Guatemala

GUATEMALA

Guatemala is a compact country in Central America. Located to the south of Mexico, the big neighbour in the north, you find Belize in the east and in the south Honduras and El Salvador. Despite the turmoil that Guatemala has experienced over recent years, travellers flock to this Central American country. This is largely because of its magnificent landscape and its intense history. Guatemala boasts some of the highest and most active volcanoes in Central America as well as some of the most impressive Mayan ruins.

Guatemala has approximately 10 million inhabitants. A large percent belong to 21 ethnolinguistic Mayan groups who have retained the cultural traditions they have inherited from their ancestors. A lot of very interesting sights can still be seen, most of them in the northern department called "Peten". There are also mestizo, and the Carribean coast population, which has retained its afrocarribean roots.

To this rich array of contrasts, one must add a major contributing factor to Guatemala's unique brand of beauty: its wealth of traditions, and the striking colors and patterns of the weavings of the Mayans. A visit to Guatemala is a must!
