Known as the country of ‘Eternal Spring’, Guatemala will give you the most exciting opportunity to get closer to the ancient Mayan World. The visit to its iconic Mayan cities are impressive, such as the massive Mayan City of ‘Tikal’ with its 222 square miles or the lost Mayan City of ‘El Mirador’ with the largest pyramid in the Mayan world, among many others scattered throughout the country.
Be dazzled by its breathtaking landscapes, such as ‘Lake Atitlan’ or ‘Semuc Champey’. Visit the largest market in Central America in ‘Chichicastenango’ and taste the world famous coffee from ‘Antigua Guatemala’, the most beautiful colonial city in the Americas.
Guatemala, the heart of the Mayan world. It is alive, enchanted, mystical, and ancestral. Its history comes from thousands of years ago when the Mayan Civilization surfaced and whose heritage is still indisputable in the traditions and culture of its inhabitants.
Guatemala has an exceptional cultural and natural abundance and an advantaged geographic position. The stretch from place to place is often short so that travelers can stopover in diverse regions during the same tour.

Moreover, Guatemala has advantages for many specialized segments in tourism; such as its vital location and the facilities in its land and maritime terminals, which make it an important destination for ships from the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

The trip was off the charts! I couldn’t believe how many Mayan temples and structures were there – all within walking distance of each other. It was like walking into a parallel universe – like you were going 2000 years back in time. Definitely one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.
We asked them to create a tour for 21 days, 3 countries, taking in Mayan ruins and cultural and beautiful places. They did a wonderful job. Everything was so efficient, cost effective and impeccably organized. They made an itinerary, arranged drivers, guides and accommodation.
The staff at Mayan Gateway helped us plan and coordinated the logistics for 10 weeks of travel throughout Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. The trip was wonderful, and the staff at Mayan Gateway were knowledgeable, helpful, and very responsive.
Tour of seven countries in Central America. Mayan Gateway helped us two couples to put together a fantastic 8 week trip starting in Mexico Centre and ending in Panama. Josue made our dream plan come together and we stayed in some fantastic places in the most fantastic locations.
I cannot recommend Mayan Gateway more! We booked a 16 day tour of Guatemala for my 80 year old mother and myself and they were extraordinary! Every hotel was perfect, our driver and guide was so very kind. The day tours were perfectly pitched with knowledgeable local guides.
We experienced so many adventures in our two weeks in Central America. It was especially nice to be able to make suggestions and changes along the way. The guides were very intuitive and took us places that made our trip really exciting and unique. All of our accommodations were excellent.
We’ve traveled to over 50 countries, in both small and larger groups. Mayan Gateway’s communication and attention to detail, both before and during our trip, is second to none. The guides were all well-prepared and, in our case, extremely knowledgeable about birds and history.
We have 53 days traveling through Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Belize and Yucatan. An incredible journey through countries with very lovely people and beautiful scenery. In particular, Guatemala has touched us. Introduced to the Mayan culture, fascinating volcanoes.
Amazing experience. Josue was an amazing travel agent for our trip across Central America in four different countries, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Belize. Josue’s knowledge of all the countries was incredible, taking on a trip of a lifetime across two weeks.
Working with Mayan Gateway was an amazing experience that far exceeded our expectations. Everything went very smoothly for airport transfers, hotels, and excursions. We will definitely be working with them again in the future!
I can say this was the best tour experience we have ever had. MG was flawless and incredibly customized to our liking. This included to beautiful charm of the local Maya people, the rich history of the region, the wonderful food and the adventure of some fun hikes up to a volcano!
My experience with Mayan getaway far exceeded my expectations. Aside from putting together a great Guatemalan itinerary at a reasonable price, they were available throughout the trip for any and all questions or adjustments we had. Couldn’t recommend them more.
