Travelling as a Family
PTP Mundo Maya family trips have a very special place, we see them as generators of unique and unforgettable experiences and for that reason we develop programs with activities of coexistence with the goal of the family living encounter.
Guatemala is a destination where the mixture of its history, culture, nature and experiences can be applied in a sustainable and balanced way to a family trip.
