Family Guatemala and Belize: Ancient temples and Caribbean isles

14 days from £2,384pp
 

Private Journey

 

This family holiday offers adults and children alike a range of experiences in two contrasting countries.  Guatemala is steeped in native Mayan indian 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. Kids will love spotting the howler monkeys in the jungle, clambering over the ancient pyramids and snorkelling in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea.

You start off in Antigua, Guatemala’s colonial masterpiece, and continue to the serene setting of Lake Atitlán, encircled by volcanoe and tiny indigenous villages. Head out onto the water in a kayak before continuing to Tikal. Children will marvel at the fantasy-style vast ruined Mayan city where ancient temples and pyramids emerge above the rainforest canopy; adults will find the Mayan history and culture fascinating.

Crossing the border into Belize, stay at a remote riverside cabin camp 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 Ambergris Caye, maybe with a bit of snorkelling.

What our experts say

Snorkelling on the Belize barrier reef was magical, like swimming in a giant tropical aquarium. Our (then-12-year-old son adopted the enamel-green and yellow and electric blue-striped parrot fish as a family favourite).
