MORE INFO ABOUT GUATEMALA
Central America boasts a cluster of vibrant destinations often overlooked by the many regions of Mexico to the north and the larger nations of South America below. There is no better example of this than Guatemala.
Once the heartland of Maya civilisations, history has not always been kind to Guatemala. It was subject to Spanish colonial rule, and endured multiple bloody dictatorships during the 20th century. The country has many scars, but they are healing, and any visit here should remain culturally sensitive. Embrace the local people, respect their heritage and always be a conscious tourist – that’s what Culture Trip is all about.
