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.
