tranquillity of nature, and to the surprise of the guests, a sample of tropical fruits of the season.
