    Puerto Quetzal/Guatemala
    After a relaxing day at sea, the legacy of the Maya entices you into the rainforest: fly to the Tikal National Park*, where the pyramids, temples and palaces were built in honour of the gods and god kings. The 80,000 people who are said to have once lived here disappeared suddenly in the 8th century. Antigua* has plenty of colonial charm: on a stroll through the old town, you can see evidence of the town’s earlier wealth reflected in its beautiful baroque architecture.

By contrast, the huge Miraflores Locks are symbolic of more modern times. Gatun Lake* was created artificially to build the Panama Canal. These days, its side branches are home to capuchin monkeys, caimans and toucans. You will get a spectacular view of the rainforest from the cable car*, which takes you high over the tree tops.
