Run by: Journey Latin America
Reference number: MTILU005GUABEL
This brief luxurious holiday combines two very contrasting countries. But distances are short, you travel at a lazy pace and you are based at intimate, high quality properties owned by film director Francis Ford Coppola, where the attention is on premium service..
Guatemala is steeped in indigenous and Spanish colonial tradition and religious mysticism. Belize, a truly Caribbean country, is English-speaking, utterly laid-back, and a popular destination for outdoor adventure enthusiasts.
Start off in Antigua, Guatemala's colonial masterpiece. On to jungle-stifled Flores and a visit to Tikal, the vast Mayan ruined city where ancient temples and pyramids penetrate the rainforest canopy. Cross the border into Belize and visit the cool forests of Mountain Pine Ridge, before rounding off the holiday at the sugar white beaches of low-key Placencia, maybe with a bit of snorkelling or scuba diving.
