Guatemala's stunning natural beauty is yours to discover during this scenic half-day journey to Quiriguá National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Depart the pier for the 1.5-hour drive to Quiriguá National Park, located on the plains of the Motagua River. The longest river in the country, the Motagua was used by the Maya and served as one of their most important waterways. En route, a brief stop will be made to learn about Guatemala's banana industry, and take in scenic views and photographs of your surroundings.

Quiriguá was established in a fertile valley at the edge of the Motagua River between 250 and 550 AD. Once a magnificent Mayan city, Quiriguá is now an impressive archaeological site of the early Classic Period, and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stela E, the tallest stelae in the Mayan world, is found at this site.

Upon arrival at the Quiriguá National Park, you will take a 1.5-mile guided walking tour through the park. Along the way, you will take in spectacular views of the picturesque flora and fauna.

Following your visit, refreshments will be served before re-boarding your coach for the return drive to the pier.

Please note: The drive between the pier and Quirigua is approximately 1.5 hours in each direction. This tour involves a 1.5-mile walk over bumpy and uneven ground, and is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or guests who utilize a wheelchair. Wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and comfortable walking shoes, and bring sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and sunglasses from the ship.
