Guatemala Family Vacations

  • Cobblestone streets of Antigua

Why is Guatemala a great place for a family vacation?

Guatemala is an inexpensive country which attracts families looking to immerse in the authentic culture and beautiful nature it offers. Family vacations in Guatemala often start in Guatemala City, the main hub, from where you can head to the colonial town of Antigua where customized activities can be reserved for families. Try a chocolate-making class or a day trip to Chichi Market, an amazing indigenous market where you can shop for handmade crafts and admire the beauty of volcanoes and the impressive Lake Atitlan.


What are the top family activities to do in Guatemala? 

Families will enjoy a walking tour in Antigua. Stroll through its cobblestone streets and treasure the landscape that surrounds the town; also visit one of the many cafes and restaurants. At the Chichicastenango, Market, walk around and interact with locals; you can find some of them talking in their native Mayan language. On Pacaya Volcano, roast some marshmallows on the heat of the volcanic rock and see numerous vents which sometimes yield a view of bright orange magma. At Lake Atitlan, simply enjoy the scenery, practice kayaking on the lake or take in the marvellous view by biking or hiking in the surrounded area.
