Hand-crafted Travel to Guatemala

Guatemala is a small country with a multifaceted history illustrated in its colourful clothing, lively music and traditional cuisine. The Guatemalan people are descendants of Mayan and indigenous tribes, Spanish invaders and intrepid tourists that never left. The result is a melting pot of cultures that make it a tantalising country to visit. The relics of Guatemala’s Mayan past are not easy to find; most of the temples and sprawling cities lie in peace beneath netted vines and impenetrable jungle, but the spirit of this lost world is still very much alive. It is not for everyone; Guatemala is a wild and untamed country, but free spirits with an open mind will find a visit here to be spiritually rejuvenating.

Guatemala Hotspots

Embark on a Guatemalan adventure through the diverse landscapes and rich indigenous heritage of the country. Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage site, radiates colonial charm and vibrant markets. Tikal’s ancient Mayan ruins emerge from the Petén jungle. Lake Atitlán’s serene beauty is surrounded by indigenous villages. Explore the cultural richness of Quetzaltenango.

Antigua

Exploring the beautiful city of Antigua with its backdrop of perfectly formed volcanoes and faded Spanish architecture is like being on a movie set. Stroll beneath Spanish arches and cathedral squares and enjoy the bittersweet scent of fresh coffee and chocolate that touches the warm breeze.

Lake Atitlan

Ringed by volcanoes, the changing hues and moving shadows on this mystical lake will have you entranced for hours. From the deck of your lakeside lodge or gliding by boat on the glass-clear water, it takes time to process the sheer beauty of Lake Atitlan.

Tikal

With a complex history that spans over 800 years, you will need the company of an engaging and knowledgeable guide to get the most from your visit to Tikal. This Mayan stronghold was the largest in The Americas, once home to a population of somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 people.
