Top destinations in Koh Samui

What can you see in Koh Samui: Although Samui has several waterfalls, the two Na Muang waterfalls are probably the most picturesque. The name Na Muang refers to the massive purple rocks at the waterfalls. Rocks and tree roots form a natural staircase that leads to the base of Na Muang 1. A large natural pool sits under the waterfall. A 10-minute walk further up the mountain leads to Samui’s most beautiful waterfall, Na Muang 2.

Ang Thong National Marine Park is a pristine archipelago of 42 islands in the Gulf of Thailand. It features towering limestone mountains, thick jungle, white-sand beaches, waterfalls and hidden coves and lakes to explore. The protected area of more than 100 sq km of land and sea has a rich biodiversity. Snorkelling, hiking, sea kayaking, diving, and simply relaxing are the main activities to enjoy at Ang Thong. Most Ang Thong visitors arrive on a join-in day trip or by boat charter from Koh Samui or Koh Phangan. For those who wish to stay overnight, there are simple bungalows and camping tents available on Koh Wua Ta Lap. The Park Headquarters also hosts a simple restaurant. Even with its increasing popularity, the islands have maintained their picture-postcard appeal. Only one of its islands, Koh Paluay, is inhabited. It’s home to a sea-gypsy community that largely maintains its traditional fishing lifestyle. See more details on Koh Samui Tours.

If you have been in Thailand for a while you would have seen many an ancient temple, this one is fairly new but it still uses the techniques that have been in place for hundreds of years. The feature of the temple is an 18 arm statue of Guanyin, Guanyin is the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion. This living and working temple has a lot of visitors daily who pay homage to both Buddha and Guanyin. The temple is surrounded on all sides by a lake and if you make a donation to the temples coffers you will receive a bag of fish food to feed those that live in the lake.

More Thailand attractions: Bangkok is an awesome place to visit. We will talk about Bangkok attractions and especially the floating market Bangkok. Known locally as JJ Market, Chatuchak Weekend Market is the largest of its kind in Thailand. Some even say it’s the largest weekend market in the world. With more than 8,000 stalls peddling wares ranging from antiques to clothes to furniture, the wildly popular market draws in more than 200,000 people on weekends and includes a wide array of tasty restaurants. Shoppers are also entertained by shows, including dancing and live music.

Luong Pordaeng was a Buddhist monk and in 1973 he died whilst in the seated meditative position, it was decided that his body would be preserved and he has been on display in a glass case ever since, forty years later the body is still in excellent condition with no signs of degradation at all. Unlike westerners most Buddhist Thais are not frightened of dying as they believe it to be one step closer to enlightenment, seeing the dead body gives them something to reflect on. The body is stored in the Wat Khunaram temple and local people visit the temple daily to pray and make merit, visitors are very welcome to come and look around the temple. Explore additional info on

Top travel locations to visit in Riviera Nayarit

Puerto Vallarta attractions? The beaches of Banderas Bay are home to several nesting areas for sea turtles, and during the hatching season from June through November each year, visitors can watch as baby turtles hatch from their shells and make their way to the ocean. Four protected species nest along the coast of Nayarit, including leatherback and Oliver Ridley turtles, and many of the hatchings often take place right outside the resorts on Banderas Bay. However, while sea turtle eggs would normally incubate in the sand for around 45 days, recreational activities on the beaches have posed a greater risk to their safety, and the local hotel industry has taken an active role in protecting and conserving the hatching process for over 30 years. As a result, resort guests are invited to release baby turtles during the hatching season. The largest number of these hatchling release events take place in November but are available at a select number of resorts from June through December.

More Mexico attractions: Another destination that is closely associated with Cancun is the lovely Isla Mujeres (the Island of Women). About 13 kilometers from the mainland and just a short hydrofoil ride from the pier at the convention center (Cancun Center), this long skinny island – it’s just seven kilometers long and 650 meters wide – is particularly popular among surfers for the larger waves experienced on its east coast, while divers love the abundant marine life surrounding its numerous coral reefs. It’s also popular with beachgoers who enjoy the less hectic pace: traffic on the island is limited to taxis and buses, all of which are vastly outnumbered by golf carts and scooters. Isla Mujeres is also a popular day trip destination for those staying elsewhere on the Maya Riviera thanks to its many fine restaurants offering excellent views over the water to Cancun.

