As if you needed another reason to book your next holiday in Guatemala.
We think this are the best places to travel in Guatemala.
1. Tikal: Tikal, a major Pre-Columbian political, economic and military centre, is one of the most important archaeological complexes left by the Maya civilization. Specially recommended for people interested or passionate on history, archeology, ruins or family trips.

3. Livingston: Livingston is a mostly Garifuna small town. The Garifuna are descendants of kidnapped West Africans brought to the New World on European and American slave ships who somehow escaped or survived shipwreck, and the Carib Indians who gave them shelter. Recommended for family trips, solo traveler or couples.

8. Quetzaltenango or Xela: The second most important city in Guatemala, not too big, not too small, enough foreigners to support a good range of hotels and restaurants, but not so many that it loses its national flavor.
