At a Glance

The Guatemala with Belize itinerary combines the highlights of Guatemala such as Antigua, Lake Atitlán and Tikal with Belize’s most important Mayan sites in the west of the country (Caracol, Xunantunich) and takes you back to Guatemala City via Placencia Beach, where this trip concludes. The trip also includes the south of Belize, which is still visited by few tourists compared to other parts of the country that are increasingly touristy.
Our hotel suggestions in this itinerary belong more to the ” attractive and inexpensive” category. The hotels in this itinerary are only recommendations, of course (almost) all hotels can be changed on request, as well as the duration of the trip or the number of nights in individual places.
