Kinkajou: Best of Guatemala and Belize

12 days from £2,530pp
 

Group Journey

 
This variety-packed escorted group journey combines two countries which couldn’t be more different. Guatemala is steeped in native Mayan indian and Spanish colonial tradition plus religious mysticism. Belize, a truly Caribbean country, is English speaking, utterly laid-back, and a popular destination for some outdoor adventure. It’s a real treat to be able to combine the two into one experience-packed holiday.

Start off in Antigua, Guatemala’s colonial masterpiece, and continue to the serene setting of Lake Atitlán, encircled by volcanoes, – pocket handkerchief sized fields and time-warped indigenous villages.

Continue to Tikal, the vast Mayan city where ancient temples and pyramids penetrate the rainforest canopy. Crossing the border into Belize, stay at a remote countryside lodge surrounded by tropical foliage rich in wildlife; enjoy the thrills and spills of outdoor activities, or just relax. Overall, you'll be enchanted by the friendly people, extraordinary architecture and diverse flora and fauna.

What our experts say

Despite sharing borders, Guatemala and Belize are probably the two most contrasting countries in Central America. Our Kinkajou Journey travels through the colonial towns, indigenous lakeside communities, colourful markets and then on to the jungle to visit Mayan Tikal and over the border to the stay in the mountains of wildlife rich Belize.
