Experts in travel to remote corners of the world


> Central America

Bienvenidos a Guatemala, a nation of spectacular cultural and natural features best known for its Mayan and Colonial archaeological sites and native handicrafts. Visitors to Guatemala will find a diversity of experience and adventure available nowhere else in the world.

Only a short distance from the capital, Guatemala City, volcanoes that can be hiked in a day ring the spectacular, mile-high waters of Lake Atitlan. Villagers gather from the countryside to sell their unique weavings and handicrafts at Chichicastenango’s world-reknown marketplace. And Mayan ruins, where magnificent palaces, pyramids, and temples await, dot the land.

Explore a protected cloud forest reserve, home of the elusive quetzal bird, and raft a clear mountain river on a guided trip through the habitat of exotic birds and howler monkeys. In the lush jungle surrounding the archaeological wonders of Tikal National Park, the presence of the mysterious jaguar heightens the senses, and reminds the visitor of Guatemala’s many ancient secrets.
