Tours made for you
Ancient temples and rainforests, Mayan culture and colonial towns
See the charming and quintessential Central American country of Guatemala in fine style and comfort with Jacada Travel.
We can help you design your own custom made, luxury trip to Guatemala all around the time that you have and the interests that you hold.
This lush land of volcanoes, serene highland lakes and generous swathes of rolling jungle, also comes rich in colonial Spanish and pre-Colombian Mayan heritage. The magical site of Tikal ensconced in emerald jungle is reason enough alone to visit, then again there is the exquisite, and earthquake-defying, baroque architecture of Antigua too.
The small size of Guatemala makes it great for a short trip, or for a longer itinerary it combines well with a visit to Mexico or Belize.
Your dedicated travel designer will help you choose the perfect balance of locations, private tours with our expert local guides, and accommodation all according to your individual tastes and the style of your trip.
We can plan every step of your trip so you can enjoy the tremendous adventure and fantastic sights of Guatemala knowing that Jacada Travel are taking care of all the details. Together with seamless transfers and our truly personalised service, we not only provide peace of mind but the perfect itinerary that is all about you.

Where to go
The setting in a central highland valley ringed by three volcanoes, the city was once one of the largest seats of the Spanish colonial empire and has a perfectly preserved blend of that era’s history and its captivating baroque architecture.Discover more
The city is big and busy and while architectural gems are rather thin on the ground, it does have the country’s best museums and galleries.Discover more
Formed over 80,000 years ago by a violent volcanic eruption, Lake Atitlan is one of the world’s most beautiful lakes and both an incredibly tranquil and cultural place to relax for a couple of days.Discover more
One of the greatest sites of the Mayan civilisation to survive today, Tikal’s historical statistics and scale are impressive but it’s really the once thriving city’s contrasting thick and magical jungle location that make it so utterly mesmerising.Discover more

Another spectacular trip with Jacada! My family and I went to Guatemala and Belize over Christmas and New Year’s. The trip was planned perfectly! We spent a week in Guatemala where we hiked Pacaya Volcano near Antigua, enjoyed Christmas festivities in Lake Atitlan, and walked the Mayan ruins in Tikal. Next we crossed the border and spent the week relaxing…

We had an amazing experience for our anniversary trip. The guides and drivers took great care of us. When there was a protest that stopped traffic, our guides knew of some back roads that prevented us from waiting in traffic for hours. Each guide on our tour took extra steps to ensure we had a pleasant experience. They were all…
We had such an amazing trip to Guatemala and Belize. This is the second trip that I have planned with Jacada and both experiences were superb. It was a great experience from the beginning to the end. Our travel agent, Lily, did an excellent job making sure that the trip included all of the things that we were wanting to…
Everything turned out almost exactly as advertisied - in some cases it was better! There were few if any "bumps in the road" while we were away, and the response from the local contacts was immediate and professional. My suggestions apply to all that took place prior to leaving: 1. the Jacada Black Book was too generic to be of…
