The Essential’s - Extensions
Squeeze in even more excitement with our Extensions for Essential Itineraries. Don’t miss out on these once-in-a-lifetime adventures, including:
Tikal National Park
Hike around magnificent pyramids and the world’s largest excavated Mayan archeological site nestled inside untouched rainforests. This Extension is available as either a day trip or overnight stay. We know your time is valuable. That’s why we arrange itineraries with a domestic one-hour flight for visiting Tikal National Park.
These glistening turquoise natural pools are off the beaten path and typically inaccessible to tourists. Semuc Champey is a notorious destination for backpackers thanks to its somewhat remote location and easygoing vibe. Swim in the otherworldly pools, tube the river, explore K’an Ba Cave, and take a short hike to the scenic point to admire the Semuc Champey view from above.
Kayak along the beautiful lake and river system or watch the sailboats float by.
Rio Dulce is a charming destination like nothing else (and a popular sailing spot) with flowing plant life and graceful birds. Huts serving as summer houses for lovers of Guatemala line the shore. Explore Castillo de San Felipe in all its glory:
a striking Spanish colonial fortress built in 1644.
The Pacific Coast
Let the world pass by as you ride horse-back against black sand beaches or just take in the glory of the Pacific Ocean’s powerful currents.
