Adventure Life’s Dia de los Muertos Kite Festival Tour in Guatemala

Having received numerous positive reviews and industry accolades, Adventure Life offers travelers the opportunity to take eco-vacations to destinations spanning the globe. Reviews highly commend Adventure Life tours to various locations in Latin America, with many focused on cultural and historic places of interest. The one-week Dia de los Muertos Kite Festival Tour begins in colonial Antigua, the former capital of Guatemala. Participants initially explore the city’s historic Catholic churches and have a full afternoon to take bicycle tours and explore surrounding sights, such as macadamia nut plantations and the ruins of earthquake-decimated colonial edifices.

On day four, travelers explore the ancient Mayan sites and highland villages surrounding Lake Atitlan. They make a stop in San Juan la Laguna, which features a women’s handwoven textile cooperative and numerous other artisan workshops. Having toured the well-known market of Chichicastenango on day five, participants celebrate Dia de los Muertos on the sixth day in Sacatepequez. The town’s kite festival features myriad handmade kites vying for recognition as “most colorful” and “longest flying.” At the same time, tour participants experience celebrations throughout town and at the cemetery as a joyous remembrance of local ancestors.
