 Day 1: Friday, June 14, Guatemala City

Our flights take us to Guatemala City, the city of Eternal Spring. You can arrive anytime on this day. Upon arrival we will transfer and check into our deluxe hotel. (No meals included)


Day 2: Saturday, June 15, Guatemala City

A morning flight will take us to the awe-inspiring, Maya archaeological zone of Tikal, occupied from 600 BC to AD 750. This dense rain forest is considered by many to be the East Wilderness where the Nephites, under the direction of the military leader Moroni, built many fortified cities during the 1st century BC (see Alma 50:7-15). New evidence shows a strong relationship between Teotihuacan and Tikal at the close of the Book of Mormon history which resulted in the downfall of the Nephite nation. We will take a return flight to Guatemala City in the evening. (Breakfast, Lunch).


Day 3: Sunday, June 16, Guatemala City

After attending church with the local saints, we will visit the Guatemala LDS temple and then later, we will explore the archaeological zone of Kaminaljuyu, a place considered by many to have been the area where Nephi settled in the 6th century BC (see 2 Nephi 5:5-10). We will discuss Kaminaljuyu’s stela 10, an altar that dates to 147 BC and may suggest a transfer of kingship from King Noah to Limhi (see Mosiah 18 & 19). We will then visit an outdoor relief map as we orient ourselves to the geography of the Book of Mormon. (Breakfast, Dinner)


Day 4: Monday, June 17, Lake Atitlan

This morning we will check out of our hotel and bus to Antigua, the old Spanish capital of Guatemala. Several buildings date to the 16th and 17th centuries.  We will visit the jade factory prior to continuing on to Lake Atitlan.  En route, we will visit the Cakchiquel archaeological site of Iximche (corn as tall as trees) which was the location of early battles between the Maya and the Spanish conquerors in the 16th century. We will also pass by the village of Patzicia, almost entirely destroyed by the 1976 earthquake. We will recount the courage and faith of the missionaries and members of the Patzicia stake. We will continue on to Lake Atitlan. (Breakfast, Dinner)


Day 5: Tuesday, June 18, Lake Atitlan

Flanked by three dramatic volcanoes, Lake Atitlan has been a scenic retreat for over 2000 years. It has been proposed by many LDS scholars as a site for the Waters of Mormon where Alma organized the church of Christ in the first century BC (see Mosiah chapters 18 and 19). The day will consist of a cruise on the lake to see the area where an ancient city was covered by water. This city may have been Jerusalem mentioned in Alma 21:1 or it may have been one of the other cities mentioned in 3 Nephi 9:7. The afternoon will be free for shopping or relaxing or other available activities. A presentation on the historical literature of the Book of Mormon will be presented by your tour director in the evening. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)


Day 6: Wed, June 19, Tapachula, Mexico

After checking out of our hotel, we depart at 7:00 am and we will pick up Alma’s trail as we make our way through the wilderness to the Valley of Alma. Our journey will take us to Quetzaltenango, the second largest city in Guatemala and the location of the second temple in Guatemala. We will visit the village of Almolonga, renowned for its pure water and lush vegetable gardens, a place that may have been occupied by Alma and his followers (Mosiah chapters 23 & 24). We will then travel down from the highlands to the Pacific coast where we will cross the border into Mexico and check into our hotel in the nearby city of Tapachula. (Breakfast, Dinner)


Day 7: Thursday, June 20, Tuxtla Gutierrez

Today we will visit the archaeological site of Izapa. While visiting Izapa, we will see Stela 5, the “Tree of Life Stone”. This engraved stone dating back to 300 BC may depict Lehi’s dream as recorded in first Nephi. Following our visit of Izapa we will bus along the Pacific coast passing by the area of the “day and a half’s journey” as well as the areas of the cities of Melek and Ammonihah as we travel to the Chiapas valley, considered by many to have been the Land of Zarahemla where the Nephites had their headquarters for 550 years (See Omni 1:13-15 and Mormon 2:28-29).  (Breakfast, Dinner)


Day 8: Friday, June 21, Mexico City

We will begin our day with a visit to the archaeological zone of Chiapa de Corzo, a candidate for the city Sidom (See Alma 15:1-8). We will then take a boat ride through the majestic Sumidero Canyon on the Grijalva River, with walls towering 3000 feet above our heads. The Grijalva has been proposed as the River Sidon in the Book of Mormon. In the evening, we will fly to Mexico City, one of the largest cities in the world, where we will spend the last three nights of our tour. (Breakfast, Lunch)


Day 9: Saturday, June 22, Mexico City

Today we will visit the ancient ruins of Teotihuacan. Occupied from about 200 BC to AD 900, Teotihuacan was one of the largest populated cities in the world during its peak. The inspiring pyramids of the Sun and Moon attract millions of visitors to this most popular archaeological zone in Mexico. This may have been the great city built by King Jacob of the Gadianton Robbers (See 3 Nephi 7). We will return to Mexico City. (Breakfast, Lunch)


Day 10: Sunday, June 23, Mexico City

This morning we will attend church with a local ward. We will also see the Mexico City LDS temple. Finally, we will visit the National Museum of Anthropology, one of the most spectacular archaeological museums in the world. Touring the museum will provide us with an excellent review of our tour and expose us to many beautiful exhibits ranging from ancient pottery to gold and jade jewelry. We will return to the hotel for the night. (Breakfast, Lunch)


Day 11: Monday, June 24, Flights Home

Transferring to the Mexico City airport, we will check in for our flights home. Our journey to the Book of Mormon lands has come to an end, but we will take with us memories that will last a lifetime. (No meals included)
