HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Learn some Spanish during an informal lesson in oldworld Antigua, then put it to good use during the rest of your Central American adventure.
  • Wonder at steep, granite steps that reach into the sky while exploring the temples and monuments of Tikal: the seat of Maya power that mysteriously collapsed in AD950.
  • Explore Livingston: a unique riverside town where the local culture is heavily influenced by the AfroCaribbean Garifuna population.
  • Walk along cobblestone streets and shop for local handicrafts in the tiny inland island town of Flores and learn the traditional methods of making tortillas in a smallgroup workshop.
  • Recharge and rejuvenate on the white sands of the Yucatan Peninsula, relaxing in stunning Bacalar and laidback Tulum.
The "Guatemala To Mexico" trip starts in Antigua and ends in Playa Del Carmen. The "Guatemala To Mexico" trip is a cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 12 days. You will travel through Antigua, San Ignacio, Flores and 4 other destinations visiting Mexico, Peru and 2 more countries. This is a guided small group tour. The trip includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Travel the cobblestone streets of Antigua, through blissed-out Belize and along the Yucatan Peninsula to the beachside delight of Playa del Carmen on this 12-day adventure from the jungles of Guatemala to the beaches of Mexico. Crane your neck to gaze up stone temples with steps that lead into a jungle canopy in Tikal, stay in riverside Bacalar and sink your feet into white sands and clear waters in Tulum. From volcano-studded Antigua to the chilled-out charm of Mexico's coast – this tour delivers a slice of action, a dose of history and culture, and some well-deserved relaxation.
IMPORTANT: At the moment, Belize requires a minimum 3-night stay in the Gold Standard Certified accommodation for any foreign visitors to the country.
As we only stay in Belize for 2 nights in our original itinerary, we’ll need to make a change to the trip to meet this requirement. Therefore, instead of crossing the border into Mexico and staying in Bacalar on Day 8, you’ll spend a night in a lovely riverside cabin in Orange Walk District in Belize and cross border into Mexico on Day 9 and continue your journey directly to Tulum. We'll automatically revert to our original itinerary once the 3-night minimum stay requirement in Belize is dropped.

A great trip on land, underground and on the sea.
My wife and I are over 75 years old, but fit. We hiked and climbed Mayan pyramids, swam and trekked through an underground cave, snorkeled and dove reefs and shopped and dined in local markets. We took some extra trips, but... Read more
