Guatemala & Belize Highlights

Guatemala & Belize Highlights

Guatemala & Belize have so much to offer the nature loving traveller, who is seeking to discover marine as well as terrestial wildlife. Added to this, there is the rich Mayan heritage, which is more alive in Guatemala then anywhere else in Central America, with traditional lifestyles, authentic markets and ancient cities.

This incredible 15 day itinerary begins in Antigua, one of Latin America’s oldest and loveliest colonial towns and travels through the beautiful  scenery of Lake Atitlan to the stunning Mayan site of Tikal in Guatemala. Then crossing the border into Belize,  which is now one of the world’s leading ecotourism destinations and also offers swathes of untouched rainforest, endless savannah, mangroves and the most amazing coral reefs in the western hemisphere.

On this tailor-made tour we have suggested a handful of the exceptional jungle lodges and small hotels that are available in these two countries. All the included tours will be led by the very best local guides, all of whom have lots of experience and first class training. The culture and nature of these wonderful countries are part of their lives, so they are the best people to make sure that you have the best possible experience.
