The Lost Cities of the Almolonga Valley Tours

This tour is named for the Almolonga Valley, just to the west of Antigua, which was home of the 2nd capital of Guatemala, Ciudad Vieja. The old city met a fateful doom in 1541 as a result of a terrible mudslide released from the crater of the Volcan de Agua. The city disappeared in the valley between Agua, Fuego & Acatenango volcanoes and the exact site of the old city is the source of much debate.

  • Escape Antigua for the day and tour the countryside by mountain bike
  • See ruins one earthquake away from extinction
  • Visit Lorenzo’s experimental macadamia farm at Valhalla – a sustainable agriculture project
  • Explore the villages of Santiago Zamora and San Antonio Aguas Calientes, famous for their textiles and weavings

Old Town Outfitters is my happy place. You guys consistently exceed my expectations. I know it’s only been two times, but you are by far the leader in the pack when it comes to professionalism, safety, expertise and adventure! Billy was incredible. You are very lucky to have him as a guide. We had such a great time together, like we we were all put together for a reason. I will forever remember when we were nearly to the top and Billy looked at us and said – let’s touch the sky.
