Guatemala Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 58%, Guatemala offers a range of experiences that span adventure activities to cultural immersion, which can be highlighted by any visit to the Chichicastenango Sunday Market - one of the largest markets in all of Central America. Another option is a visit to magical Antigua, one of the most enchanting Colonial towns in all of the Americas. Still not convinced, then make a visit to Tikal, one of the best preserved Mayan ruin sites that this region has to offer. Starting to see the trend? Guatemala has it all and it's just about the best you'll find. But if you're still not convinced, then there is also a more sedate side to the country. You can experience this at Laguna Chicabal, which has become a mecca for a full range of spiritual pursuits from yoga to meditation. If you're looking for a place to test the body and expand the mind, you can definitely find it in Guatemala.
