Guatemala

Guatemala has a bad name in tourism and we really wonder why. The population is friendly and the landscapes are spectacular. Lots of volcanoes and clear blue lakes will make you drop your jaw! If that is not enough there is also the breath-taking beauty of Tikal, a Mayan complex which lies in the middle of the jungle. Combine that with the mystical market of Chichicastenango and you have an amazing trip ahead of you. Finish your trip with a boat tour on the Rio Dulce and discover the small beaches of Livingston.

Highlights

Highlights

To give you inspiration we thought it would be helpful to make an overview of places which are definitely worth visiting when you come to the Mundo Maya! See this as a small guide to get acquainted with what we have to offer and we hope this helps you make the right decisions for a future trip you might be planning.

Chichicastenango

Every Thursday and Sunday this sleepy town is turned into a real happening. But it is not just the market. Churches are full of a mythical feeling and in the surrounding hills old Mayan rituals take place.

Quetzaltenango

Xela, as this city is called by the locals, is often overlooked by travellers. The city itself is really worth a visit but the surrounding volcanoes with hot springs and local markets make it even more worth your while.

Tikal

If you want to awaken the Indiana Jones in you then this is the place to be. It is also a wonderful place for those who love nature and that mystical feel in the morning. The temples in Tikal are magnificent any time of the day and a must visit!

Flores

This small town derived its fame from nearby Tikal but it does also do well on its own. It lies on a small island in a lake which makes the town very compact and nice to discover. Nearby jungle excursions are easily organised as well.

Rio Dulce / Livingston

A trip on the Rio Dulce is a wonderful experience. You lazily float along the river to end up in Livingston where the local population gives the place a really laid back feel. It is mostly mangroves here but some secluded beaches can be found.

Coban / Lanquin / Semuc Champey

Visiting Coban is visiting the gorgeous limestone plateaus and pool of Semuc Champey. Add to that the cave systems at Lanquin and you have an amazing day out.

Copan (Honduras)

Copan is a small village in the mystical mountains of western Honduras. This picturesque town serves as a starting point to the ruins of Copan, which count as one of the most important sites of the Mayan civilization.

Antigua

Probably the first place you sleep after arriving in Guatemala. The iconic clocktower over de road, the pastel coloured buildings. Everything is loungy about Antigua where the squares are cozy and full of life and the nearby Pacaya volcano is worth a visit.

Panajachel

Picture the most beautiful postcard: a gorgeous blue lake completed by a few volcanoes and small towns where people still live a life without mobile phones.

Dear Lise-Marie,

Unfortunately we are back in the Netherlands, catching up from our flight. We would like to thank you very much for all your help and services! We had an amazing time in Mexico, with a trip that had everything. Cities, nature, history and relaxation and then also amazing accommodations! Once again, words cannot express our gratitude enough. We will be sure to visit again in the future and should we have friends who want to visit we will certainly recommend your services.

Very warm regards,

Yvette
