Guatemala Tours and Mayan Culture In Tropical Paradise

For being so accessible to Americans, and for all the perfect natural treasures it offers, and for all the fascinating history to discover here, Guatemala is still under-appreciated. Guatemala is a compact, easily explored, wonderful country that is often overshadowed by its more popular cousins, Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, Belize, and Costa Rica. You won't find many fully developed all-inclusive resorts on our Guatemala tours. Instead, you'll find charming eco-lodges staffed by friendly locals of Mayan and Spanish ancestry. Speaking of the Maya, the emblematic culture can still be found in the ancient temples left behind by this civilization, and in the day-to-day life of modern Guatemalans. Many aspects of life here have remained constant for hundreds of years, accepting Spanish colonial quirks along the way, but remaining true to the memory of Maya.

Highlights of Guatemala

Mayan Heritage

Flying over the green sea of Guatemalan jungle, you might see the tip of a pyramid poking above the treetops. Explore the area by foot, and you will likely walk across ancient stone walkways, over walls, and through courtyards covered in vines. Sites like these, such as famous Tikal, dot the landscape, calling back to a time when these vast jungles were home to a dominant Mayan civilization. Though the buildings may have been forgotten for a time, the culture lived on. Today, modern locals are of Mayan descent, and carry their ancestors' history in their hearts.

Adventure in Beautiful Nature

As tourism to Guatemala has grown, the country has taken notes from other burgeoning tourist destinations. Guatemala has not wasted time in taking advantage of its natural treasures, and made exploring them an adventure wherever possible. Zip lines, white water rafting, jungle yoga retreats, stand up paddle boarding, sky diving, scuba diving, and the list goes on and on. Dense jungles, towering volcanoes, they're all playgrounds now for adventure-seekers.

Colonial Towns & Colorful Culture

The grand cathedral that dominates Guatemala City's central plaza, and the cobblestone streets that criss-cross towns across the country, are just a couple leftovers from Spanish colonial rule. The architecture, combined with a brightly colorful slant to the Guatemalan artistic preference, creates some absolutely stunning photo opportunities. These towns and cities serve as rest stops between adventures into the wilderness. They mostly feature just enough bars, hotels and restaurants to feel comfortable, but not enough to destroy the charm of Guatemala.
