Honeymoon in Guatemala and Belize: Volcanoes, lakes and desert islands

14 days from £3563pp

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 four 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, 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. Cross the border into Belize and round off the holiday at the pearl white beaches of Ambergris Caye, maybe with a bit of snorkelling or scuba diving.
