Guatemala punches well above its weight when it comes to the richness of what you can see and do there. In our travel guides, our specialists have looked at Guatemala through the lens of bigger themes and cultural characteristics you’ll find occurring across Central America, to help you make the most out of your trip. They’ve pinpointed Guatemala’s best example of colonial architecture in Antigua, and its standout Maya ruins at Tikal and El Péten. And they explain how you can, if you wish, weave these into a longer, wider-ranging trip around Central America.
