About Guatemala

Best of Guatemala & Mexico Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Antigua

Declared a World Heritage site due to its well-preserved buildings, Antigua is a bewitching city sheltered between three volcanoes with wonderful food and atmospheric streets.

Day 3 Rio Dulce

With a name meaning ‘sweet river’ in Spanish, picturesque Rio Dulce is known for its unique lifestyle and calm waters. Sitting on the shores of Lake Izabal, it attracts boaters from around the world, venturing to or from the Caribbean coast. Spend an afternoon by the water’s edge soaking up the relaxed atmosphere of this inviting township.

Day 4 Flores

Located on an island in Lake Peten Itza, Flores is a wonderful place to explore with its red roofs, historical buildings and cobblestone streets. Once a powerful Mayan city, Tikal was abandoned in the 10th century and sank into the surrounding jungle. It's now alive with jungle wildlife and awe-inspired visitors.

Days 5-6 Tikal/San Ignacio

A friendly place with a multicultural feel, San Ignacio is a wonderful base to explore the gorgeous countryside that surrounds the town.

Days 7-9 Caye Caulker

A small island with no cars, white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters, Caye Caulker is an idyllic place to while away some time and soak up the very relaxed vibe.

Days 10-11 Tulum

Sitting on a cliff with views of an azure ocean, Tulum not only has spectacular Maya ruins to discover but some of Mexico's finest beaches to frolic on.

Days 12-13 Playa del Carmen

With azure waters, powdery beaches and a European feel, Playa del Carmen is a resort city close to Cancun but without the party atmosphere.
