COUNTRY INFORMATION: Guatemala is a small country with much contrast and tradition – the magic, color and adventure are not only seen but also felt deep inside. This is the land of the Mayan people – an advanced civilization whose legacy lives on within the noble warm hearts of their descendants. The Guatemalan people welcome guests with open arms, friendly smiles and generosity unmatched. Learn about this magical land of diversity and adventure, and come tour with us in the heart of the Maya World.

LAKE ATITLAN: The ultimate high for hopeless romantics and adventurers. Located in the western highlands, this mountainous region is known for its indigenous traditions, folklore and the resplendent Lake Atitlán. The fertile soils of these winding mountains, magical volcanoes and beautiful valleys, became the land of the Cack’chiquel, Quek’chi, Mam and Tzutujil, ethnic Mayan groups whose traditional indigenous culture continues to reign and develop.
