This amazing country property in Guatemala has everything you need to enjoy a long weekend with your partner, family or friends.


Finca El Zur is located just a short drive from the tourist hub of Antigua, but could not be any more different from the crowded, cobbled streets of the old colonial capital. El Zur gives you a chance to breathe clean country air as you relax in its beautiful surroundings.


The property is found in the foothills of the volcano Agua, providing an amazing backdrop to acres of coffee plants. Explore the area on foot, by bike or on horseback, stopping for a refreshing dip in the river to admire the lush green forest. Finca El Zur offers the only dedicated mountain bike facility in Guatemala, and boasts more than 40 kilometers of specially designed trails.

Even if you do not have time to go and stay at the Finca, you can book a daytrip from Antigua with Old Town Outfitters. The trip includes transport and mountain bike hire. If you are looking for a more tranquil experience, indulge in an afternoon of bird spotting; El Zur is home to more than 300 endemic species including the iconic quetzal, which lends its name to Guatemala’s currency.


For those who are looking for a slice of paradise within easy reach of Antigua and Guatemala City, Finca El Zur is a perfect option. There is nowhere else in Guatemala where you can feel so disconnected from the hustle and bustle of the city while still being within striking distance of the airport.
