Holiday type

Small group adventure holiday

Whether you are travelling alone or with friends/family its good value, and a great way to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is plenty of free time to explore at your own pace. This trip will appeal to travellers of all ages who enjoy meeting new people as well as seeing new places.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
In 8 days this tour allows you to visit three beautiful countries with unique sites and cultures. We believe, as a globally recognised tour operator, that it is our highest priority to ensure our group tours respect the environments which we are visiting and leave nothing but footprints. Our tour leaders will brief you on how you can travel responsibly through these areas, buying local produce and souvenirs. All locations on this tour are very walkable and easily explored on foot, which is the most environmentally friendly way of exploring a town.

This tour visits the beautiful island of Caye Caulker, where you will spend two full days. The island’s motto is to “go slow” and we ask that all customers respect the island way of life and make the most of this beautiful paradise. In order to keep the island clean we ask that you dispose of all litter responsibly and ensure that nothing is left behind when you visit the beach. When swimming or snorkelling, we encourage you not to disturb the marine animals that you come across and do not take natural materials from their habitat.

On this tour we include a visit and entrance to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Tikal. This ancient Mayan citadel is said to date back to around the 1st century A.D and has been abandoned since around 850 A.D. The temple here, which sits at 70 metres high, is the tallest pre-Colombian structure in the Americas. The money paid for entrance goes back into the preservation and restoration of the site in order to keep it in as pristine condition as possible for generations to come.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Our ethos continues to be authentic adventures that bring you up close and personal to the country in which you are travelling. In order to get the most out of your visit to these unique communities, we encourage you to learn a few words of the local language so that interaction in shops and markets is easier.

This itinerary is designed to allow for plenty of free time for you to enjoy the various activities that are on offer in each location, from watersports and snorkelling on Caye Caulker to cultural museums and tours to Mayan ruins. Our staff have worked hard over the years to build strong relationships with local suppliers so that not only you get the best experience but your money is going towards supporting the local economy and communities which we visit.

Meals on this tour, except breakfasts which are included in the hotels, are at your own expense. This gives you the freedom to choose the places you eat and provides the opportunity to shop in local markets and try out local restaurants. When arranging an optional group meal, our tour leaders will always choose traditional and authentic restaurants. We advise clients against shopping in larger international chains and to support local businesses as much as possible while on tour.

This tour works alongside a local transport provider to get us from A to B in a private minibus. Ensuring that we use a local supplier keeps business and money within the country and provides driving jobs for locals. Moreover, using this form of transport allows us to make stops along the way at more remote markets and shops, providing business for communities that might not be on the public transport main path.

Group Size - our small group size (maximum 19 passengers but 10-12 people on average) means that we can stay in smaller hotels and guesthouses in each location. We will always aim for locally owned accommodation since we believe tourism should directly benefit the businesses located in the area.
