Guatemala is a country of dramatic landscapes and intriguing Maya history. Amid verdant rainforests and soaring volcanoes, you can discover the awe-inspiring temple and crumbling remnants of this formerly great civilization.
See the handsome colonial architecture in its cities, and especially its atmospheric capital of Antigua. Relax and soak up the jungle’s natural charms or journey through the landscape at speed, whether the churn and tumble of white-water rafting, paragliding, ziplines through the jungle canopy, scuba diving, or hikes on incredible igneous slopes.
Nature is in the ascendancy here with only 2% of Guatemala’s dazzling landscape organized into urbanity. Tour its volcanic ridgelines, mirror-like crater lakes, and cool caves. When you reach the edge of the land, you’re either standing in the Caribbean or the Pacific with all that these stunning coastlines have to offer.
