A country of beauty and warmth
Frequently called the “Land of Eternal Spring” because of its highland climate, considered as one of the world’s finest and healthiest, Guatemala is a country of contrast, emotion and adventure. The country’s natural and cultural treasures are further enhanced by the warmth of Guatemalans. Guatemala is a country that is unique not only for the extraordinary beauty of the countryside, but also for the vibrant soul in the character of its people -a blend of beauty and soul.
