Hola, welcome to Guatemala! Adventure awaits, prices are reasonable and the locals are happy to have you! This country grants you the opportunity to get lost in beautiful caves, jungles, temples, parties, beaches, and rivers. To explore it in its entirety, it’s suggested to discover the area over 4-6 weeks. Although traffic may be chaotic in some regions, it is well worth it to see natural wonders like the emerald pools of Semuc Champey, the manmade wonders of Tikal, and the beautiful colonial cities that dot the map of Guatemala.
You’ll find meals that foods offered here are brimming with rice, beans, tortillas, pasta, bread, corn tamales, and potatoes and plantains. Meals complete for carb lovers! A popular chicken preparation is pepian, which has a delicious pumpkin-seed (pepita) based sauce. For beverages, make sure to try a limonada con soda: fresh-squeezed lemonade made fizzy with soda water.
