Signature Guatemala: Mountains, markets and Mayan ruins

12 days from £2,332pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip

 

Private Journey

 

Guatemala is brimming with both obvious highlights and hidden attractions and we’ve packed loads of them in to this variety-packed holiday including Antigua, Lake Atitlán, Mayan Tikal and authentic markets in the remote, wildly beautiful western highlands.

Begin by exploring arty, volcano-framed Antigua, one of the continent’s most beautiful Spanish colonial cities, and move on to atmospheric and spiritual Lake Atitlán, fringed by volcanoes, all the while visiting traditional villages where the indigenous population wear community-distinctive clothing and weave intricate, vibrant textiles.  Continue into the wilder more remote region of the craggy Cuchumatanes mountains, and visit authentic, non-touristy markets trading in the produce of the richly fertile volcanic valleys. Finally fly to the vast complex of temples at Tikal, Central America’s most overwhelming abandoned Mayan city, its haunting pyramids shrouded in exotic bird and monkey-filled jungle.

You’ll mostly be staying in small, characterful colonial-style accommodation befitting the uniqueness of your environment.
