Guatemala holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

Guatemala holidays are just gorgeous. End of. Mayan archaeology abounds at famous Tikal, Topoxte and Yaxha ruins. The colonial period is captured perfectly in city of Antigua (Easter here is stunning). For those who want nature over culture, trek through cloud forest up to volcanic peaks in the Zunil mountains. Lake Atitlan, enveloped by volcanoes and indigenous lands is close to ethereal. And yes, Pacific beaches await too.

Mexico, Belize and Guatemala holiday
Fantastic. My teenage, and somewhat well-travelled children have rated it as the best holiday ever. (more)Alex Holmes
The morning spent at Tikal in Guatemala was excellent. This activity is definitely best done in the early morning light as it gets very warm and less pleasant to walk in the jungle after 10am. (more)Diana Urbina
From £693 - £769 excluding flights
Belize & Guatemala adventure holiday
Most memorable: Snorkelling. Knowledgeable guides. (more)Andrew Koziar
It was excellent...Sitting on Temple 4 in Tikal watching the sun rise was the most exciting part of the trip. (more)Fran McQuail
The most memorable parts were... probably visiting ATM cave in Belize which was a great experience, and also snorkelling with nurse sharks and sting rays in Caye Caulker was incredible too. (more)Louise Sherwell
From £700 - £1099 excluding flights
Mexico, Belize & Guatemala tour, Mayan encounter
Memorable parts? Snorkelling in a coral reef amongst nurse sharks and other amazing sea life was an experience that we will never forget. Tips? In spite of being by far the oldest couple in the group, we had a thoroughly amazing holiday with an excellent tour leader. Try to pack light. Local benefits? Yes, particularly the homestay which provides an alternate income for families trapped in povery. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Helen Hore

Central America overland tours
Memorable parts? Fantastic insight into many different cultures. Stunning and varied scenery in wonderful hot weather from the might of the Panama Canal to the jaw dropping beauty of the rain and cloud forests to the awesome splendour of the region's volcanoes and craters Tips? Do as much research as possible before your trip - I wished I had done more! Try and learn some basic conversational Spanish - I wish I had learnt more! Local benefits? Tourism is an infant business... (more)Douglas Newlands

Mexico & Guatemala overland tours
The nicest part was the homestay in a pleasant little village with a lovely family. (more)Laura Palmucci
The homestay at the family at Lake Attitlan, the volcano hiking and the caving were the most memorable parts. (more)Andrea Baumann
From £1496 - £2035 excluding flights
Central America tour on a shoestring
Memorable parts? Roatan, one of the bay Islands of Honduras, was beautiful and the diving was fantastic, and I'll probably never forget the chicken buses! Tips? If you're used to travelling independently then be prepared to find the lack of freedom quite restricting, however it is great not to have to worry about transport and accommodation! Local benefits? I feel that it benefitted local people as wherever possible we patronised local businesses and shops, and as far as is... (more)Victoria Baynes

Central America tours
Memorable parts? Roatan was by far the best stopover on this trip. The people on the tour were fabulous as well. Tips? Be wary of the long travel days. The dossier online makes each stop seem like a destination spot which is not the case. This tour would benefit from adding some flights from like Roatan to Managua to avoid 12 hour travel days, of which there are many in this tour. Local benefits? Yes we took lots of local transportation and really integrated with the local... (more)Angie Watson
