TOUCH THE SOUL
Places to see in Guatemala
With its towering volcanoes, serene lakes, and colorful Mayan heritage around every turn, Guatemala touches the soul of every visitor who sets foot on its majestic soil.
Set in the Central Highlands and flanked by three volcanoes, Antigua boasts an outstanding display of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century architecture.
You’ll find long cobblestone streets, colorful stucco houses, pastel facades, central window niches, and low bell towers. Antigua’s architecture is evident in the notable religious masterpiece Las Capuchinas and the church of La Merced, whose facade is one of Antigua’s most beautiful.
Something for everyone
An hour’s drive east of Antigua, in the southern part of the country, Guatemala City has something for everyone. Whether you’re on a family trip to Guatemala or traveling with your partner, Guatemala City delights.
You can experience outdoor activities, shopping, museums, and cultural tours. In addition, as you explore the capital city’s top attractions, you can immerse yourself in the local culture, traditions, and cuisine. The diverse nature of the bustling transit system, thoroughfares, and peaceful squares tucked throughout the city provide both excitement and relaxation along your journey.
Heart of the Western Highlands
On the other hand, about three hours west of Antigua lies the heart of the Western Highlands. Lake Atitlán is a crater lake surrounded by verdant hills, three towering volcanoes, and more than a dozen small villages. And each village has its own personality!
It’s easy to see why Brave New World author Aldous Huxley considered Lake Atitlán “too much of a good thing,” even going so far as to compare it to Italy’s Lake Como. Lake Atitlán is a natural and cultural sight to behold.
Northern Guatemala’s Petén Province holds one of the major sites of Mayan civilization.
Tikal National Park is home to diverse flora, jaguars, bird species, and more. In addition, Tikal houses innumerable architectural and artistic remains from its days as a political and military center. In the park’s Great Plaza—a vast expanse ringed by terraces, palaces, and ball courts—the imposing Temple of the Grand Jaguar and the Temple of the Masks stand in eternal face-off on opposing ends.
