Travel to Guatemala

Guatemala was once the home of the Maya civilization. Located in Central America, it is a land filled with unique ecosystems and a high level of biodiversity.  There can be some challenges to the planning of a trip to this nation, but there are many rewards that come from a journey here as well.

The archeological sites that are found in Guatemala are one of the nation’s most popular draws for tourism. Cities like Tikal, built during periods of high cultural expression, have created landscapes where temples, altars, and even ball parks can be found in great abundance. You’ll find yourself walking in the footsteps of ancient civilizations and the feeling is both humbling and inspiring.

Because of Guatemala’s unique location, you’ll find that beaches which overlook the Atlantic Ocean are just as easy to access as the beaches which overlook the Pacific Ocean. If you love surfing or fishing, try visiting Champerico. For those who like to explore a nice promenade, Puerto Barrios and Livingston offer plenty of hidden gems to find.

A trip to Guatemala is incomplete without a visit to the Maya Biosphere Reserve. It is larger than Yellowstone National Park in the United States and is home to monkeys, crocodiles, pumas, and more. It was created in 1990 to help preserve the largest remaining area of natural tropical forest in Central America. In certain zones, no human settlements are allowed within the reserve.

Guatemala is a nation that is filled with natural wonders, beautiful vistas, and the chance to experience a sunrise on one ocean and a sunset on another. If you love to explore, this is the perfect destination for you.

VR City tour in Antigua

There is a lot of Mayan influence and culture all over Guatemala. The weather was hot and I like the bustle of mornings in a city so I walked fairly early.
