I studied Spanish in Antigua for three months a million years ago, and spent lots of time traveling around Guatemala -- up to Lake Atitlan where you can hike volcanoes, over to the beaches where I was surprised by the Caribbean coast's radically different culture, and up to small villages in the mountains and hills. Even after three months, I still much preferred traveling in Mexico, but the culture, the scenery, the artisan crafts, and the indigenous people make an amazing visit.

Compact, friendly and thoroughly lovely, Guatemala packs a lot into its tiny size. From the colonial charm of Antigua to the colorful markets of Chichicastenango, from village-hopping around Lake Atitlan to the volcano trekking near Quetzaltenango to some of Mesoamerica's most stunning temples at Tikal, it's an easy choice for anyone looking to dip their toes in Central America.

Guatemala is a country with a lot of social and political problems. The drug trade and gangs have made parts of the country unsafe. Poverty has led to some major environmental issues with deforestation in the north. Nevertheless, Guatemala has a long history and unique culture that is worth getting to know. Beautiful natural wonders like Lake Atitlan combine with historical sites from a vast range of eras (Antigua, and Tikal for example)
