|Are you planning to "follow
the crowds" to Mexico, or maybe to Belize? Why not
extend your vacation into a REAL adventure simply by taking a short
flight to one of the world's most exciting, colorful and friendly
Here are just a few "must visit"
destinations, from which you can quickly explore the country's
unique history, baroque architecture, archaeological sites and culture:
Guatemala lies southeast of Mexico and northwest of the other countries of Central America. Its location on the narrow strip which joins the continental masses of the Americas, as well as its topographic relief, give the country an enormous diversity of climatic regions.
A journey in Guatemala takes the visitor in a few minutes from the lush vegetation of the warm low lands zone to the cold of the pine forests. Most of the nine million Guatemalans live in the valleys of the mountainous regions, in the center of the country, where the climate is temperate. This is the region of lakes and volcanoes for which Guatemala is known throughout the world.
