Renowned for being one of the most serene travel destinations, Guatemala is a place to be. Despite the fact that Guatemala features great natural attractions such as Lake Atitlan, ancient ruins such as Tikal, and incredible colonial towns such as Antigua, the country attracts fewer tourists all year round. This makes Guatemala a place to enjoy not only the most serene vacation experience, but also offers you the chance to actively participate in some entertaining activities.
