What to see and do in Guatemala

MORE ABOUT GUATEMALA

Like Colombia, its bigger and beefier neighbour, Guatemala is an area only gently experiencing the first serious pangs of travel. It is unknown but warm; boutique rather than bossy; easy to get around and perfect for a short luxury break. Without chain hotels and a landscape that includes stately volcanoes, beautiful lake Atitlan, charming colonial towns with cobbled streets, and the massive Tikal National Park – with its adventure-goading ancient ruins-, it’s a true feast for the senses. So eat up.

INDIANA JONES WOULD BE JEALOUS

A private tour around Guatemala is an ideal way to experience a country that hasn’t been hollowed-out by chains and mass tourism. Experiencing the jungle ruins of Tikal – stepping through warm-moist hanging vines, and glimpsing ancient grey-green stone emerging from between the trees – is a truly heart-stopping moment, fit for any Indiana Jones film. Except the new one. We’re not fans.

BOUNTIFUL BOUTIQUES

Unfiltered and boutique is the way that Guatemala does its hotels; passing up chain hotels for small boutiques that still uphold levels of luxury service that you’d expect anywhere else in the world. Whether you stay among the cobbled streets and brightly coloured colonial buildings, smothered in jacaranda and filled with the scent of cooking, in Antigua, or at a relaxing resort at the edge of the shockingly blue Lake Atitlan, the options quite unlike anywhere else in the world.

A MAYAN HONEYMOON

From ancient Mayan ruins and glassy lakes to deep, misty jungles and bustling, cultured cities and towns, Guatemala makes for a seriously enriching and alternative luxury honeymoon. Go your own way and avoid the crowds and the queues. Glamp among the ruins at Tikal, before star-gazing over a romantically different candle-lit dinner.