The excitement begins with a speedboat ride over the beautiful waters of Banderas Bay and takes you to a secluded ocean cove full of experiences designed to turn your world upside down. There, you’ll find one-of-a-kind natural water parks designed to test your courage and the limits of your stamina plus other fun activities to stir your senses. You can zip line at mind-bending speeds into the ocean. The Step-Up lets you test your fear of heights in a challenge that requires agility and concentration. Experience mind-bending speeds on a watercraft unlike any other! Thriller is a high-speed boat propelled by a roaring jet of pressurized water that can pull off moves impossible for other boats. From hair-raising hairpin turns to high-speed drifting to intense 360° spins, this ride will take your breath away. Find additional details on Riviera Nayarit Tours.

Additional Mexico attractions: Punta Sur: Punta Sur is located on the southern tip of Isla Mujeres. Here you can visit the Pre-Colombian Mayan Ruins of Ixchel, or simply admire the stunning views. Garrafon Reef Park is also located here and is home to the Sculpture Garden. In 2001 the Sebastian Foundation and 23 famous artists from Mexico and around the world created sculptures to represent the Mayan civilisation. There are different packages available for Garrafon Park click here for further information. These packages also include activities such as zip-lining, snorkelling and kayaking. Walk Around Centro & Admire The Sea Wall Murals: As responsible travellers, we’re all for the preservation of our world’s ocean and we were delighted to see the ‘Sea Wall Murals’ of Isla Mujeres. These murals were created by various top street artists from around the world to raise awareness of marine species threatened by extinction in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.

Kalymnos attractions and top destinations selection

Kalymnos travel attractions with villa rentals: Sports enthusiasts and outdoor activities will find Kalymnos a fabulous destination, this days it has become very popular for people who like rock climbing, water sports, trekking, and scuba diving – the island is one that offers amazing experiences and thrills.

Kalymnos is also famous for the local divers who venture daily into the waters to collect the beautiful sea sponges from the seabed. One lovely aspect of the landscape of Kalymnos is that it is surrounded by numerous small islets such as Telendos, Agia Kyriaki, Pserimos, and Imia. Visitors to Kalymnos have the opportunity to visit some of these small islands and enjoy the remote and isolated beaches that you will find along their coastlines. There are small boats that visitors can take from the port to these small islets.

Given its relatively mild weather and the existence of numerous beaches, Kalymnos is a great place for sunbathing. Though the island is adorned with an infinite number of beautiful beaches, some two particularly stand out. These are the Masouri Beach, Sikati, On the Rocks, and Melitsachas Beach. They are relatively clean, less crowded, appropriately sheltered from direct exposure to the adverse weather elements, and experience an unconstrained supply of fresh air. Moreover, they have several shades nearby. These offer excellent opportunities for you to sit and relax with your spouse. This area experiences limited fluctuations in environmental conditions year-round. It is hence a good place to come to sunbathe in during the harsh winter months that the continental Europe experiences. Find a few extra info at Greece vacation home rental with private pool.

The capital of the island is the town of Pothia. Here is one of the most important cultural centers of the island, the Historical Museum. It would be difficult to explore its rich collection of artifacts at once; during a tour around the museum visitors would learn about the most important historical events. The amazing Church of Christ the Savior is situated in the capital. That’s an incredibly beautiful building with refined interior. While sightseeing in the capital, you should definitely take a look at one of the old sponge processing plants to get acquainted with the main harvesting of islanders.

As the third largest of the Dodekanese islands, Kalymnos is no stranger to tourist crowds. The influx of people flocking to the island during tourist season isn’t as high as on some of the other islands in Greece, which means that the crowds are lively but not too overwhelming. Besides that, it is one of those beautiful islands that can give you a sampling of what the Greek islands are all about. There are more than enough places to visit. The trick is finding the ones that will make your vacation as great as it could be.

