Guatemala is Central America’s most indigenous nation, with the majority of its people descended from the Maya. This makes it a fascinating cultural destination! And it is always a favourite with clients who return from a Central American journey! So, let me tell you more about my highlights of Guatemala! 

From vibrant local markets and colourful festivals to the fascinating syncretism of Maya and Catholic rituals, your clients will love Guatemala’s unique culture.

But for adventurers and thrill-seekers there is plenty on offer too! You can climb an active volcano to see lava oozing from the ground. Or hike from stunning Lake Atitlan to the colonial beauty of Antigua? And don’t forget the wealth of Maya ruins found in the northern part of the country. You may have heard about Tikal? But what about Yaxha or the remote ruins of Uaxactun? Our expert consultants can help you plan a truly unique experience for your clients, whatever their interest.

Perhaps my favourite part of Guatemala is Lake Atitlan, ringed by conical volcanoes.  During the day you can kayak across its waters or take a watertaxi and visit the many lakeside villages. A highlight is Santiago Atitlan where you can learn about the local Maya deity of Maximon.

If your clients are food fanatics, why not ask us about a local cooking class? Or perhaps they’re interested in the weaving, art and painting of the region? Whatever their passion, we will provide expert local guides for a really in-depth experience. 

Of course, Guatemala is just one of many amazing Central American destinations! Why not combine it with Mexico and Belize on a multi-country holiday like this one? Better yet, get in touch with one of our Travel Specialists and we will design a tailor-made holiday just for your clients!
