Small town near Guatemala City and Antigua lives for the Festival of gigantic kites. This tradition exists in some parts of Guatemala for a long time now. To be there on Day of the dead is quite a unique experience...

Home to a population of 12 million, there is an exquisite cultural mix of 22 Maya ethnic groups. A hot coastal climate is perfectly balanced with a temperate climate in the highlands. Guatemala is a county of contrasts, emotion and adventure. The country’s natural and cultural treasures are even further enhanced by the fabled warmth of…Continue