The Villa at Kastelli Bay is one of the very few vacation rentals in Kalymnos that is on the water. The property is a pleasant retreat away from crowds but conveniently located just one mile from the popular town of Massouri where you can enjoy restaurants, tavernas, cafes, bars, shopping and public beaches. The residence can comfortably accommodate a total of 8 persons. The home is comprised of the main villa and an attached studio and offers all the comforts of home. The main rental unit has 2 floors, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and can accommodate up to 6 persons. The independent, attached studio is on the upper floor, has its own entrance, a queen size bed, a fully equipped kitchenette, and en-suite bathroom and can accommodate an additional 2 persons.

Top places to see in Vietnam

You must see Vietnam at least once and bike tours: The formerly little-inhabited beach south of the fishing village of Mui Ne has seen some serious development in the last 15 years. Due to strong sea breezes it is a popular destination in Vietnam for kite- and windsurfing. No trip to Mui Ne is complete without a trip to the famous sand dunes located a short distance north of the town. The vast sandy expanse provide some great panoramic views especially during sunset.

Vietnam’s capital is the frenetic heartbeat of the nation and a place that befuddles travelers as much as it charms them. The motorbike frenzy, pollution, and constant clamor of street vendors can get too much for some travelers, but if you want to dive into Vietnamese city life, Hanoi is the place to do it. The old town quarter has plenty of dilapidated charm on offer, while history fans should make a beeline here simply to see the bundle of excellent museums. The Vietnam Museum of Ethnology and Vietnam Fine Art Museum are both brilliant introductions to the diverse artistry of the country, while the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is an important tribute to the founder of modern Vietnam.

We suggest that it might be the cheapest way to rent a motorbike and discover Vietnam in your own way. Though, you need to control and handle things that can happen by yourself including bike service, maintenance, finding the best roads, and accommodations. And getting lost seems to be an inevitable part but do not worry, we will equip you with the GT Rider tour maps when choosing the self-guided motorcycle tour option. With accurate and constantly updated schedules, you neither have to worry about bad situations like getting lost, running out of gas nor finding a hotel/restaurant. In case, you want to save your budget but fail to manage things, finally, you waste your money. Explore additional details on Vietnam motorbike tours.

Attractions in Vietnam are plentiful, ranging from stunning natural landscapes, untouched islets and quaint villages to war museums, colonial structures, and ancient citadels. The Cu Chi tunnels, located outside Ho Chi Minh City, represent the sheer grit and ‘can-do’ attitude of the Vietnamese while a visit to the War Remnants Museum brings home the horrible reality of war. On the more positive side, the marvellous Hue Monuments, along with the My Son Sanctuary will awaken your spiritual side. Attracting millions of visitors all year long, its colonial heritage also means that many hotels feature a unique blend of French and Asian influences while its cuisine is highly regarded as one of the best in the world. With so many things to see and do in Vietnam, planning your travel itinerary as a first-time visitor can be a challenge, so we’ve compiled a general list of Vietnam’s must-see attractions.

We were a group of 12 and did an 8-day Vietnam motorbike tour. The BM Travel team took amazing care of us and brought us to the best and hidden locations in Vietnam. We stayed in local homestay and ate amazing food. The off-road riding was epic and motorcycles worked perfectly. We’ll be going back for another round for sure! We were a large group with lots of requests. Binh and his team always provided an excellent service, even in the most difficult conditions (rain, mud, mechanical issues). We had a great time even off the bikes (Mot, ai, ba, dzo!) Motorcycle are recent Honda in good conditions. The video of our trip provided by BM Travel is of Hollywood quality. Explore extra info at

Magdalena del Mar, Lima attractions and top destinations selection

You must see Lima at least once: Begin at the Parque Municipal, an open space surrounded by colonial architecture. From there walk down Zapita, over Puente de Los Suspiros (Bridge of Sighs), and out to the cliff lookout. The private Museo de Arte Colonial Pedro de Osma is housed in the historic mansion Palacio de Osma. The museum’s exceptional collection of colonial art from around Peru includes paintings, sculptures, metalwork, stonework, silver, and furniture.

