Guatemala is a haven for adventurers, with rainforests, volcanoes and jungle trails across the country. The fascinating Mayan history has left the landscape dotted with over 1,000 heritage sites. Many of these can be visited as part of a wildlife trek, found in jungle clearings like scenes from Raiders of the Lost Ark!
You’ll find great lakes with a backdrop of high mountains, and local wildlife that includes monkeys, ocelots, crocodiles and pumas. The Caribbean coast offers the perfect vista to soothe your mind and body. It’s also thought that Guatemala gave the gift of chocolate to the world. Here it’s still consumed in its original way as a life-affirming drink mixed with chilli.
