Formerly a Mayan civilisation, Guatemala offers visitors a rich historical and cultural experience. The ruins are fascinating portrayals of a culture long gone with remarkable ceremonial meaning that were astronomically aligned to provide a place where rituals could be performed. The landscape is mountainous with small deserts, dunes and undulating valleys. Then there are the highlands flourishing with mangrove forests, wetlands, lakes and lagoons perfect for the adventurous traveller. Or you can practice your bargaining skills at the bustling market of Chichicastenango which offers crafts, food, flowers, pottery and exquisite textiles. Or simply sip some coffee in a side-street cafe and taste the authentic Guatemalan coffee. Aaaaaaaaah!
