LIVINGSTON – SWEET RIVER
The navigation through Rio Dulce, observing the life of the fishermen and merchants that cross it and even seeing the crocodiles, until arriving at Linvingston, where the waters of the river join with the Caribbean Sea and dominated by the castle of San Felipe. It is a city with a clear Afro-Caribbean character.
One of the jewels of the Mayan World, in the jungle of the Peten, and the highlight of any trip to Guatemala. The pyramids and temples that emerge in the middle of the dense forest, have given a name to Tikal very clarifying: the Manhattan of the Mayan world.
COPÁN – QUIRIGUÁ, HONDURAS
In the neighboring country Honduras, one of the most important Mayan archaeological sites of that country. Copán was the capital of a major Mayan empire from the 5th to 9th centuries, and its more modest neighbor, Quirigua, stands out for the precision in its sculptures and the highest stone monuments in the New World.
You can add an extra of exclusivity with a few days of beach in the keys of Belize, a true paradise of sun and beach and with a wealth without equal in its marine bottoms.
