Guatemala, land of Maya people, mysterious traditions and amazing landscapes.

Quite a while ago ;-) I stayed in Guatemala for about six months, to do my traineeship at Inguat, the Instituto Guatemalteco de Turismo. Since then I follow this country and read and write about it.

Must visit: Semuc Champey

On your way from Tikal to the Western Highlands Semuc Champey ("Where the river hides under the stones") is a must-stop for some hours. Semuc Champey is a natural monument near Maya town of Lanquín.

  • Try to catch a (mini)bus from Coban to Semuc Champey directly,
