  • Julia showed us her beautiful country. The views going up Pacaya, the active volcano, were stunning. Toasting marshmallows in the fumerole was a real joy too! Lake Airtlan is gorgeous, and it was tremendous fun going by tuktuk to see the local god Maximon.

    If you haven’t been to Guatemala, stop what you’re doing and just go!Fiona Curtis (Sea to highlands tour)

  • Guatemala is a fascinating country, with great variations in environment, habitats, weather and culture and we saw a wide spectrum of all this on our recent holiday with Julia.
    If you want to visit Central America and would like a guided visit, with a very knowledgeable local person, then I would definitely recommend Verde-Ecology Tours.
