Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The best time to travel to Guatemala & Belize is between December and May, which is technically the drier season (although this can be a little unpredictable). The weather is tropical and the coastal areas are often hot and humid, with the forest highlands and Mayan mountains being a little cooler. June to August are often busy with foreign travellers so we recommend travelling outside these times.

Itinerary

Indulge on an adventurous honeymoon through Guatemala and Belize, taking in vibrant cultures, fascinating history and wild jungle, before escaping to the beautiful Cayo Espanto, a paradisiacal private island hotel surrounded by shallow Caribbean waters and untouched coral reefs. Stay at luxurious properties throughout for the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation - no need to compromise.

  1. Fly to Guatemala City

  2. Days 1-3: Antigua

    Begin your journey in the colonial city of Antigua, one of the most beautiful in Guatemala, and spend a couple of days wandering through its cobbled streets, sampling delicious local food, visiting independent boutiques and admiring its jaw-dropping valley setting and volcanic backdrop. Stay at a stylish boutique hotel with a central location and plenty of colonial charm.

    Accommodation: San Rafael Hotel (2 nights)

  3. Days 3-6: Lake Atitlan

    From Antigua, drive to Lake Atitlan where we recommend spending three nights at Casa Palopo, a beautiful hotel which looks out over breathtaking landscapes of towering volcanoes and the shimmering surface of the lake. The lake is surrounded by small villages which each have a unique personality and showcase a range of colourful handicrafts and textiles. Explore some of the villages to discover the fascinating character and the friendly locals, trying your hand at weaving at a woman's cooperative nearby and sampling chocolates which have been produced in this region. Enjoy a sunset boat ride across the lake, soaking it all in whilst sipping a glass of champagne.

    Accommodation: Casa Palopo (3 nights)

  4. Days 6-8: Tikal

    Next, head deep into the jungles of Peten, where the Mayan ruins of Tikal await, dramatically rising up out of the forest canopy. The area is rich with history and tropical wildlife, from monkeys to toucans and other rare animal species. Stay for two nights at La Lancha which boasts a lovely lakeside setting, using it as a base to explore the Tikal site, as well as the nearby ruins of Yaxha which are quieter and best enjoyed at sunset.

    Accommodation: La Lancha (2 nights)

  5. Days 8-11: Mountain Pine Ridge

    Crossing the border into Belize, the jungle will give way to glorious pine forest as you reach the Mountain Pine Ridge, where adventures abound. Blancaneaux Lodge is the perfect base, offering an array of exciting excursions, beautiful grounds and gorgeous rustic-chic accommodation. Explore the region on horseback, discover hidden waterfalls and cool natural pools, experience impressive cave systems and more Mayan ruins, as well as going in search of jaguars and other wildlife species before being rewarded with refreshing sundowners.

    Accommodation: Blancaneaux Lodge (3 nights)

  6. Days 11-15: Ambergris Caye & Private Islands

    You will then soar over the Maya Mountains as you are transferred by helicopter to Belize City, taking in breathtaking views of the forests and 1,000 Foot Falls as you go. Connect with a 20-min light aircraft flight to San Pedro where you will be transferred by boat to Cayo Espanto, a heavenly island in the Caribbean which offers just 7 luxurious cabanas, each with a team of staff to look after your every need. Powdery sand meets turquoise ocean, which can be explored by kayak, paddleboard or boat. For more adventures, head out to nearby coral reefs for a spot of diving or snorkelling, or sail to nearby secluded islands where you can enjoy a specially prepared beach dinner in total privacy. A bed can even be set out under the stars on your private terrace for you to truly make the most of this romantic setting. Spend four nights here in total luxury before returning to the mainland and connecting with your flight home.

    Accommodation: Cayo Espanto (4 nights)

  7. Fly Home via Belize City

Experiences

  • Chichicastenango Market by Helicopter

    Buzzing with local life, Chichicastenango Market is full of stalls stocking food, random household objects and handmade textiles, and is a wonderful place to go for a spot of people watching. Fly there by helicopter and soak in amazing views on route.

  • Horseback Riding Cayo District

    Follow trails through the rain forest visiting Mayan plazas and ceremonial sites, including Skeleton Cave. Finish the day at Big Rock Falls, where you can take a refreshing dip and enjoy a picnic lunch before heading back to your lodge.

  • Private sunset picnic at Cayo Espanto

    Perfect for a spot of indulgence or a romantic evening, enjoy a private picnic with champagne, a selection of gourmet snacks and some soothing music, all set up in time to soak in a glorious sunset. Tiki lights will add a gentle glow after the sun sets.

  • Sunrise at Tikal

    Enjoy an early morning excursion to the impressive temples of Tikal and soak in the sounds of the jungle as the sun rises over its towering structures. Climb temple 4 for stunning views and the chance to enjoy 360-degree views over this magical site.
