Rain forests, snow-capped volcanoes, and magnificent lakes make up the landscape of the ancient Maya in the highlands of Guatemala.
On our tour you’ll experience a complete spectrum of history – from ancient Maya ruins to modern-day Maya cities. Our travels will take us from beautiful Lake Atitlán to the Honduran rainforest where we will visit Copán, considered the crown jewel of the southern Maya cities.
Dr. Scott Hutson, professor of Mesoamerican Archaeology at the University of Kentucky, will accompany us on the tour.

A modest amount of walking is required. Some sites have rubble, undeveloped trails and stairs. Climbing these stairs is necessary in order to see some of the ruins.

People unaccustomed to higher altitudes sometimes experience fatigue and dizziness.
