Guatemala: Family Holiday

Land of Eternal Spring

Guatemala Family Holiday

Guatemala is a wonderful family destination in that there are many different things to do what will entertain and engage everyone in the family, including the children. Most children will love Guatemala's rich and varied wildlife, so at least one visit to a nature park is a must! For those who enjoy the active life, there are opportunities for snorkelling, swimming and fishing on both of Guatemala's coasts.

However, some children may find too many visits to Guatemala's many archaeological sites a little boring, so it may be a good idea to think about the different activities you want to do as a family before you go. Children are highly regarded by Guatemalan people, so you are sure to be a hit with the locals! One idea for a family holiday in Guatemala is to stay with in a local community and help a project to improve life in the village. Such packages often include lessons in Spanish too.
