Day of The Dead: Kite Festival from Guatemala City or Antigua

1 day
About this activity
We are starting our day departing from your hotel in Guatemala City or Antigua to Sumpango, Sacatepéquez near Antigua.

Upon arrival to Sumpango, your guide will take you to the cemetery where people have cleaned, painted and decorated family graves, neighbors fondly remember the deceased, and catch up on the latest news. Every year tourists and residents gather at the foot ball field next to the cemetery, commemorating the day of the dead, being through this contest and festival highlight where the comets are raised.

Community bonds are renewed and strengthened as people work closely together, sharing paint, tools and brushes for the renovation of the graves, while the flowers of water, pray and picnic together. They spend a good time.

You will have time to admire the giant kites that people of the community make to celebrate this festival every year while your guide will tell you more about this annual tradition. Join us to enjoy a unique and colorful experience of one of the most special traditions of Guatemala.

During the tour we will have time for lunch at a local restaurant (not included).

When finished, we'll transfer back to your hotel in Guatemala City or Antigua.
