Santa Elena Vacation Packages

160 miles (257 kilometers) north of Guatemala's capital, Guatemala City, is where one can find Santa Elena.

Make some time for some last-minute gift buying for your special ones back home at the Mundo Maya International Mall.

See more of the area by enjoying a day trip to nearby San Jose Peten, and viewing some of the popular attractions, such as the Tikal and Uaxactun.

Some of our most cherished travel moments often take place in local restaurants and bars. Be sure to taste the regional food!

Local people will confirm that beans (frijoles) and chicken are on the list of the region's most frequently used ingredients.

Find out about local gastronomy by sinking your teeth into chiles rellenos (bell peppers stuffed with meat and vegetables) and gallo en chicha (chicken stew), two interesting dishes.

Indulge yourself with a bit of coconut flan, a local dessert.

It may be hard to have just one when you start drinking Victoria, a popular beer here.

If you're after a regional favorite drink with no alcohol, ask for tea.

One doesn't need to be a wine aficionado to enjoy a pleasant glass of Château DeFay White Merlot or Château DeFay Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot.

Learning the native tongue of any country will broaden your traveling experience. Take the opportunity to brush up on some basic phrases in Spanish before you visit the area. For instance, "¿Querría bailar conmigo?", meaning "Would you like to dance with me?", will be useful from time to time. Also, understanding "Este caballero pagará por todo", which translates to "This gentleman will pay for everything", is going to be another handy tool to have up your sleeve.

Some travelers appreciate participating in Independence Day on the 15th of September, a nationwide celebration.

Pack up your luggage, say, "Adiós" and make sure you've got a souvenir to take back with you.

All travelers flying to Santa Elena need to remember that the closest major airport is Mundo Maya International Airport, which is 2 miles (3 kilometers) away.
