Will you hear the roar of howler monkeys echoing through the dense rainforest? Will you climb the age-worn steps of a vast Mayan pyramid? Will you lose yourself amongst the markets and restaurants of a great colonial city?
In Guatemala the answer is almost certainly ‘yes’ to all of the above. And more.
Ask one of our Guatemala country experts to suggest a tailor-made itinerary and you could trek through virgin rainforest, listening to cries of scarlet macaws and photograph exotic, black-backed toucans wearing multi-coloured waistcoats.
You will find yourself touching an ancient civilisation as you wander through the Mayan ruins of Tikal. You will undoubtedly lose yourself in Chichicastenango with its bustling, colourful market. And again, in amongst the faded gentility and muted tones of Antigua’s colonial buildings, with its superb local restaurants serving regional specialities.
Talk to one of our experts about a tailored holiday to Guatemala and you could find yourself taking a boat across Lake Atitlan with its three imposing volcanoes. Or celebrating with the throngs of worshippers watching the Semana Santa Easter parades.
Our experts can also arrange special treats, to show you the stunning Mayan pyramid temples, ball courts and stelae of the ruined city of Yaxha – its name is Mayan for ‘Green Waters’ – and have our guides arrange a sunset picnic on top of the temple.
