Guatemala Easter Week Tour
© Debbie Jefkin-Elnekave
When you enter Guatemala , you enter a magical world full of color, native crafts and captivating ethnic communities. A stroll around the churches, ruins and other architectural jewels evokes the splendor of Spanish colonial times. But thatís just the beginning. The trip is scheduled to coincide with the Easter Week Processions. Although the people are Christian, the Mayan civilization left behind a deep spiritual imprint that is apparent in the processions. Throughout the week we bear witness to a wonderful confluence of Mayan and Christian traditions. For anyone interested in religious and cultural ceremonies, this trip is a must. It will leave you humbled and awed by the devotion of the Guatemalan people.
