Guatemala Guatemala

Rich in Mayan and Spanish culture and known for its fascinating scenery, Guatemala is an up-and-coming travel destination in Central America, even though its location makes it a target for hurricanes.

The country also has coasts on the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean, providing tourists with ample opportunities to relax on a beach, explore the rainforest or experience local culture in the capital city, Guatemala City.
