G is for... Guatemala
Combining elements from Spanish settlers and the native Mayan people, its distinctive mix makes Guatemala all the more beautiful. Hidden throughout mountainous terrain and forests are volcanoes, Mayan ruins and ancient lakes. For those who enjoy shopping, the colourful Chichicastenango market, also known as the 'ChiChi market', is a must.
Coming to life every Sunday and Thursday, you will find pottery, food, flowers and handicrafts. Enjoy a trip to the former capital, Antigua, a colonial city surrounded by coffee and macadamia nut plantations with tropical gardens, cobbled streets and lively festivals. A perfect place to reside is restored convent Hotel Casa Santo Domingo.
