The Republic of Guatemala is a country in Central America bordered by Mexico to the north and west, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, Belize to the northeast, the Caribbean to the east, and Honduras and El Salvador to the southeast. Guatemala is a magical place. Perhaps most stunning are the incredible stark landscapes, which range from the breathtaking mountains of the central highlands to the volcanic black sands of the Pacific Coast. The most visited places are the Lake Atitlán – the biggest lake in Guatemala offers breath-taking views from any of the three volcanoes surrounding it, Todos Santos - the town that holds truest to the ancient Mayan traditions and Pacaya Volcano – the Guatemala’s only active volcano. Another place worth to visit is Chichicastenango, one of the largest markets in all of Central America.
