Guatemala Tours & Vacations

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

This coffee-growing, lava-flowing, jungle-clad land definitely doesn’t hold back with colour – think retro chicken buses cruising down the highway, pastel-washed colonial 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.

Guatemala to Belize

Ashley · Traveled February 2023
This was a great trip from start to finish. Although there weren't many inclusions, there were tons of options provided by our leader Fidelio. The transport was good and comfortable, and the areas visited were fantastic - I was able to cross many things off my list.

Maya Encounter

Joette · Traveled February 2023
I love traveling with Intrepid. Its the perfect blend of independent travel and tour lead. It’s reassuring to know all travel days and transfers are organized for you. And if something should go wrong, the tour guide will work hard to come up with a plan B, C, or D while you continue to explore and enjoy the trip. I love arriving in a new town and immediately knowing something about the traditions, customs, history and offerings. The guides always take advantage of travel time and use it as time to share information and answer questions. The benefit of traveling with a group is that others will ask questions you didn’t even know you needed answered.

Guatemala to Belize

I loved my tour with Intrepid! It had a perfect balance of included activities, optional activities and free time you could choose from. The best feature of Intrepid is that they always employ local guides and this makes such a difference when looking to get the most out of the destination!

Maya Encounter

Nuno · Traveled January 2023
It’s a wonderful trip specially if you have the luck of having Victor as your tour leader and a wonderful group of energetic and positive people as I got. I made friends for life. Felt the luckiest guy on earth. Of course you need to have a certain spirit of adventure and adapt your quality sense to some of the places where you will stay. Some of the hotels are on the limit of acceptable . This would be the only minus aspect of all the trip. The home stay in Guatemala was an unforgettable experience of humbleness and gratefulness to the wonderful family that accommodate me. Something you will never forget. Not for a single moment I regret my decision on making this trip. Thank you Intrepid!
