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

Craig · Traveled June 2024
This is a great trip into the past of Mayan history. See some of the great Mayan temples and learn about their history, culture and architecture. A must do trip!

Maya Encounter

Loretta · Traveled June 2024
Our Maya Encounter of 17 days was excellent. Fidelio, our guide was the best leader in our many many trips- well organised, fun, and inclusive. Highlights were snorkelling at Caye Caulker, ruins at Tikal NP and arts at San Juan. Our group of 16 was of mixed ages and connected well. We are keen to book more with Intrepid.

Maya Encounter

Maxwell · Traveled June 2024
Our trip leader was great, our group was great, the transport and the ease of moving around visiting some great places that I might not have visited alone I always recommend travelling solo, but this group trip was an amazing way to break up some backpacking
