Nestled in the heart of Central America, Guatemala is a tiny country that packs a punch. Explore the Pacific Coast looking for sleepy surf towns or head up to hike through the volcanic highlands. Wander the cobbled streets of pretty Antigua before sailing across the serene waters of Lake Atitlan. Watch lava spew into the air from the Pacaya Volcano or take a cooking class to learn to make the best guacamole. Learn about Mayan history in the ruins of Tikal and swim in the turquoise pools of Semuc Champey before indulging in lunches of fresh pepian and tamales with a cup of strong Guatemalan coffee.
