Guatemala Tours & Holidays

Bienvenidos! Welcome to Guatemala – a land of ancient civilisations, steamy jungles and laidback locals.

This coffee-growing, lava-flowing, jungle-clad landscape definitely doesn’t hold back when it comes to colour – think retro chicken buses cruising down the highway, pastel-painted buildings lining the cobbled streets of historic Antigua and vibrant wares on sale at market stalls in Chichicastenango. And whether you’re cruising down the Rio Dulce to Garifuna-influenced Livingston, strolling around the quaint island of Flores in Lago Peten Itza, or trekking to the Maya ruins of Tikal, your Guatemalan adventure will unlock all but one of its highland secrets – how this Central American beauty is still largely undiscovered will continue to remain a mystery.

Maya Encounter

Bethany · Traveled January 2024
Trip of a lifetime! Central America is so diverse and a joy to explore. From wildlife to climbing temples at Tikal, caving, snorkelling in Belize, volcanoes and authentic encounters with Maya communities we did so much and I loved every minute. Expect to be tired by the end! If you get Aquilino as your leader you are very lucky and will come away with a deep understanding and love of Guatemala.

This takes you to some great locations with a reasonable level of comfort. Activities are expensive but the food is good and safe in most places. Border crossing were easy.
