Those who have heard anything about Guatemala are aware of its troubled history: the earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the civil war that persisted from 1960 to 1996. But those who have actually been there know it to be something else: a place of extravagant beauty, soaring mountains, pristine lakes and dense jungle, dotted with archaeological treasures. Then there are the people, who are among the friendliest you’ll meet anywhere. This may be a humble country, but the list of wonders it offers is truly something about which Guatemalans can boast.

    My family with  2 active teenagers, also did 4 days in Guatemala over Thanksgiving Holiday 2015. In Antigua we visited Pacaya Volcano Tour   & Coffee Plantation tour on horseback or mule. Surprised Justin did not visit those two famous places while in Antigua. Highly recommend Guatemala for Adventure tours to keep bored teenager active, engaged and not constantly on the phones.  Your article was a very Good destination report. Thanks  Bobby
