Ancient Mayan Culture in Guatemala

Nowhere is the mystical combination of ancient Mayan culture and overwhelming nature as tangible as in Guatemala . In the vast rainforests, the mighty pyramids of Tikal and Yaxha rise above the canopy and you can watch the jungle come to life in the morning. In the highlands of Guatemala you will also come face to face with the living, authentic culture of the descendants of these Mayas. Around the beautiful Lake Atitlán and in the traditional market of Chichicastenango you will meet the Tzutuhil, Quiche and Cakchiquel Maya who are distinguished by their colorful clothing and their own language. The very charming colonial town of Antigua is also located in this volcanic high mountain range, a good start and/or end point of your trip. And did you know that Guatemala also houses a piece of the Caribbean near the coastal town of Livingstone with its relaxed, swinging atmosphere.
