Join Kim from Island Fever Travel on a journey to Antigua, Guatemala which is home to the largest Easter celebration in the world in which the Passion, the Crucifix, and the Resurrection of Jesus are commemorated. The procession is rooted in Andalusian tradition and was brought over by Spanish missionaries in the 16th Century. The entire city takes part in the event, accompanied by travellers coming to experience the energy of Holy Week.

Island Fever Travel will once again be escorting a small group of guests to Guatemala during Easter (April 2018) in Antigua, as well as visiting Lake Atitlan and Chichicastengo. Though this is a religious time, this journey is not focused on religion but the people and places of Guatemala.
