Vacations in Guatemala can feel more intrepid than journeys to other parts of Central America. In reality, our specialists will tell you that Guatemala is a safe, compact country to explore. Pockets of it — such as the mountain communities of the Western Highlands — have changed little in centuries. While we can suggest a tried-and-tested circuit for your Guatemala vacation, you might also like to explore less trodden destinations such as the Rio Dulce and Livingston, where Carib-influenced Garifuna culture beats to the sound of African-inspired drumming.

Weathered Maya temples rise at vertiginous angles above the jungle canopy at Tikal, in the north. To the southwest lies glassy, gaping Lake Atitlán with its backcloth of stratovolcanoes and Maya-speaking shoreline villages. And, close by is the venerable Spanish colonial city of Antigua. Our specialists will weave them all into a custom-made Guatemala trip, advising you on how to make the most of your time there.
