HEART OF THE MAYAN WORLD, COLORFUL CULTURES AND TRADITIONAL RITES
Mountainous, heavily forested and dotted with Mayan ruins, lakes, volcanoes, orchids and exotic birds, Guatemala is one of the most beautiful countries in Central America.
Its indigenous population, the Maya, make up about half of the population. Mayan languages are spoken alongside Spanish, the official tongue. Many Guatemalans are of mixed Amerindian-Hispanic origin.
The Mayas and the Aztecs were the first to appreciate the fruits of the cacao-tree, prepared as stimulating and bitter drink, which they held to their Gods.
The country of the feathered serpent “Quetzalcoatl” invites you to discover its true richness:
The magic and mystery of the Mayan world subsist in the millenary cities such as Tikal, Yaxhá, Aguateca, and Quiriguá among others. The faces, the colorful regional costumes, and the kindness of the people from the highlands are like an echo of an impressive colonial past that may be heard in the churches and convents of Antigua, the sumptuous UNESCO World Heritage site.
Such resonance is also the contact with an exuberant nature which is the origin and destination of a unique biodiversity in the world.
The most rooted indigenous culture can be found in the highlands. The pine forests and active volcanoes allow visitors to practice hiking, canopying and, ecotourism. The Western region provides a folkloric display that unifies the pre-Columbian cosmogony and the customs of the conquerors. Such region is a perfect combination of the natural beauties, like Lago de Atitlán which is considered one of the most beautiful in the world with its colorful villages, like the market of Chichicastenango, famous for its colorfulness and extension.
An astonishing world of unexpected surprises are waiting for you in Guatemala.
