Guatemala Off The Beaten Track

Blessed with outstanding natural beauty, Guatemala is a land filled with volcanic highlands, lush river valleys and dense tropical rainforests, liberally sprinkled with ancient Mayan ruins. Perhaps one of the most culturally rich destinations in Central America, it also boasts a strong national identity and a rich mix of indigenous traditions and lively markets.

Beginning in the captivating city of Antigua, you will have an opportunity to explore one of the loveliest colonial towns in the Americas and spend some time with the Mayan people who occupy the surrounding mountain villages. Passing through the historic market town of San Juan Comalapa, you then head for the picturesque setting of Lake Atitlan, a place steeped in Mayan traditional and ritual.

After a chance to explore the famous market of Chichicastenango you drive into the western highlands, where you can hike amongst some of the country’s most breathtaking scenery before turning east, towards the jungles and ruins of the central Guatemalan heartlands. Here you can swim in turquoise pools and discover one of the greatest of all Mayan cities waiting for you at the end of this incredible journey.
