Guatemala’s variety of landscape and villages has much to offer to visitors. It strikes the right balance between providing sufficient accommodation to fulfill the needs of tourists, while still maintaining much of the natural beauty that the land has to offer. With some locations designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, you can be sure that Guatemala’s rich history has many stories behind the places you visit.
1. Ruins of Tikal
There are many ruins to see in Central America but if you want the most grandiose, then Tikal is the place. It is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites located in the northern region of Guatemala. Depending on where you are, it may even make more sense to visit by crossing the border from Belize or Mexico. If you are stationed in the heart of Guatemala, like Antigua, you can easily book tour there.
