Guatemala Tours & Vacations

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

This coffee-growing, lava-flowing, jungle-clad landscape definitely doesn't hold back when it comes to color – 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

Stephanie · Traveled January 2024
With a thoughtful itinerary included activities that would be hard for an independent traveller, and a group leader who was a passionate ambassador for his home country and how our visit could support local communities, this trip was a wonderful introduction to the beautiful countries of Belize and Guatemala.

Maya Encounter

Alan · Traveled January 2024
A trip for anyone keen on organised lazing about in the waters of the Caribbean. Combine such a trip with a visit to the Parque National de Tikal to see Mayan pyramids and a visit to another of the treasures of Guatemala the city of Antigua.

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.
