Guatemala is not an ordinary destination. As Nobel Award winner Miguel Angel Asturias said:
"Guatemala is an old country where nature and history left majestic signs of the power of their creation. It is without any doubt one of the richest countries in mysteries and inexpressible secrets in all Central America, fabulous Caribbean Mediterranean, a center and sanctuary of ancient Indo-American culture."
Guatemala has various destinations that allow parents with their children to enjoy their visit together in a safe environment. Please contact us so that we can make appropriate proposals when you are traveling with children.
Cruise ships arrive to Guatemala at the Santo Tomas de Castilla Port at the Atlantic Ocean, or at the Puerto Quetzal Port at the Pacific Ocean. From Santo Tomas de Castilla we can organize excursions to the archaeological site of Quirigua, UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981, and a tour on the Rio Dulce River with visit of the Garifuna village Livingston. Private planes are available to visit Tikal, one of the largest Maya sites in the 'Maya World'. From Puerto Quetzal we offer excursions to the colonial city of Antigua, the 'pearl' of Central America. This town is attractive due to its cobblestone streets and its unique Spanish colonial architecture. Also we can arrange an excursion to the active Pacaya volcano and we can organize private airplanes to bring you to Tikal.
