Guatemala

Additional Information

Find more Guatemala information on the sites listed below.

Guatemala is a country with mountainous highlands; 33 volcanoes paralleling the Pacific coast 50 to 75 miles inland (three are active); world-renowned Lake Atitlan (surrounded by three of those volcanoes); tropical jungles; and abundant wildlife, with hundreds of bird species, plus spider and howler monkeys, agoutis, coatis, 4-foot long iguanas, and crocodiles.

The colonial Spanish capitol of Antigua is a world heritage site, and there are many extensive Mayan ruins, the best known being Tikal. And Guatemala has the largest percentage of indigenous peoples in Central America, direct descendants of the Mayans whose highly developed civilization collapsed in the 9th century AD. 

There is much to get to know and see in this small Central American country.
