Description of Belize and Guatemala adventure holiday

This small group holiday gives you two weeks in Belize and Guatemala – next-door neighbours that span the width of Central America. You’re in good hands the whole way around, thanks to an expert guide who’ll lead you to ex-Spanish cities and rainforest hideaways.

Out west in Guatemala, you’ll explore Antigua, the one-time capital – cobbled streets and smoking volcanic backdrop included. You’ll find more peaks in volcano-ringed Lake Atitlan and Tikal, a vast Mayan city with pyramids and temples that peek out of the rainforest.

Dive deeper into the rainforest as you travel across the Belize border. A jungle lodge at Chaa Creek will be your base for a couple of nights, where you can canoe the Macal River or hike the orchid trails.

Small group adventure holiday

This trip is run by a company which specialises in only Central and South America holidays. Typically you will be sharing your experiences with between 4-20 like minded travellers (depending on the trip and how many others are booked on it) and you'll have a group leader with you. Whether you are travelling alone, with your partner or with friends its good value, and a great way to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of privacy. This trip will appeal to travellers of all ages who enjoy meeting new people as well as seeing new places, whilst being led by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic leader.

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.

We visit and support the conservation of the National Park of Tikal. The park is also part of the Mayan Biosphere Reserve. By paying entrance fees and hiring local guides, we are encouraging the continued preservation and studies of the area and its heritage of wildlife, nature and ancient ruins.

Our style of travel ensures that as many local people as possible benefit by our being there. This Belize and Guatemala adventure holiday runs with a maximum of 16 people which helps to minimise the impact on delicate environments.

The Impacts of this Trip

At Lake Atitlan we visit traditional surrounding villages and are invited into the local’s homes, where we get a real insight into community life, which also bring direct benefits. We also have the opportunity of visiting and supporting a women’s weaving co-operative. Many Guatemalan’s main income is through selling crafts and produce, consequently, at Chichicastenango market and other smaller markets you can buy directly off the local people so that they benefit as much as possible.
