Heart of The Mayan World

12 Day Guatemala Itinerary

Traveling solo can be unnerving, especially when going to a new destination, but all of my experiences were made even more amazing by the wonderful guides and locals.

The best care for solo travelers...

Traveling solo to Guatemala, I am super grateful for Anywhere.com for helping me put my itinerary together. My trip designer, Rodrigo, was really patient and did his best to ensure I had the perfect experience.

Exploring the ancient ruins...

The ancient Mayan sites: Yaxhá and Topoxté, were incredible. All my experiences were made even more amazing and enjoyable by knowledgeable guides and locals. I really enjoyed the boat ride and walk through the jungle in the Ceibal one-day tour. There are a lot of interesting excavation and restoration efforts for the impressive ruins there.

Beautiful views and beautiful lodges...

The drive to Dos Pilas at Peten was quite the adventure, but the driver was excellent and made me feel safe. My accommodations at Casa Azul at Flores and Hostal Villa Toscana in Guatemala City were beautiful. The landscaping was excellent but the views are even better.
