Family holidays in Guatemala can be an amazing way for children to learn about nature, adventure and many trips will also include encounters with completely different culture.

To get the best out of a family tour to Guatemala and Lake Atitlan, we’d use our experience to tailor the trip to your family. As well as your interests and your budget, we’ll consider the age and individual maturity of your children, and any safety concerns.

We know that many ‘standard’ Tours will end up being boring for children, who are expected to sit quietly whilst entertainment isn’t guaranteed. Finding good, child-friendly lodges may seem the obvious choice – but only a few live up to their marketing promises. We discuss private guides with you who have a track record of guiding children. These are often included at our private villas and home stay or holiday home, along with your own private chef.

For more Guatemala and Atitlan travelers, especially those on a more limited budget, we arrange family transportation holidays all over Guatemala.
