The writer of this guidebook spent three years in Guatemala as a Peace Corps Volunteer, where he had the unforgettable opportunity to work, live, and form friendships in the country’s most rural regions. Gained from firsthand experiences, this comprehensive travel guide provides you with local knowledge and insight into the very best that this enchanting country has to offer. With this book in tow, you’re sure to get off the beaten path and discover the real Guatemala.

Explore Antigua, one of Latin America's most lively and well-preserved colonial cities. Experience Mayan culture at an indigenous ceremony or market day in the Highlands. Transport yourself back in time through a visit to the grand Mayan temples of Tikal, El Mirador, or any of Guatemala’s famous historical sites. Dive into the waters of Lake Atitlán, bask in the crystalline pools of Semuc Champey, or lounge on the rolling beaches of the Pacific Coast. Mingle with locals at one of Guatemala's numerous radiant, colorful festivals. Share a traditional meal with welcoming locals to appreciate genuine chapín hospitality.