Head to Museo Larco for, of all things, some erotic pre-Columbian pottery. The museum is located in an 18th-century building and has a large archaeological collection, including a lot of Peru’s pre-Colombian art, but it is most famous for its collection of erotic pottery. There are also changing temporary exhibitions. At the Miraflores boardwalk you can paraglide over the upscale beach city and the Pacific Ocean. If the sun is out, you’ll have a beautiful view of the Pacific and of Lima’s beach neighborhoods. It cost around $70 for 10 minutes.

While beaches such as Mancora further north in Peru are better known for their waves, Lima’s Costa Verde has some surprisingly good spots for surfing. La Herradura, south of Barranco, is considered one of the best, with its powerful left break and a swell that can reach up to four meters, making it only for those with experience. Waikiki, in Miraflores, is a good option for beginners, particularly as there are some schools where you can learn the ropes. It’s also home to the Waikiki Club, which started up in the 1920s, making it one of the world’s first surf clubs.

The Magdalena Market (on the streets Galvez and Bolognesi, just west of Sucre) fills up in the evenings with young couples and families. If you’re looking for discounted clothes, shoes and movies, forget about overpriced, touristy Polvos Azules (near downtown): Magdalena’s Market is the place the locals get them. The market is open daily. The best time to go for fresh produce is in the morning, but the best time to go for people-watching and clothes shopping is in the evening when the rest of the neighborhood goes out to promenade in the market’s boulevard. Discover more pictures of this incredible ocean view penthouse on FB. Need a place to rent in Lima, Peru? See even more info at Amazing penthouse in Lima, Peru with full ocean view.

The Museo Larco is a must-see for travelers interested in pre-Columbian art. The private museum, founded by Rafael Larco Herrera, is located in an 18th century building that was built over a seventh century pyramid. The museum’s collections, representing 5,000 years of Peruvian history, are arranged chronologically. The museum’s total collection numbers thousands of pieces. It is especially famous for its collection of pre-Columbian erotic pottery, which includes humans performing sex acts not only with each other but with gods and the dead. Equally impressive is the Gold and Silver Gallery, which includes objects such as funeral masks and jewelry worn by priests and rulers.

World attractions, top destinations selection and flight booking

World attractions and how to find the best flight ticket: Morocco has plenty of beautiful old town areas but Rabat’s Oudaias Kasbah neighborhood has to be one of the country’s most picturesque. This is a peaceful and perfectly quaint district that feels miles away from the city, despite being right in the city’s core. Inside the walls of this old fortress, the lanes of neat white-and-blue houses rimmed by colorful flowerpots and flapping washing have a lost-in-time atmosphere that’s hard to beat. Even better, unlike the old town areas of Fes and Marrakesh, there are hardly any other tourists here, so exploring this pretty corner of the capital feels as if you’ve been let in on a well-kept secret.

The old Belle Epoque Orsay train station was converted into the Musee d’Orsay in 1986 to house one of the world’s largest collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. Aside from works by Monet, Renoir, van Gogh and Toulouse-Lautrec, you’ll find a dapper collection of decorative arts from the Art Nouveau era and a wide range of 19th-century sculpture. Digest it all with a coffee in the cafe behind the museum’s giant transparent clock.

Italy has an extensive Mediterranean coastline, speckled with unbelievable islands, beaches, and beautiful towns. Sailing around southern Italy is always a popular choice for European cruise holidays. What makes this area even better is its close proximity to Greece – allowing you to include both countries easily into your sailing itinerary. As Italy has a rather lengthy coastline, the different destinations each offer something completely unique. Some of the best places to visit in Italy for a sailing holiday include Sardinia, Amalfi, the Aeolian Islands, the Sorrentine Peninsula, and Sicily. The Cinque Terre is another great coastal destination for those interested in sailing further north.

