At a Glance

The lives of modern-day Maya are deeply entwined with the traditions and ruins left behind by their ancestors — a truth that has shaped Guatemala into a fascinating center of history. In contrast, the lush biodiversity of Costa Rica’s cloud rainforests and pristine beaches offer an entirely different legacy, and one that has inspired naturalists and scientists around the world. Immerse yourself in the human and natural legacies of Latin America as you experience Guatemala and Costa Rica — meeting native people, exploring ancient ruins and delighting in nature’s bounty.
