Bienvenidos! Welcome to Guatemala – a land of ancient civilisations, steamy jungles and laidback locals.
This coffee-growing, lava-flowing, jungle-clad land definitely doesn’t hold back with colour – think retro chicken buses cruising down the highway, pastel-washed colonial buildings lining the cobbled streets of historic Antigua and vibrant wares on sale at market stalls in Chichicastenango. And whether you’re cruising down the Rio Dulce to Garifuna-influenced Livingston, strolling around the quaint island of Flores in Lago Peten Itza, or trekking to the Maya ruins of Tikal, your Guatemalan adventure will unlock all but one of its highland secrets – how this Central American beauty is still largely undiscovered will continue to remain a mystery.
