Guatemala is the most populated country in the Central American belt with around 17 Million people estimated to be living there.

After many years of turmoil a peace accord was brokered giving the chance for the tourist industry to open up. Today the tourist economy is estimated at over $1.8 billion dollars


Tikal is Central Americas largest Myan Ruin deep in the Guatamalan jungle. For the adventurers out there finding it could make for the ultimate Indiana Jones style mission, you can even take the adventure at sunrise or sunset but be aware that it takes 3 hours to get out there. 

For those looking for a different experience why not take some Salsa lessons and eat some street food and live like a local for a few days. Immerce yourself in the local culture and know you will have a trip of a lifetime.
