Best Places to Visit in Guatemala

Guatemala means ‘Land of Trees’ in Maya-Toltec language, and you will be pleased to know that that is not the only instance of Guatemala’s proud adherence to its glorious past. The currency, Queztal, is also the national bird, whose tail feather was once a form of currency back in the good old Mayan days. The traditional Mayan religion is also still happily practiced, along with colonial Christianity. It’s not uncommon to see, at one time or another, one of Guatemala’s 29 active volcanoes blowing off a little steam, as you hike/trek their slopes. Visit Lake Atitlan, unabashedly called ‘The Most Beautiful Lake in the World”. Make sure you stop off at the Chichicastenago (Chichi for short), considered to be the most vibrant native market in all of Central America.
