Guatemala

A country busting with colour

Guatemala is a country busting at the seams with a mix of colonial architecture, rich indigenous history and spectacular volcanic and tropical jungle scenery. On a bespoke SLA Guatemala holiday you'll be amazed at every turn.

Meander through the colourful local markets bartering with stall holders and getting lost in the piles of wares on sale. Get lost in the lively festivals or spontaneous live music that bursts onto the streets and plazas.

Antigua is a pretty colonial town perfect for people watching. Delve deep in the steamy rainforest to discover vast Mayan cities, hop on your bike to cycle around shimmering lakes and towering volcanoes or hike through indigenous villages and rolling countryside. Out of all the Latin American countries, this one has got to be one of our favourites.

From the word go we listen to what it is your looking for, whether its relaxation, activity or culture, and design a trip based around your brief. Our selected accommodation ranges from colonial mansions to yoga retreats set right on the lake so you can visit this country in comfort. Our local guides know the country inside out giving a more authentic Guatemalan experience.

Choose us for your tailor-made experience of a lifetime.