On cliffs above the ocean, just south of central Lima, Miraflores is a neighborhood of modern glass-and-steel commercial buildings mixed with some fine old colonial homes and lots of green space. Here is where you’ll find smart shops and restaurants serving the “New Peruvian” cuisine that’s drawing worldwide attention in culinary circles. Beautiful parks and green spaces stretch along the cliff tops overlooking the water, and it’s common to see hang gliders drifting from the cliffs, above surfers in the waves below. Expect slightly higher prices in this more affluent neighborhood. Museo Amano houses a private collection of Peruvian ceramics and textiles, arranged chronologically. Although Pre-Columbian cultures, including Chimu and Nazca, are well represented, Museo Amano is best known for its remarkable collection of textiles from the less-known Chancay culture of the northern coast. Tours must be booked in advance.

Drukgyal Dzong: This dzong is now merely a picturesque ruin sitting on the hillside in the upper part of the Paro District. It is thought that this monastic fortress was probably built in 1649 to commemorate and celebrate victory over an invading force from Tibet. Sadly, the structure was decimated by a fire in the 1950s.

World attractions

World attractions: Antigua was once the capitol city of Guatemala, up until the year 1773 when a massive earthquake decimated the town. In 1776, it was ordered abandoned and what had once been a buzzing and vibrant capitol city took on the aura of a quiet provincial town. Known for its old-world style Spanish architecture by way of palaces, cathedrals, universities and hermitages, Antigua is a charming jewel in Guatemala. The Santa Catalina Arch in Antigua has become a visual cue to let everyone know that they’ve arrived. The city is a particularly popular tourist attraction during Holy Week, with parades and floats and carpets of flowers lining the streets. It’s absolutely breath-taking.

The Fondation Louis Vuitton’s 11 ultra-sleek galleries opened in the Bois de Boulogne in 2014. Since then, Frank Gehry’s astonishing building has played host to a rotating programme of shows by high-profile modern and contemporary artists. One of the more risque contenders on the Parisian cabaret scene, the art du nu of Le Crazy Horse was pioneered by Alain Bernadin in the 1950s, and still pulls in punters aplenty. It remains dedicated to all things feminine and sexy: lookalike dancers with curious stage names like Enny Gmatic and Hippy Bang Bang all bear the same bodily dimensions. (When standing, the girls’ nipples and hips are all the same height – it’s a requirement.) Expect lots of rainbow-hued light and artfully located strips of black tape. Old-school, self-respecting cabaret.

Here are some of the top cruising destinations around Europe that you should definitely consider experiencing. When it comes to European yacht holidays, destinations don’t get much better than Greece. This country is known for its magnificent Mediterranean coastline, stunning islands, and historic port towns. You can explore beautiful blue coves, dock at private white beaches, and hop between the many different islands.

Kiku Lhakang: This is one of Bhutan’s oldest and most beautiful temples. It is located in Lamgong Gewog in the Paro District and is one of the most important religious sites in the country. The Jowo temple which is within this complex was built in the 7th century. In the 8th century, it is believed that Padmasambhava visited here and kept many secret religious treasures.

This mammoth gateway (which guards the entrance to Meknes’ Imperial City district from the medina) is noted for its stunning decoration. Meant as a monumental reminder of the sultan’s might, the Bab al-Mansour is a magnificent relic of Meknes’ glorious era as capital of Morocco. It’s widely regarded as Morocco’s grandest and best preserved gateway. Come in the late afternoon to photograph the gate in the soft light, then wander through Meknes’ small maze of a medina, which is a much more laid-back affair than the medina of nearby Fes.

For our dutch guests:

De kathedraal van Lima domineert de oostkant van de Plaza de Armas. De bouw van de oorspronkelijke kathedraal begon in 1535 en werd vergroot in 1564, naar het ontwerp van de kathedraal in Sevilla, Spanje. Het werd beschadigd door een aardbeving in 1687 en bijna vernietigd door de grote aardbeving van 1746, maar werd snel herbouwd tot zijn huidige uiterlijk. Zoek naar het uitstekende gebeeldhouwde koor, een gravure van Jezus in de kapel van Johannes de Doper en de altaren in de sierlijke Spaanse barokstijl die bekend staat als churrigueresque. Een met mozaieken versierde kapel bevat het graf van Francisco Pizarro, de stichter van Lima. Een klein museum voor religieuze kunst ligt aan de achterkant van de kathedraal, en op de binnenplaats is een zeer aangename theesalon.

