Are there any tours that anyone recommends for the Ruta de Maya through Mexico, Guatemala and Belize. I found one Amerika Venture out of Quebec Canada. Thoughts, Comments. I'm a women travelling alone and would prefer a group.

you might consider GAP adventures, they do adventure group travel.
Also, try going to STA/Travel Cuts/Adventure Travel Company - they have branches throughout Canada usually located in the university areas of main cities. They would also have brochures on that. Reply to this

Hi, my wife and I are already set up for a tour with Tucan Travel, starting in Antigua, Guatemala and ending in Cancun, Mexico. Going via Copan, Tikal, Tulum, Rio Dulce, etc. Its called the Iguana Tour and they start every week or two and last 13 nights. You can check them out at Tucantravel.com. Hope this helps.

Unless you are some sort of woos, you can see all these sites and then some by yourself. To really meet people along the way, hostels are best. Women traveling alone are common; just don't make yourself a target. Reply to this

I went on a trip with a local Mexican company called Bamba Experience for 35 days called "Best of Mexico, Guatemala & Belize Way" starting in Mexico City and ending in Cancun. Here are the places we went: Mexico City, Zapotitlan Cacti Forest, Oaxaca, Monte Alban, Mitla, San Jose del Pacifico, Puerto Escondido, Mazunte, Bamba Backpackers Paradise, Sumidero Canyon, San Cristobal, Montebello, Colon Lakes, Montebello Lakes, Palenque, Agua Azul, Misol-Ha, Panajachel, San Pedro, Chichicastenango, Antigua, Rio Dulce, Livingston, Flores/Tikal, San Ignacio, Caye Caulker, Bacalar, Majahual, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Cancun.

It was great and worth a look www.bambaexperience.com. Cheers! Reply to this

Betty I have been traveling to and across Guatemala annually for 5 year or so. Part of the trip I travel alone, staying in hostels or thru a network of people at Couchsurfers.com I have never had a problem but follow common sense practices as I would in any big city here in the USA. The other part of that travel is with a small female- owned, cultural arts focused travel company, Art Workshops in Guatemala. The director is an American woman. There, everything is taken care of for me and my class members. Escorted at all times, and the days itinerary arranged.

I rather enjoy both modes combined....the bliss found in a week of escorted travel. Followed by the craziness of being on ones own for a few days.
