Guatemala is a country of spectacular natural beauty with picturesque highland lakes and lush jungle, smoking volcanoes and lovely colonial towns. This Central American gem remains refreshingly off the well-trodden tourist trail despite its many wonderful attractions; the picturesque colonial town of Antigua, nestled among three volcanoes; Lake Atitlan, arguably one of the worldâ€™s most beautiful lakes; and magnificent Tikal, located in the heart of the rainforest and regarded as the greatest city of the Mayan world. Other highlights include the colourful Chichicastenango (Chichi) market and Livingston, a lively town with a Caribbean vibe, surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable.
Hidden away in a rainforest in Guatemala are the ruins at Tikal - one of the largest archaeological sites of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979, some of the monuments at Tikal date as far back at the 4th century BC and are fascinating to explore.
