From the coast to the highest point in Central America, at 4,211 m. (13,815 ft), Guatemala has an incredible geographic and cultural diversity. From surfing the Pacific to cruising the Carribean to a string of volcanoes, inland lakes, and rainforests, Guatemala has a world´s worth of fascinating places.

The center of the ancient Mayan Empire, Guatemala still retains its culture. With a population of 13.3 million people, 40% are Mayan Indegenous, and speak an ancient mayan language. Many wear  traditional clothing and practice Mayan culture. Later, as a center of Spanish Colonial power,  Guatemala was adorned with incredible colonial architecture. Thousands of impresive churches, monostaries, and government buildings were constructed, as early as 1519.
