Spend 9-days immersed yourself in fulfilling experiences while giving back to Guatemalan communities. This personalized journey will leave you enchanted with the colorful culture, natural wonders, and storied history of this unique nation.

Destination Overview

Considered to be Central America’s most diverse country, Guatemala charms its guests with a treasure trove of diverse and dramatic landscapes, as well as an intriguing fusion of Mayan and colonial culture and history. The Evolved Traveler’s new 9-day journey, “Guatemala: Marvels & Mayan Mysteries” will let you experience all the wonders and mystique of this emerging gem.

Your journey begins in Antigua, a cosmopolitan town with a rich colonial past. Its cobblestone streets are lined with pastel-hued homes, and an exceptional selection of cafes, restaurants, and shops. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, Antigua sits in a valley between coffee farms, indigenous villages, and three imposing volcanoes. Engage with the locals as they go about daily life at the bustling and colorful Comalapa and Cichi Markets before embarking on a sunset cruise on Lake Peten – just one of Guatemala’s postcard backdrops. Your accommodations on Lake Peten are none other than La Lancha, Francis Ford Coppola’s luxurious property. Take in the fabled Mayan ruins of Iximche, dramatic Tikal, and Uaxactun where you will experience a true once-in-a-lifetime event – spending the night under the stars amongst its ethereal ruins!

There is no mistaking the allure and authenticity of Guatemala, a hidden gem in our own backyard. We invite you to let The Evolved Traveler plan your transformative journey to experience all the cultural, natural, and historical riches of this wondrous country.
