Lake Atitlan Herbal Medicine 3-Day Tour

From the beginning of time, plants have played a significant role in human affairs, influencing medicine and healthcare. Participants will explore the medical gardens in San Pedro, San Juan, and San Marcos, meet with local indigenous healers, and learn about the history, cultivation and role medicinal plants play in health and healing.

See, smell, and taste the rejuvenating and healing powers of medicinal plants through interactive demonstrations and samplings.

This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen you connection to herbal medicine in a rich sensory experience in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

We will begin our exploration with a visit to a medicinal garden where we will meet with a local indigenous healer who uses the leaves, seeds, stems, bark and roots of herbs to treat illness and disease.   Walking in the aromatic medicinal garden you will be greeted by the fragrance of the herbs.  The garden is flourishing with some common herbs such as lemon grass and chamomile as well as many rare and little-known medicinal plants.

We will then travel to the adjoining village of San Juan La Laguna where we will visit a medicinal garden that is run by a local women’s cooperative.  You will have an opportunity to tour the gardens, learn about the herbs and their uses, as well learn about their belief in caring for the land with love, and without harming it by using pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
