Why travel to Guatemala?

Guatemala has one of the richest indigenous cultures in Central America. The modern day Maya live in traditional ways, but have adapted - in many cases - to contemporary Guatemala. In many Maya communities you will see cement homes, but with a traditional clay temescal (sauna) in the yard or a wood-frame kitchen building. The Maya are initially guarded people, but with a simple smile they are eager to welcome visitors and guests into their communities and homes. Their culinary and handicraft traditions are strong and we are working with our local guides to help preserve these. The Guatemalan people are welcoming, lodges and hotels offer excellent service at an international standard.

Guatemala has a diverse flora and fauna including lush jungles. Birding and wildlife viewing in the jungles and forests of Guatemala is impressive and most African Safari Company & Expeditions visitors to the Peten can expect to see toucans, a variety of monkeys - spider and howler, ground mammals such as agouti and coati mundi and the luckiest could spot a jaguar! Should you be interested in birding tours to Guatemala, please let us know and we can tailor make a tour to suit your interests.
