Guatemala is more than the jungle-piercing Mayan ruins of Petén, the volcano-ringed waters of Lake Atitlán, and the vibrant colonial architecture of Antigua. Guatemala is its humble, honest, and hard-working people, the pit-pat and sizzle of tortillas cooking over an open flame, and a resilient indigenous culture that dots the highlands with color and life. The writer of this guidebook spent three years in Guatemala as a Peace Corps Volunteer, where he had the unforgettable opportunity to work, live, and form friendships in the country's most rural regions. Gained from firsthand experiences, this book provides you with local knowledge and insight into the very best that this enchanting country has to offer. With this book in tow, Guatemala is sure to become a place you'll never forget.
