loved their trip to Guatemala

Really enjoyed kayaking on lake Atitlan, the volcanoes, treks through the jungle, the town of Antigua, tubing in the caves, the markets (Chichicastanengo!), etc.

Best parts:
Guatemala is a beautiful country with a distinctive and diversified geography within a relatively small area and its people are friendly. It is a great mix of nature and native cultures. We were very lucky to have Evaneos recommend our local agency (based in Antigua Guatemala) to us. The agency (including Lorena, our agent, and Arnaud, the GM) helped us plan a comprehensive trip, executed it flawlessly, including selecting a wonderful driver for us who spoke English well and was very helpful, placing us in great hotels (some of which were drop-dead beautiful), and, in general, giving us the feeling that they were with us every step of the way (we stayed in 10 different places over a two week period. They even gave us a local cell phone.) Just incredibly helpful, smart, caring people who know their business - and the country - well. We would very highly recommend them. This is our first experience using Evaneos and I found its entire booking process, including payments, etc. to be re-assuring when you don't really know who you are relying on at the outset. Thank you!
Worst parts:
Some of the roads in Guatemala to a few of the most beautiful areas (such as Samec Champey) are a bit rough...be prepared to get shaken up a bit. We were also a bit disappointed by Livingston on the Caribbean coast - would not necessarily omit it, because the boat ride there from Rio Dolce, with stops in the biotop is great. But in general, there were no bad parts to the trip.
