Guatemala is the most culturally intense country we visit in Central America. The warm and welcoming Maya population lives in the forested mountain highlands among splendid volcanoes and azure lakes. Some of the Guatemala tours we offer include a homestay with a local Maya family. Participating in the daily life of another culture can be fascinating and rewarding for your family, if everyone is adequately prepared for the experience. Although younger children are welcome on most of our Guatemala vacations, parents may find that the cultural focus does not hold the interest of young travelers as much as some of our other tours. Contact an Adventure Life representative for more information on whether or not this destination would be a good match to your family's interests.
