Signature Guatemala and Belize: Culture and Caribbean

15 days from £2789pp
 

Private Journey

 

This two-week private tour combines two countries which couldn’t be more different. Guatemala is steeped in native Mayan 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 one experience-packed holiday.

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