Full Day Tour of San Juan del Obispo – $35/person
Just up Volcan Agua from Antigua, San Juan del Obispo is a picturesque town that overlooks Antigua. It’s also home to a number of interesting sights and things to do.
The tour kicks off with a fun ride on a chicken bus. It’s about 20 minutes up the hill and is something everyone should experience at least once.
The bus drops you off just steps from the first stop in town, the convent. This beautiful garden is set in a 1700’s church and nuns still make it their home. After touring the convent, you’ll have a chance to peek inside the church and check out the amazing views from the park.
Next up, you’ll be visiting the local chocolate factory, where you’ll see exactly how Guatemalan hot chocolate tablets are made and will have a chance to sample some yourself. Then it’s off to La Taberna for a tasty lunch (not included) before taking a tour of some of the local artisans.
Finally, you’ll head back to Antigua on the bus, finishing up a perfect day of exploring.
Tour price includes: Bus transport to and from San Juan del Obispo, entrance fees to all exhibits and the convent, as well as the chocolate factory. DOES NOT INCLUDE LUNCH.
Min. 3 people, includes walking on hills and cobblestones. Leaves from Antigua at 9 am, returns at 4 pm.
