This holiday to culture-rich Guatemala and the less well-known republic of Honduras takes you to some remote but extremely beautiful regions dotted with vestiges of a fascinating history. You start off in Antigua, one of the Spanish Empire’s most beautiful cities crammed with colonial mansions and flowery squares. Travel on to two of the Mayan civilisation’s most impressive archaeological sites, Tikal in Guatemala’s jungle lowlands and CopÁn over the border in Honduras.
Between these two visits you’ll head down the Rio Dulce in eastern Guatemala through mangroves and tropical forest, visiting a 16th century colonial fortress en route to the quirky town of Livingston, with its English-Caribbean-influenced Garifuna culture. Later you have a wildlife experience based at the extremely well-regarded, first-class Pico Bonito Lodge set in intact rainforest. Finally, head out to RoatÁn, one of the Bay Islands, for some beach-time and maybe a bit of snorkelling or scuba diving on the rich coral reef.
