Guatemala Things to See and Do

There are so many things to do in Guatemala, ranging from day hikes to yoga retreats. You can visit the ancient city of Tikal -- one of the most important cities in the Mayan empire, or venture to Antigua's most impressive church, La Merced. Spend some time on the coast or climb the popular and active Pacaya volcano. This country has it all; mountains, forests, indigenous villages and coast. There are plenty of things to do in Guatemala; whether you're planning a weekend getaway or a longer trip, you won't run out of activities in this gorgeous and culturally rich country.
