Tecpán Market & Iximché Ruins

We start our day early to beat the traffic and stop for a filling breakfast at a restaurant overlooking the valley. Most tours bring you to the ruins of Iximché and let you wander, however, Due South Travels wants you to have a unique and unforgettable experience, which is why we stop in the village of Tecpán and first learn about the history of the town, and the textile industry. When we do visit Iximché, we are met by a community guide - someone who has Mayan heritage and loves to share the history of this very important site with you. Usually we are lucky enough to catch a Mayan spiritual ceremony taking place on the grounds of the ruins. You are returned to Antigua between 3 and 4pm.
