guatemala

Guatemala offers an unspoilt view of Central America. The Mayan communities who live in the highlands still wear traditional weavings and follow arcane religious rituals where idol worship is a main theme.

Antigua is one of Guatemala's principal destinations with its colonial architecture, tropical gardens, plazas and cobbled streets. Here you will find the cultural epicentre of Guatemala where the arts flourish and its traditions and folklore are still very much alive. The late afternoon light is truly inspiring and it is then that you see the true beauty of Antigua with buildings such as Las Capuchinas and the cathedral wonderfully illuminated.

The still active Pacaya Volcano is a marvellous place to hike and rewards climbers with some spectacular lava flows. Lake Atitlan has been called "the most beautiful lake in the world",  a wondrous place to appreciate scenery and admire the deepest lake in Central America. The lake basin supports existing Mayan communities through coffee growth and a variety of farm crops including corn and avocados. Attractive village markets like those at Chichicastenango teem with local craft and produce.

Tikal National Park is a World Heritage site with Maya skyscrapers and ancient temples pushing up through the jungle canopy. An ancient land of mystery and intrigue.
