Indulge in a chocolate-making class in the place where chocolate was first invented. Then take a short flight to Flores and discover the natural wonders of Tikal National Park.

If you're up for more adventure, why not go tubing or canoeing, or if you'd prefer a bit of relaxation the butterfly garden is a colourful treat.
