Explore and Relax Guatemala and Belize: Mayan temples and Caribbean beaches

12 days from £3301pp
 

Private Journey

 

This fortnight-long honeymoon combines two countries which couldn’t be more different. 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. It’s a real treat to be able to combine the two in a holiday which travels at a lazy pace: you are based in just three places, each so different from one another, staying in intimate but high quality properties where the attention is on premium service.

Start off in Antigua, Guatemala’s colonial masterpiece. From there, make a day-trip to Chichicastenango market and the serene setting of Lake Atitlán, encircled by volcanoes, handkerchief-sized fields and tiny indigenous villages. On to jungle-stifled Flores and a visit to Tikal, the vast Mayan ruined city where ancient temples and pyramids penetrate the rainforest canopy. Cross the border into Belize and round off the holiday at the sugar white beaches of low-key Placencia, maybe with a bit of snorkelling or scuba diving.
