DIA DE LOS MUERTOS & GIANT KITE FESTIVAL

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS & GIANT KITE FESTIVAL

Experience one of the world's most culturally vivid tradition and festival. Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and the All Saints Day Kite Festival is celebrated on November 1 in Guatemala. Tracing back to ancient Maya culture, the festival remembers lost loved ones amongst family. Elaborate and intricately detailed kites are created to fly in local cemeteries throughout the country with messages attached to the kite's tail for the loved ones. It is said, "the higher the kite is in the sky, the closer the message is to the spirits of those in heaven."

B.G.T. & SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

Bella Guatemala Travel is committed to a sustainable approach to tourism. This means that neither the natural environment nor the socio-cultural fabric of the host communities will be impaired by our visit. On the contrary, the natural environment and local communities should benefit from tourism, both economically and culturally. Sustainable tourism also respects local people, the traveler, cultural heritage and the environment. It offers an exciting and educational travel experience that provides a positive impact on the society and economy.
