Guatemala 2019

Guatemala 2019

Period: 19.1. – 9.2.2019

We always wanted to explore the rich biodiversity in Central America and to see the monuments from the Pre-Columbian era. Not to mention swimming in the Pacific Ocean… At the end we decided to visit Guatemala and we spent three marvellous weeks there.

Highlights of the trip:
  • Antigua – former capital and picturesque city
  • Pacaya – hummingbird paradise under an active volcano
  • Lago de Atitlán – quetzal paradise amidst volcanos
  • Acatenango – ascent to the stratovolcano with erupting El Fuego in sight
  • Monterrico – bird paradise and swimming in the Pacific Ocean
  • Río Dulce – close encounter with manatees
  • Tikal – famous Mayan city hidden in the forest
  • Yaxhá – ruins of the ancient Mayan city
