Guatemala Province and Guatemala City

Guatemala province, dominated by Guatemala City, is the administrative, geographical and political center of the country. The province is centrally located, providing travelers a good starting point for their travels to such visitor hotspots as Tikal, Antigua and Lake Atitlan.

 

Other than Guatemala City, the province offers little of interest to visitors.
