Guatemala & Belize Luxury Tours

The best of Guatemala and Belize by private air

TAILOR-MADE TOURS GUATEMALA & BELIZE

Your Guatemala and Belize luxury tour begins in Antigua, the perfect introduction to this colorful country. Accompanied by your expert guide, learn about the fascinating colonial history of Guatemala as you wander through the town’s charming and historic streets. Next, venture into the highlands as your private tour of Guatemala and Belize continues at Lake Atitlan. The area’s striking volcanoes serve as a memorable backdrop for outdoor adventures such as kayaking on the lake, hiking between Mayan villages, or visiting shrines to local deities. Departing directly from the property’s helipad, a private helicopter will transfer you to Petén, your next destination. En route, touch down at El Mirador, a remote, little-visited site that is nicknamed “the lost city of the Maya,” where you will find the largest pyramid the Mayans ever built. In Petén, explore the famous Mayan ruins at Tikal before crossing the border into Belize and taking a charter flight to your final destination. In Placencia, located on the Caribbean coast, snorkel or scuba dive along one of the world’s largest reefs, take a private boating excursion to explore nearby cayes, and enjoy relaxing on beautiful beaches characterized by white sand and crystal clear water. On your final day, take a charter flight to the international airport in Belize City, passing over the spectacular Blue Hole on the way, for a memorable last glimpse of this beautiful region to close out your tailor-made tour of Guatemala and Belize.
