  • We were on a tight budget while studying in Xela, but Mayan Gateway worked with us to give us an AMAZING experience at Lake Atitlan for an extremely reasonable price. Very nice people. Very organized. Would HIGHLY recommend and am definitely planning more trips through them during my subsequent visits to Guatemala.

  • We had a wonderful experience on our trip to Tikal with Mayan Gateway. They setup a WhatsApp group and were very responsive to questions. They arranged our flights, accommodation, bus travel and guide. Tikal was awe inspiring, and our trip was made especially enjoyable by our very knowledgeable guide, Julio, who indulged our many questions about Mayan civilization and culture.

  • Choose Mayan Gateway! As backpackers of yesteryear, we were hesitant to have someone help us on our Guatemalan/Belizian adventure. But with teen girls, gone are the days of chicken buses, winging it, determining every detail and safety. Josue put together a fantastic itinerary! All the hotels were great and the drivers were amazing. It was the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. I don’t think I have ever had an easier border crossing, seriously.

  • Mayan Gateway was amazing. After many quotes, questions, and recommendations, Josue made us a perfect, customized itinerary for 9 days in Guatemala and 2 days in Belize. All the drivers and tour guides were on time and very good, the hotels were beautiful, and everyone was easy to contact with questions or concerns (Josue always responded to our texts within 5 minutes). I would highly recommend Mayan Gateway for planning your entire Central America trip!

  • Josué and his company, Mayan Gateway, did an absolutely superb job organizing our trip. Everything went very smoothly from start to finish, without a single hitch or glitch. The vehicles were impeccably clean and comfortable, the guides and drivers were wonderful and were in constant contact with Josué to make sure that things went as they were supposed to go. There was also a great willingness to be flexible and accommodating with our schedule.

  • Excellent service for a helicopter tour to El Mirador from Flores. Communication with and payment to company were efficient and easy. We were unable to print paper tickets (which were somehow necessary) so the driver who picked us up at the hotel printed them for us. The equipment and pilot were confidence inspiring. We had a guide who knew El Mirador well and is also an archeologist. It was a great day and well worth the expense. Highly recommend.
