Quetzal Highway - Special MMA Departure
Event Details Section

A brief tour for those wanting a quick look at Guatemala, Belize and Mexico. If you want to discover ancient ruins, beautiful Caribbean beaches and see some incredible scenery and wildlife, then this is the trip for you.


Day 1 to 5
Antigua (Guatemala) - Rio Dulce – Flores – Tikal – San Ignacio

Antigua is one of the most attractive towns in Central America. Here you will see the local indigenous population in their colourful costumes, selling their textiles in the cobbled streets and plazas. It is also the cultural centre of Guatemala, an ideal place to experience the traditional music, architecture and art of the country. Rich in ornate churches, convents, parks, plazas, cafés, restaurants, bars and colourful street markets and surrounded by awe-inspiring volcanoes, Antigua is one place you will never forget!

On day 2 we depart Antigua by minvans to the river town of Rio Dulce. We stay in cabins right on the water, and have the option to take a boat tour to Livingston experiencing some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable along this 23-kilometre stretch of waterway. Livingston is situated at the mouth of the Rio Dulce where it joins the Bay of Amatique and is inhabited by the Garifuna people. This lively town has a Caribbean atmosphere different to the rest of Guatemala and is a great place to eat lobster or coconut prawns and listen to the local African-style ‘punta' music.

From Rio Dulce we continue to the pretty island-town of Flores, situated in the centre of Lake Peten Itzá, which was the last town to be conquered by the Spanish. Flores is our base for exploring the incredible Maya jungle site of Tikal, which was regarded as the greatest city of the Maya world. This complex is one of the biggest Maya sites discovered and will take much of the day to explore.

Today the main centre covers an area of approx. 2½ square kilometres but at its pinnacle the city stretched for nearly 100 kilometres. As you approach the site, you may see several tall mounds which are temples that have not yet been excavated. The highest Maya temple is found at Tikal (70 metres). The emphasis was on height when creating these imposing structures because the Maya believed the higher the building the closer they were to the gods. Tikal is also rich in animal life, such as the howler monkey that was sacred to the Maya, the pizote (a racoon-like animal), bird life such as toucans and, if you're very lucky you may even see a jaguar…

A short drive takes us to the Belize border and one of the least populated and smallest countries in Central America. Formally known as British Honduras, the official language is still English but almost everyone also speaks Spanish. First stop is San Ignacio. This attractive town is also known as “Cayo” and is an agricultural centre serving the areas many citrus and peanut farms. It is also known to be the ‘adventure' and ‘nature' capital of Belize, being surrounded by jungle, wildlife, waterfalls, rivers and caves. There are many optional excursions on offer, from canoeing down the river or tubing through caves, to visiting the nearby Maya site of Caracol - the biggest in Belize!



Day 6 to 7
Caye Caulker

Catching a bus through the centre of Belize, we reach Belize City and take a boat out to the Cayes (islands). Belize is a great place to relax, with favourite sayings there "No problem" and, as one sign says, "Go slow". We spend a couple of very laid back nights on Caye Caulker, where you may find that you throw away your shoes to wander the sand filled streets. Another famous sign reads “No shirt, no shoes, no problem. No money, problem!” You can spend the evenings eating seafood, drinking cocktails, and listening to reggae music in one of the bars.

During the day we can organise a range of different optional snorkelling trips for you, such as to Shark and Ray Alley. Some of you might decide to go on the ‘manatee excursion' where if you're lucky you'll see these enormous sea-cows surface to take a breath. Another optional snorkelling tour takes you out to Hol-Chan Marine Reserve where you are guaranteed to see lots of big, colourful fish. Qualified divers can explore the so-called bottomless "Blue Hole" made famous by the explorer Jacques Cousteau (please note: this optional excursion does not go every day, check locally for availability). Other options include sunning yourself on a beach, riding a bike around the island or trying your luck at fishing. If you are lucky, make sure you then take your catch to one of the local restaurants so they can BBQ it for you.



Day 8 to 10
Bacalar (Mexico) – Cancún

We travel up the coast to Bacalar, set on the beautiful Laguna Bacalar (Lake Bacalar). The lake is one of the most picturesque in Mexico and is known as the “Lake of Seven Colours” for its seven hues reflected in its depths. Here you can go swimming in the cenote where the water is lovely and warm and there is a tyre swing! Bacalar is a quiet, tranquil town, far from the crowds and noise of the larger tourist spots and our hotel is right on the lake.

From Bacalar it's only a two hour bus journey to Cancun. Until 1970 Cancún was just a small fishing village with one lone coconut plantation, but now, due to its beautiful beaches, it attracts over 2 million visitors a year. Relax on one of the beautiful beaches, swim in the turquoise waters or take a ferry out to the attractive island of Isla Mujeres, where you can organise snorkelling or drive around the island in a golf-cart.

Our tour finishes on day 10 in Cancún
