We had a fabulous time exploring & have some great recommendations for anyone who is planning on going to this vibrant country. Here are the quick links:
Guatemala City: boutique hotel: Otelito Chain hotel: Westin Camino Real
Antigua: boutique hotel Casa Concepcion *highly recommend!
Travel Agency: Antigua Tours by Elizabeth Bell *highly recommend!
We hiked a volcano (Volcan Pacaya), explored Maya ruins of Tikal, visited Lake Atitlan (which rivals Lake Como in beauty), and visited the markets in Chichicastenego. Not being big shoppers, we could have done without the market visit, but we're glad we got a chance to experience all of it. I didn't list the restaurants, but if anyone's interested in more details of any aspect or the trip, I would be more than happy to share.
The benefit to not feeling so well after a trip is having the time to finish the video. If you'd like to explore Guatemala the way we did without stepping foot onto a plane or even leaving your computer, here you go:
