We were very impressed by the quality of accommodations selected for us and the choice of guide they hired. Our guide was very knowledgeable, drove us in a very comfortable and well maintained vehicle, and involved additional guides with knowledge specific to our interests at every possibility. We not only learned a lot about the country and Mayan culture, but made a wonderful friend in the process. Very happy with this travel agency and their thoughtful organization of our vacation. Everything went off without a hitch and we were spared worrying about details. As a result we could completely relax and enjoy the trip.
Chichicastenango was amazing and our local guide provided us with a moving introduction to his Mayan heritage. We visited his family's Mask Museum and were able to participate in a ceremony led by his mother who is a Mayan priest.
Next to that was the ATM cave tour near Cayo in Belize. We loved our resort and the cave tour was an extraordinary experience that made its mark on the entire family.
Spend less time in Aubergris Caye. I preferred the highlands with its nature beauty and historical significance. I was less impressed with San Pedro. Although we stayed in a beautiful small resort, we were surrounded by white, wealthy, Americans and a few Europeans. There were a lot of bugs, so we all got bitten quite a bit.
Although the family was happy to spend time in the water, kayak, snorkle, and sun bathe, I wished there had been more of a connection to the local people and less of a high end tourist feel to the last days of our trip,
