Package Map Picture
Guatemala

Guatemala is a magical country in the Mayan heartland of Central America. Indigenous Guatemalan culture is alive and well in the ancient ruins of Tikal, the Mayan/Catholic rituals and open market of Chichicastenango, and the blazing colors of everyday Mayan dress. The colonial town of Antigua, and Lake Atitlan, viewed by many as the most beautiful lake in the world, are two destinations guaranteed to enlighten the soul.
Honduras

Honduras' slow pace, natural charm, and low-profile tourism make it particularly appealing to travelers who enjoy getting off the beaten track. Beauty, magic, and traditions abound in the Mayan archaeological city of Copan, the Caribbean Coast, and the Bay Islands, a true haven for scuba diving and snorkeling enthusiasts.
