Guatemala is Central America's cultural treasure chest, with arguably the most impressive of all Mayan sites, Tikal; lush tropical jungle a-plenty; a colonial jewel of a town in Antigua; and highlands dotted with tiny, colourful villages and markets.
Stay in a hacienda hideaway in the rainforest or one of Guatemala's charming, boutique hotels for a luxury holiday, honeymoon or adventure break full of vivid colour and captivating culture. If you're a sucker for scenery, Lake Atitlan, framed by volcanic peaks is the perfect addition to any Guatemala holiday itinerary.
Luxury holidays in Guatemala work well twinned with a few days in Belize or Honduras, both of which offer magnificent diving and snorkelling.
