Uncover Guatemala

Guatemala is a complex combination of customs and traditions - the only country in Central America with over 500 national dresses, where the indigenous population outstrips the Ladinos and where fervent Catholic beliefs are entwined with pagan ceremonies.

Travel to Guatemala and journey through what is essentially a land of Mayan ruins, beautiful colonial architecture, spectacular rainforest scenery, conical volcanoes and serene blue lakes. Tikal in the north is probably the best known Mayan archaeological site, rescued from the surrounding jungle and now beautifully preserved but still retaining its mystique. Lake Atitlan in the western highlands is ringed by several volcanoes giving it a somewhat foreboding character but the mood of the nearby towns of Antigua and Panajachel inject much colour and life.

Weather & Climate

Guatemala’s weather is eternally comfortable: neither too hot nor too cold, the temperature, which averages 22°C across the country, varies more according to altitude than by season.

When to go

The busiest time of the year for tourism is between December and May so visiting in other months is advised.
