Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Border Crossings

This trip includes one day of longer shuttle time from Guatemala to Belize, with an international border crossing. Even with the expert facilitation of your Backroads Trip Leaders, border crossings can take time. While patience and a sense of humor are never out of place at international customs, we'll minimize the obstacles and make this border crossing just another stop on the adventure.

Commercial Flight Schedules

This trip includes travel on a commercial flight so that we can explore the best of your destination. Please note that flight schedules can change with little advance warning, which may require us to adjust our activities on a travel day. Your Trip Leaders will provide more details on any changes should this occur.
