Guatemala Tours FAQs
What are the accommodations like?

We have chosen an array of delightful accommodations ranging from basic homestays, to jungle cabanas, to cozy hotels with all of the modernized amenities. Regularly, we work with small, family-run hotels lodges that are locally owned and representative of each area instead of big chain resorts.

What is the homestay like?

Guatemala is exceptionally well known for its living Mayan culture. The homestay is a particular chance to experience legitimate local life and ancient Maya hospitality. Meals include local dishes such as beans, tortillas, rice, beans, vegetables, and eggs. When the members of your host-family don’t speak English, your tour guide will be there to help you communicate.

Are meals included?

Yes and no. We have worked to balance flexibility and accessibility in regards to meals. Consequently, the price often includes meals on excursions when you are traveling off the beaten track where restaurant options are limited.

In the main towns, where there are a big range of restaurants, we mostly do not include meals, to grant our guests the opportunity of selecting their own restaurant preferences. Your tour guide or hotel staff can suggest some excellent restaurants. Breakfast is included at the hotels. 

What are the local guides like?

All of our local guides are extraordinary! We have local guides who besides Spanish and local languages speak English, French, German, Italian or Mandarin, amongst other languages.

How do I get to the hotel from the airport when I arrive?

Your first driver/guide will be waiting for you outside of arrivals in Guatemala City. You should find him/her standing directly outside of the customs check after the baggage claim and holding a sign with your name on it.

He/she should be easy to find – the airport in Guatemala City has only one exit. Although he/she can’t enter the doors of the airport to look for you, you should see him immediately upon exiting the airport.

How far in advance should I book?

You can book your Guatemala tour anytime. For most trips, 2-3 months notice works well, though the Holiday Season and Easter may fill up 5-6 months sooner. We mostly advise that you wait to book your international flights until after your trip is confirmed.
