Your Guatemala Quick Getaway first begins in colonial Antigua. Your charming boutique hotel places you in the heart of the historic city. Over three days, your private guide leads you on an exploration through town and transports you to the base Chigag volcano for a sunrise hike. Of course, sumptuous stone massages and remote picnic breakfasts serve as highlights along the way.



Transfer next to Peten to continue your Guatemala private tour. Once there, stop in Flores for a deep dive into the mysterious Owl Caves here. Later, visit the Yaxha archaeological site for a special sunset tour. Then continue into the jungle for a very special overnight glamping experience set up just for you.

Finally, conclude your Guatemala Quick Getaway with a private helicopter ride to Mirador, where you will explore the Mayan City of El Mirador. The ruins here are impressive, with the Tiger Pyramid soaring 18 stories high and covering an area the size of three football fields.

Enjoy a private tour of the ruins before settling in to your waterfront suite accommodations nearby for your final night in Guatemala.
