The most amazing Tikal experience...

This Guatemala adventure started with an up-close experience at Tikal. We really enjoyed our guide who is very knowledgeable about the history and Mayan stories. He's obviously super passionate about this destination and we learned a lot.

The gem of this trip...

Many people rave about the beauty of Semuc Champey but you wouldn't know until you see it for yourself. It really is like emerald pools. The town of Languin was charming for our stay there. Lake Atitlan is really a gem of the country. We were able to do a lot of things such as hiking San Pedro Volcano and visiting the open market at Chichicastenango. We even treated ourselves to the hot springs at the end of the trip.

What makes this vacation successful...

Our drivers were all professional and knowledgeable. They were fun and always in a good mood. Especially the driver who transported us from Panajachel to Monterrico. We had the chance to learn more about the country and culture with him while he drove us around.
