What makes Guatemala a can’t miss destination?

Simply put, how extraordinary it is. We designed this Signature Trip to show you a little bit of everything our country has to offer –– ruins in luscious jungles, a serene lake made famous by Aldous Huxley, a rich history, volcanoes looming over valleys. Don't just visit Guatemala, really SEE it.

Why you’ll love this adventure…

It’s the perfect blend of excursions and relaxation. We’ve made sure that you’ll return home refreshed and rejuvenated. You’ll enjoy romantic dinners in the city, sunsets at Lake Atitlan, and the sweet scent of the Earth as you venture through the jungle to explore Mayan temples.

You’ll always remember this trip because…

It will show you a different side of Central America — colorful cities, friendly people, an exciting (and sometimes turbulent) history, culinary contributions, and so much more. Guatemala is a nation of living Mayans; the past is alive in the present and still shaping our future. Be a part of it.
