Hampshire Hikes & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
A journey through the varied landscapes and rich Mayan history of Central America.
We start in Guatemala, a country shaped by volcanoes where Antigua City is our first stop. From there we explore Pacaya, one of Guatemala’s youngest volcanoes and enjoy a chocolate workshop. At Panajachel on Lake Atitlan, a boat ride takes us to visit a Mayan village to learn about local traditions and beliefs on a guided tour.
We then cross into Mexico’s southern state of Chiapas, staying in San Cristóbal, one of Mexico's most attractive colonial towns. From here we can visit many typical Mayan villages and hike in the Arcotete Ecopark. Next is Palenque to discover its Mayan heritage, the jungle-covered complex is probably the finest surviving Mayan site in Mexico.
We continue to Mérida to enjoy the flamingo sanctuary at Celestun. Our last stop is Chichén Itzá to uncover the famous pyramids, one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of the World’.
This tour combines two of Central America's most diverse attractions, history and unique flavours. Come experience for yourself because the world is more beautiful on foot!
