Coppola Resorts + Backroads Partner on Exclusive Central American Itineraries
From the spellbinding Maya temples at the World Heritage Site of Tikal, to rain forest trails and the Caribbean, adventure seekers of all ages will enjoy immersing themselves in the diverse cultures and scenery that Central America has to offer.

The Family Coppola Resorts and Backroads have teamed up to give individuals and families the ultimate travel experience in Belize and Guatemala, especially those looking for an off-the-beaten-path trip in an exotic destination. Immersed in breathtaking scenery varying from the broadleaf jungle and pine forest of Blancaneaux Lodge to the soaring majesty of Lago Petén Itzá beneath La Lancha, Backroads guests can enjoy dynamic outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, canoeing, caving, swimming, and snorkeling. Birding enthusiasts will love spotting the hundreds of bird species that call Belize and Guatemala home, while snorkelers can explore expansive offshore caves on the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere.

“For over 36 years, Backroads has set the bar high with our expertly curated trips across the globe,” said Backroads Founder and President, Tom Hale. “We are excited to be expanding our trip offerings into Belize and Guatemala and to provide our guests with the unique opportunity to stay at eco-friendly Family Coppola properties. Backroads guests can relax and recharge surrounded by rain forest and nature after an expertly designed active, fun-filled and action-packed day spent exploring."

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Backroads to offer our guests these once in a lifetime experiences,” said Myriam Kournaf, Managing Director of the Family Coppola Resorts. “Backroads adventure-loving clientele are a perfect fit for the remote luxuries our Central American properties have to offer.”

Travelers drawn to different cultures will appreciate a thorough introduction to Central America’s diverse population (Maya, Mestizo, Garifuna, Spanish, Creole, East Indian and Mennonite) by exploring with Backroads such sacred locales as the iconic Mayan civilization of Tikal or visiting a Guatemalan family. Whether on land or by the sea, the combined Family Coppola Resorts–Backroads itineraries have something every adventure seeker will love.
