Guatemala

Guatemala is a fascinating country with a vibrant Indian culture, colorful handicrafts, ancient Mayan ruins, towering volcanoes, and stunning colonial architecture. Highlights in this Land of Eternal Spring include the beautiful colonial city of Antigua, the vivid blue waters of Lake Atitlan, the colorful highland market town of Chichicastenango and the impressive Mayan temples of Tikal.

Guatemala is a colorful blend of vibrant Indian cultures, Mayan ruins, towering volcanoes, pine-forested hills and colonial cities. A mountainous country with many lakes makes Guatemala a rich and diverse country. With the largest number of indigenous people in Central America, this is a truly fascinating destination. The highlights include the architecturally beautiful Antigua, the vivid blue waters of Lake Atitlan and Guatemala’s many stunning volcanoes. 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 pyramid temples and ceremonial plazas deep in the rainforest, and offering unexpectedly rich chances to see tropical birds and howler monkeys. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Guatemala:

  • Discover the delightful town of Chichi, located in Guatemala’s highlands. Here, one of the biggest markets in Guatemala is worth a visit, not only for the brilliant crafts and food produce, but also for the colorful traditional dresses of the indigenous women.
  • Wander the streets of colonial 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.
  • Beyond Tikal, Yax-ha 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.
