One of our all time favorite countries, Guatemala is an incredible destination! In fact, we think it’s one of the world’s most underrated travel destinations. There is so much to see in this small but diverse country.
Crossing over the border from Mexico, you’ll hop on a small boat and cruise across the river into Guatemala. From there you’ll see that the north of this country is a thick, humid jungle with so much to see. Adventures travelers will love visiting the pools at Semuc Champey, where you can explore caves with no light except for the lone candlestick you hold in your had.
Lake Atitlan is also a favorite amongst travelers, with small villages dotted along the lake’s edge. San Pedro at Lake Atitlan is a perfect place to settle for a few weeks and learn Spanish!
Whatever you decide to see in Guatemala, this country will definitely not disappoint!