De Fondation Louis Vuitton’s 11 ultrastrakke galerijen werden in 2014 geopend in het Bois de Boulogne. Sindsdien is Frank Gehry verbazingwekkend building heeft een wisselend programma met shows van spraakmakende moderne en hedendaagse artiesten gespeeld. Een van de meer gewaagde kanshebbers in de Parijse cabaretscene, het art du nu van Le Crazy Horse werd in de jaren vijftig ontwikkeld door Alain Bernadin en trekt nog steeds veel gokkers aan. Het blijft toegewijd aan alles wat vrouwelijk en sexy is: lookalike dansers met merkwaardige artiestennamen als Enny Gmatic en Hippy Bang Bang hebben allemaal dezelfde lichamelijke afmetingen. (Als je staat, zijn de tepels en heupen van de meisjes allemaal even hoog – het is een vereiste.) Verwacht veel regenboogkleurig licht en kunstig geplaatste stroken zwarte tape. Old-school, zichzelf respecterend cabaret.

Cruisen door het sprankelende water van Europa is een van de beste manieren waarop iedereen een vakantie kan doorbrengen. We dromen er allemaal van om te stoppen op charmante eilanden, nieuwe havensteden te verkennen, over de prachtige wateren te varen en de dromerige jachtlevensstijl te leven. Als u van plan bent om de beste jachtvakanties in Griekenland te boeken, of als u meer van Europa wilt verkennen, bekijk dan zeker enkele van deze bestemmingen. Het charteren van een jacht en zeilen tussen deze geweldige plaatsen zal resulteren in een van de best mogelijke vakanties!

Bezoek de centrale openbare bibliotheek van Los Angeles: de centrale openbare bibliotheek van Los Angeles weerspiegelt de architectuurmanie in Egyptische stijl die het land in de jaren twintig overspoelde, na de ontdekking van het graf van koning Tut. Ontdek fossielplezier: in La Brea Tar Pits in Hancock Park, de plaats van de rijkste ontdekking van fossielen uit de ijstijd ter wereld, zijn meer dan 100 ton versteende botten vertoond die meer dan 200 soorten zoogdieren, vogels, reptielen en vissen vertegenwoordigen. van plassen kleverig asfalt uit de prehistorie. Dit is een uniek favoriete bezienswaardigheid voor sightseeing in LA Ontdek extra informatie op deze website Flacco Reizen.

