Things to Do in Guatemala

Experiences in Guatemala are vast and can encompass a wide range of interests from culture, to history, to adventure, to relaxation. There is so much to do in the country that it is almost hard to narrow down your options.

Things to do

Explore the famous, ancient Mayan city of Tikal, swim in natural rock pools of Semuc Champey, choose to hike from a number of different volcanoes, marvel at the breath-taking vistas at Lake Atitlan or maybe just stroll the cobblestone streets of Antigua. You could fill several days with activities and experiences in Guatemala and still feel like there is more exploring to do. Whatever it is you choose to include in your itinerary, a more off the beaten path experience should be expected due to the fact that Guatemala is still somewhat of a hidden gem of Central America—another reason to love it!
