This trip is ideal for those wanting to get the best out of Guatemala and Belize at a fairly relaxed pace. Fly to Guatemala City where you will be transferred to the wonderful colonial city of Antigua. Here you will spend a few days exploring the historical sights and architecture before travelling west to Lake Atitlan. Lake Atitlan is stunning with its backdrop of volcanoes, and you can explore the tiny settlements dotted around the lake to get an insight into the Mayan traditions here. The journey then continues up to Flores to explore the most atmospheric of the Mayan ruins, Tikal, set deep in the jungle surrounded by tropical wildlife, before heading into Belize and the beautiful lush rainforest region of the Cayo District. End the trip with a few days relaxation on a beautiful beach on Ambergris Caye.
