Semana Santa in Guatemala | Good Friday Tour

Traditional processions are a big focus of Holy Week festivities, which take place on Good Friday and are one of the richest cultural experiences you can enjoy. This is a passionate sensory experience that mingles Spanish and Mayan traditions and is an event that truly represents the heart and soul of Guatemala.

The streets of Santa Catarina Palopó and San Antonio Palopó, Guatemala turn into a canvas which are adorned with intricate and aromatic carpets (alfombras) of vibrant and beautiful flowers, pines, sawdust, and fruits as giant carved floats (andas) sway on the back of local men and women as small processions wind their way through the town’s streets.

If you have never been to Guatemala during the Easter processions then you are in for an experience of a lifetime. This multi-sensory experience will immerse you in culture, history, and the majestic beauty of Guatemala as you see, hear, smell, touch, and taste everything Guatemalan.

Space is limited for this Semana Santa in Guatemala | Good Friday Tour so please book early.
