Guatemala

Tailor Made Tours To Guatemala – Intricate and patient, Guatemala resonates like the fine designs of its Mayan textiles. This is a place of strong impressions. Speaking 20 separate languages, Mayas comprise over 60% of the population, making this Central America’s most indigenous nation. Although long on tradition, the modern political face of Guatemala has been one of corruption, violence and injustice. Yet despite generations of hardship, citizens remain mostly open and accessible to visitors. Immersion in this fascinating world starts with a visit to its world-class markets. Landscapes are diverse and evocative, from coffee estates and colonial towns to magnificent Mayan ruins, rumbling volcanoes and empty surf breaks.
