Guatemala Highlights

Tikal
Tikal's massive pyramids rise above the thick jungle canopy full of wildlife and sounds. Once the nexus of Maya culture, the city thrived as an important religious, scientific, and political center for 1500 years.

Antigua
This charming colonial town has brightly colored terracotta roofed houses, charming cobblestone streets and classy restaurants and cafes that are framed by a background of active volcanoes and indigenous villages.

Lago Atitlan
The silhouettes of volcanoes reflect off the azure-colored waters of Lake Atitlan as your boat skims across the surface. This massive lake is sacred to the indigenous populations that live upon its shores, and it's easy to see why.

Chichicastenango
Or ChiChi for short, is Guatemala's premier indigenous market town.  Every Thursday and Sunday vendors sell colorful clothing, textiles, handicrafts, food, flowers, medicinal plants and much more.

All bathrooms will have a waste basket where the toilet paper should be disposed of.
