Tours Atitlan and Pedro turned my dreams into reality. I went by myself to Lake Atitlan for 5 days hoping to see some hummingbirds and pick up some local art. Before leaving I found TA and Pedro and after a few emails I booked 2 days with him.
The 1st day was for hummingbirds – he arranged all transport (boats and vans) to 2 reserves where we saw and photographed 9 different species of hummingbirds and saw many other kinds of birds in the process. Pedro who is an excellent birder in his own right, arranged for a local park guide with scopes through which I took some great shots with my cameras. We also had a wonderful private luncheon at the reserve with Pedro, the park guide and our driver – I learned so much more from them.
The 2nd day was modern Mayan culture in San Juan – artists, weavers and herbs and Santiago – the largest city on the lake, home of Maximon and wonderfully exciting. Again private boat trips to the locations from the dock at my hotel. It seemed like everyone not only knew but genuinely like Pedro as we safely walked the streets of the cities from the docks. He was extremely knowledgeable and proud of the Mayan history and again followed it up with a great lunch in Santiago where we saw 3 more hummingbirds.
I was so happy with the 2 days that I booked a 3rd day to see the ancient ruins in Iximche – again all was arranged and Pedro had hours of stories to explain what I was looking at and the original history thru the conquest of the site.
My trip was a great success and memorable due to Pedro and his team.
