Silversea Luxury Cruises À SANTO TOMAS

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Santo  Tomas, Guatemala

Guatemala's short Caribbean shoreline doesn't generate the buzz of those of neighboring Belize and Mexico. The coast weighs in at a scant 74 mi (123 km), and this mostly highland country wears its indigenous culture on its sleeve and has historically looked inland rather than to the sea. You'll be drawn inland, too, with a variety of shore excursions. This is the land of the Maya, after all. But there's plenty to keep you occupied here in the lowlands. Tourist brochures tout the Caribbean coast as "The Other Guatemala". View more

The predominantly indigenous and Spanish cultures of the highlands give way to an Afro-Caribbean tradition that listens more closely to the rhythms of far-off Jamaica rather than taking its cue from Guatemala City. Think of it as mixing a little reggae with your salsa.

Castillo de San Felipe

Located on Lake Izabal is the Castillo de San Felipe, the Spanish fort built to protect the Rio Dulce from invading pirates. Take a brief boat ride to the fort for an inside visit. Located just minutes from the bridge, the Castle of San Felipe was built during the 17th century in honor of the Spanish King Felipe II. The fort, with its powerful battery of cannons strategically positioned at the entrance to Lake Izabal, offered protection to Spanish ships crossing its waters, and transporting products and supplies to and from Spain and Havana. Its walls offered protection from pirates that used to navigate the river and attack the boats they encountered along the way.


In 1686, a pirate assault burned most of the fort and the attacks continued until a series of treaties were signed between Spain and England. As a result, the Castillo lost its importance as a defensive fort, and was converted into a prison. It was later abandoned, and fell into a state of disrepair until its renovation by Architect Francisco Ferrus in 1955. Although rebuilt based upon its original plans, the Castle of San Felipe still retains two cannons dating back to the 1790s, and a pair of 400-year-old towers.


Following your tour, proceed to the Catamaran Hotel for refreshments before returning to the ship, approximately 1-hour away.

Upon arrival, board a coach for the scenic 1-hour drive along rainforest-lined roadways. Along the way, your guide informs you about the region in preparation for your visit to Tikal, the greatest Mayan city known and studied to date, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Tikal National Park
