We loved the itinerary he prepared which was a perfect mix of activity and relaxation. He came to meet us in person when we first arrived and was constantly in touch throughout our trip to ensure everything was running smoothly. Our local guides and drivers were wonderful. Esmeralda and Jonathan took amazing care of us in Guatemala. Two beautiful countries with so much to see and do and highly recommend Eduardo to anyone looking at planning a trip there. Lake Atitlan, Antigua, and Tikal were highlights of Guatemala. We also went to Semuc Champey which took some expert planning by Eduardo to make happen but we're so glad did. Travelling to the highlands of Guatemala we got to see a different side of the country and it is a spectacular place. The ATM caves in Belize was an experience I'll never forget and Caye Caulker was the perfect place for us to wind down after such an adventure!

Thus, we had to begin our trip on Day 2 of our itinerary, instead of Day 1.

Had we booked this trip on our own... we would have had a problem rearranging our pick up times. We had Pablo as our guide for the half day bike ride in Antigua and Pablo has a wonderful personality and was patient with our 12 year old. We appreciated having Pablo. Our trip didn't have any hiccups. All the drivers/guides were either on time or early and we had maybe 10 different times/days to meet up. Don't be shy about getting Eduardo's WhatsApp chat info BEFORE you depart for your trip. He'll be super responsive on WhatsApp.

Hotel Reviews
Jungle Lodge Tikal
Peten

For some reason, our hotel room did not have hot water. And for the bed, we each got one sheet as the cover. And the windows actually didn't close all the way. It was December and we all had to sleep in our street clothes and I had to use my jacket as my cover. Just make sure you have warm PJs and a warm coat to cover yourself, and probably skip the shower until your next hotel.

Having hot water in the shower. Having a bedcover on the bed, and not just one thin sheet as the cover.
Hotel San Jorge
Antigua

This one looked okay from the outside, but inside the room, it was really old. Bed was uncomfortable, sheets were clean, but the blanket and bed cover were old and worn. They need to replace all their beds and beddings. The towels were nice though. The location was very convenient. The breakfast was kinda sad. The staff were lovely, but the breakfast was just so so.

Surprisingly, this hotel was simple, yet just right. The beds were comfortable, the shower was strong and the staff was helpful. We got picked up by a staff from the Ferry and he was helpful.

Ramon's Village Resort
San Pedro

This was a nice resort. There was a restaurant onsite, and there's also a pier onsite where you can book any water activities (fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving) when you are there so you don't have to worry about booking months in advance for the activities. We booked a half day fishing trip and a fisherman (Tino) picked us up in a boat and took us to maybe 4 spots to fish. We caught about 15 or 20 fish, and took 4 with us when we left. He gutted the 4 fish and we brought it to the resort restaurant where for $10 per person (there were 3 of us) they cooked the fish, and gave us rice/salad as sides. It was a wonderful experience to eat your own catch. The hotel will pick you up at the ferry and drop you off when you depart. We also rented a golf cart for 3 hours from the hotel to drive around the island. Beware, there were lots of mosquitos in our hotel room though! We had to kill about 3-4 mosquitos each night before we went to bed.

Snorkeling Tour in the Belize Barrier Reef
Caye Caulker

This snorkel trip to the Hol Chan departed from Caye Caulker, which was pretty far. I think if the visitors are also saying in San Pedro, then it would be a shorter distance to travel from San Pedro to the Hol Chan reserve for snorkeling.

the guides provided in every location, but especially Honduras, Tikal and Alex in Antigua were exceptional.
Mayan civilization, which my trip was designed to highlight was a revelation and deeply moving.

An interesting hotel, with pretensions of being 5 star. It's not. Things to keep in mind: Food was good but way overpriced. Strong recommendation, is to eat outside of the resort at local places for half the price if not cheaper. Electricity is only available around breakfast/lunch/dinner time. Wifi was only available at the lobby, zero internet in the rooms. staff at the restaurant were exceptional, staff as reception could have been better. Location inside the archeological site is the only reason to stay there. Keep in mind, that entrance to the site at all times requires different tickets, early morning(great to see the sunrise and starting at 10.
