Day 4: San Juan, Santiago and Santa Catarina (B,L) (Guide FD)

Guests will be met at their hotel by their local guide specialist in the Maya people for a lake tour by boat to visit some villages and see contemporary Maya life. In San Juan La Laguna we visit a women's cooperative where they still dye with natural dyes and weave with traditional methods. Guests will also visit the homes & studios of famous local naif painters before boarding the boat to continue onto Posada Santiago for lunch. From here we board local trucks for a bumpy, fun ride into town to see the Maya God – Maximon and perhaps chance to see local shaman performing a ritual. Then back in the boat to visit St Catarina Palopo before returning to your hotel.
