At a Glance

For outdoor enthusiasts and Maya history buffs the Central American neighbors of Belize and Guatemala offer the best of both worlds. Alongside your grandchild, venture on an active exploration of Maya ceremonial artifacts while swimming to a jungle cave. Discover the jewel of Maya civilization with local experts on an exploration of the ancient ruins of Tikal. Experience Belize from a different point of view while rappelling down a 300-foot sink hole, and search for tropical fish as you and your grandchild snorkel in the South Water Caye Marine Reserve. Lush rainforests with orchids, howler monkeys and hundreds of exotic birds make getting to these magical and mysterious Mayan sites half the fun.
