Guatemala is a poor country with many things to see and do. There are famous Maya-ruins near Tikal in the tropical forest. There is volcanic, picturesque Lake Atitlan with nearby Panajachel and Chichicastenango, where many locals sell their stuff on very colorful markets. Last but not least you can get 1:1 Spanish classes in the very beautiful and former capital, Antigua Guatemala.
Below are our most visited cities, destinations and national parks in Guatemala.
Antigua Guatemala (55)
Old Guatemala is a nice, colonial city amidst several active and inactive volcanos. Several tourists settled here and opened little shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.
If you like to learn Spanish, this is certainly one of the better options with a wide variety of schools. 4-6 hours per day for a month with overnight stay at a local family and you are ready to discover Latin America.
Tikal is famous for its ancient Maya civilisation and ruins.
Lake Atitlan (29)
Lake Atitlán is a lake in the Guatemalan Highlands of the Sierra Madre mountain range, with two volcanos, and the deepest lake in Central America. Panajachel is the pleasant city where most tourists will stay and do shopping.
Chichicastenango is best known for its colorful market, where local vendors in typical traditional Guatemalan clothing sell all kinds of everything.
