Believe it or not, we’re going to Guatemala!

When we told our family and friends that we are going to Guatemala, their first impression was: "Are you kidding?" But let me say that we had a fantastic time from beginning to end. This was our first time to Guatemala so we were not sure what to expect. After getting there we were blown away — the way people are so friendly, and credit to the tour guides and drivers who took us around and assisted us in every way as possible.

We’ll always remember this trip because...

The walking tour in Antigua was excellent. I would recommend taking the walking tour because you come to know the culture and see the place in depth. We were lucky to observe the traditional Mayan celebrations and the busy open market at Chichicastenango. Selvatura Adventure Park was our favorite experience during the whole trip. Don't miss out on the zip lining! You can get incredible views from the suspension bridges as well.

All the logistics were planned perfectly...

Isla de Flores Hotel was beautiful and right in the center of Flores. I would say all the hotels that Anywhere put us up in were wonderful and in safe locations. We used Anywhere's private transfer to get from place to place. Throughout the whole trip, the drivers were very friendly and professional. Even though we changed the itinerary multiple times, Anywhere was there to guide and fulfill our requests. They really exceeded our expectations.
