Columbus Luxury Travel

Columbus Luxury Travel is an expert Tour Operator; it is not a travel agency.

The difference between a tour operator and a travel agency is that travel agencies act as a go-between, by booking third party operators and different airlines. Travel agencies have very little insight about their destinations and lack in-depth knowledge about specific sites and locations visited during their customer’s travel. As a tour operator, Columbus Luxury Travel organizes and operates each traveler’s trip from beginning to end, creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences that a travel agency simply cannot offer.

Columbus Luxury Travel offers a unique perspective and a special connection to one of Latin America's greatest offerings, Guatemala!​

We found out he was a Audubon member for birding! We loved the Cacao boutique hotel, the service was fabulous and the breakfast was amazing. We also really liked the facilities at the Tikal Inn. Honestly everything was wonderful and we would definitely come back to Guatemala or recommend all of this to any friends or family!
