Guatemala

Guatemala is home to a colourful blend of vibrant Indian cultures, Mayan ruins, towering volcanoes, pine-forested hills and colonial cities. Mountainous landscapes dotted with pristine lakes make Guatemala a geographically rich and diverse destination, and with the largest population of indigenous people in Central America, a journey here is guaranteed to be culturally fascinating.

Wander the streets of the colonial city of Antigua, soaking up the wonderfully Central American atmosphere in the shadow of smoking volcanoes, relax by the shores of Lake Atitlan, where time seems to stand still and discover the delightful town of Chichicastenango, located in Guatemala’s highlands. Here, one of the biggest markets in Guatemala is well worth a visit, not only for the brilliant crafts and food produce, but also to observe the colourful traditional dresses of the indigenous women.

In the northern region of El Peten, its lowland jungles conceal ancient Mayan temples, foremost among which is the lost city of Tikal with its ancient pyramids and ceremonial plazas. Set deep within the rainforest, a visit here offers unexpectedly rich chances to see tropical birds and howler monkeys. Beyond Tikal, Yaxha´ is a less visited site which offers you a chance to clamber up a pyramid temple for stunning sunset views over nearby Lake Peten Itza. Not to be missed.
