Luxury Guatemala and Belize: Tikal and the Caribbean

11 days from £2,428pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip

 

Private Journey

 

This brief luxurious holiday combines two very contrasting countries.  But distances are short, you travel at a lazy pace and you are based at intimate, high quality properties owned by film director Francis Ford Coppola, where the attention is on premium service..

Guatemala is steeped in indigenous and Spanish colonial tradition and religious mysticism. Belize, a truly Caribbean country, is English-speaking, utterly laid-back, and a popular destination for outdoor adventure enthusiasts.

Start off in Antigua, Guatemala’s colonial masterpiece. On to jungle-stifled Flores and a visit to Tikal, the vast Mayan ruined city where ancient temples and pyramids penetrate the rainforest canopy. Cross the border into Belize and visit the cool forests of Mountain Pine Ridge, before rounding off the holiday at the sugar white beaches of low-key Placencia, maybe with a bit of snorkelling or scuba diving.

What our experts say

I’ve always loved the contrast between Guatemala and Belize and so it made sense to bring them together for this signature trip. A great introduction to both countries, this holiday showcases the diverse cultures and history found in each region, from the indigenous highland communities of Guatemala to the laid-back, Caribbean atmosphere found in Belize. I’ve packed in lots of authentic experiences too, including the opportunity to fish with local fishermen on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala and swim with nurse sharks in Shark Ray Alley in Belize.
