Panajachel Day Hike in Cerro de Oro: Hill of Mayan Gold

3. Panajachel Day Hike in Cerro de Oro: Hill of Mayan Gold

Hike the elephant-shaped mountain of the Cerro de Oro in the Guatemalan rainforest, and learn the legend of the lost Mayan gold and how it eluded the Spanish Conquistadors. Located on the slopes of Atitlan Volcano, the small hill is the site of a Mayan altar, still used by shamans for fire ceremonies. It is also said to be home to a portal to the Xiballba (Underworld). During your hike you will visit the altar, and see evidence of recent volcanic activity. The Cerro de Oro was formed more than 5,000 years ago and takes the form of a reclining elephant that inspired the Sleeping Elephant character in “The Little Prince.” Walk through the shaded coffee plants of the surrounding plantations, looking for the abundant birdlife. Go to the village church, built from hand-hewn volcanic stone, and enjoy stunning views from the plaza. Then, relax with a delicious lunch at a private villa on the shores of Lake Atitlan, and dine surrounded by lush gardens. You are free to enjoy the facilities, including kayaking and swimming activities. Alternatively, relax in the sauna, play a game of badminton, or play billiards on the pool tables.

The tour was great. However, when we arrived we discovered that we had paid about 30% more than everyone else on the same tour who had booked locally. The value was still fine and worth what we paid, it was just frustrating to see that we had been charged that much more than all the others. The guide was great, very informative. The scenery breathtaking! An absolute paradise! Overall, I would go again... I would just wait to buy my tickets for the tour upon arrival.... maybe during a more busy time you need the reservations so you can ensure a spot... but that was not the case on this trip... for what it’s worth.
