Value Central America: Costa Rica, Guatemala and Belize

15 days from £3155pp

Private Journey


Visit 3 contrasting countries. Peaceful Costa Rica is famed for its national parks, coffee and eco-tourism.  Guatemala is steeped in indigenous and Spanish colonial tradition and religious mysticism. Belize, a truly Caribbean country, is English-speaking, utterly laid-back, and a popular destination for outdoor adventure enthusiasts.

Start off in Costa Rica, gaze down into a volcanic crater and explore the bird-filled cloud forest of the interior. Move on to Antigua, Guatemala’s colonial masterpiece, and continue to the serene setting of Lake Atitlán, encircled by volcanoes, handkerchief-sized fields and tiny indigenous villages.

On to Tikal, the vast Mayan ruined city where ancient temples and pyramids penetrate the rainforest canopy. Crossing the border into Belize, stay at a countryside lodge surrounded by tropical foliage rich in wildlife; enjoy the thrills and spills of outdoor activities, or just relax. Round off the holiday at the pearl white beaches of Caye Caulker in the Caribbean, maybe with a bit of snorkelling or scuba diving.