Helikoptervluchten boven Vic Falls – The Flight of Angels: een opwindende helikopter- of ULV-vlucht biedt het beste uitzicht op de beroemde Victoria Falls. Het uitzicht op de Smoke that Thunders (Mosi-oa-Tunya) en omgeving is spectaculair. Je ziet in de onderstaande video (ga naar 5 minuten om te kijken vanaf het opstijgen)! De spannende vlucht over de watervallen geeft je een vogelvlucht van de grootste laag vallend water ter wereld. Door in een kloof van 108 meter diep te turen, krijg je zeker perspectief op dit enorme natuurwonder. U kunt ook stroomopwaarts helikoptervluchten maken om van bovenaf wat wild te bekijken. “The Flight of Angels” dankt zijn naam aan de beschrijving van de waterval door David Livingstone toen hij hem voor het eerst zag. Hij noemde het een tafereel dat zo mooi was dat het “door engelen tijdens hun vlucht” bekeken moest zijn. Je kunt Flight of the Angels ook in een ULM doen. Dit is een langzamere trip waarbij de wind door je haren waait. Maar microverlichting boven Vic Falls zou opwindender zijn, vanwege de open cockpit, de kleinere afmetingen en de minder krachtige motor. High Wire-activiteiten – Zipline, Gorge Swing & Flying Fox: ga een stapje verder met de verhuurdraadactiviteiten bij Vic Falls. De tamste optie, de Flying Fox zipline-rit, is een goede plek om te beginnen. Schuif over de 200 meter brede kloof ongeveer 120 meter boven de vloer of de kloof. Voor deze gewaagde kabelglijbaan zit je vastgebonden aan een hoge draad (alsof je vliegt) of zit je in een harnas. Hoewel de Flying Fox minder huiveringwekkend is dan de andere high-wire-activiteiten, verhoogt het nog steeds je adrenaline-niveaus en levert het een prachtig uitzicht. Om de angstfactor nog een tandje hoger te zetten, probeer dan de langere zipline-rit die 425 meter over de kloof loopt en begint op ongeveer 120 meter boven de vloer van de kloof. Ze zeggen dat je snelheden tot 106 km bereikt met de Zip Line Ride, omdat deze schuin bergafwaarts loopt. Volgende niveau van durf – de Gorge Swing, zoals de Bridge Swing, maar springt van de 120 meter hoge rand van de kloof. Begin met een hartverscheurende vrije val van 70 meter voordat je 95 meter over Batoka Gorge slingert. Woohoo! Je kunt ook de zipline-ritten maken en de kloof slingeren om de spanning te delen.

Guatemala travel attractions and major festivals

Guatemala attractions: The enigmatic Mayan culture that still inhabits the highlands offers authentic experiences through unique religious syncretism. This syncretism is a mixture of the Catholic faith brought by the Spaniards and the Mayan beliefs that are present in the festivals and celebrations that natives develop during all year.

Major Festivals in Guatemala : Jueves de la Ascencion at La Laguna de Chicabal in Quetzaltenango. La Laguna Chicabal is a lime-green lake, at 2712 m, in the crater of the extinct volcano of the same name. The Mayas believed the waters are sacred, and it is thought that if you swim in the lake, you will get ill. Ceremonies of Maya initiation are held at the lake in early May (40 days after Good Friday), known as Jueves de la Ascensión, and it’s celebrated with traditional music, flowers, and prayers at the Lake. Be respectful of the tradition, and you should not take pictures.

November 1st All Saints Day. November first is among the most important days of the year in Guatemala. During this day, we commemorate the Day of the Dead. This is a special event during which cemeteries are frequented and ornamented in reminiscence of family and friends. This is a union of ancient pagan beliefs, as well as the Catholic customs introduced over by the Spaniards within the XVI and XVII centuries. During this time, two significant festivities occur “the horse races in Todos Santos Cuchumatan, Huehuetenango,” and also the giant kites in Santiago and Sumpango Sacatepequez. Discover extra information at Guatemala Vacations.

Other Guatemala attractions: Antigua Guatemala, most often referred to simply as Antigua, is one of the highlights of Guatemala and certainly one of the most beautiful cities in Central America. Set amid surrounding volcanoes, this former capital of Guatemala offers a unique glimpse of a city unblemished by modern day concrete buildings and high rises. Here, the cobbled streets are lined with lovely old colonial buildings, some of which show evidence of the earthquakes that have contributed to the city’s history. Everywhere in the old city center are grand churches and convents. While many of the buildings have been completely restored, some reveal cracks caused by past earthquakes, and some have been reduced to ruins. In many cases the ruins have been creatively incorporated into more recently constructed buildings, some of which are now hotels. The city has many interesting museums to explore, along with beautiful old convents that are open to visitors.

El Mirador was a major Mayan city that flourished from about the 6th century BC and abandonment at the end of the 9th century. The ruins of El Mirador were rediscovered in 1926 but received little attention due to its remote location deep in the jungle of northern Guatemala. Today the site remains largely covered by tropical jungle. Visiting El Mirador is not for the faint of heart. The village of Carmelita is the nearest point to the ruins that you can go by car. From there it takes a grueling trek of at least five days and four nights through the jungle with ants, ticks and mosquitoes that never relent.
