Dear Members & Friends:
Travel enthusiasts grab your binoculars and cameras, and come explore the enchantment of Guatemala, the Mayan and scenic wonderland of Central America!
This expedition offers a chance to visit the Highlands of Guatemala during the festive season. At this time, the local Maya people put on fiestas, dances, processions, and religious celebrations, creating an exceptional air of excitement and interest.
This is also a wonderful opportunity to explore the historic cities of Chichicastenango and Antigua, and village life around the jewel of the Americas, Lake Atitlan, which is surrounded by spectacular volcanoes.
We then explore the finest Mayan ruins in Central America—Tikal, Quirigua, and Copan—plus the tropical lowlands around Rio Dulce. The archaeological sites are fantastic, as are the spider monkeys, macaws, and toucans!
Guatemala is a treasure house of wonders! We invite you to take this opportunity to explore them!
