Guatemala offers the very best of Central America in condensed form. In Guatemala you will find the finest artefacts from the Mayan civilization with an abundance of impressively preserved ruins and archaeological sites, such as the town of Chichicastenango. Geologically, the country is one of the most active in the Central American region with some of its highest and most energetic volcanoes. These smoking peaks contribute to the breath-taking natural beauty on display, with dense tropical jungles giving way to irresistible highland lakes.
Mayan cultural heritage is clearly evident throughout Guatemala and locals are proud to wear the traditional dress complete with an array of bright colours. Guatemala has had an eventful past to say the least, with a brutal civil war raging between 1960 and 1996. However, peace has since been negotiated and the country has quickly transformed into a friendly, welcoming destination that is constantly opening up. There has never been a better time for you to come and discover Guatemala.
