Known as “the country of eternal spring,” Guatemala is one of the most traveled destinations in Central America. Although Guatemala is currently undergoing urbanization of luxury hotels, cruise ports, and more, it is a best practice for visitors to stay within well-traveled areas while there. Visit remarkable Mayan ruins, see the preserved colonial city of Antigua, and witness the vibrant indigenous culture there. Amidst a developing ecotourism industry, adventurers can see stunning landscapes of volcanoes, highland lakes, and diverse wildlife as well.

The Mayan ruins, the beautiful scenery, and the Spanish colonial towns are a large force behind the tourism industry in Guatemala.
There is a variety of local transportation to choose from, including buses, tuk-tuks, shuttles, taxis, and minibusses.
The official currency of Guatemala is the quetzal. Although U.S. dollars are accepted in most places, it is best to have the local currency on hand.
