Guatemala

Guatemala has it all. From volcanoes to limestone pools, Mayan ruins and lakes full of manatees – whatever you are after, you will find it here. The country might be tiny, it has roughly the same size as the state of Tennesse, but it is so varied that you can easily spend weeks exploring every corner.

The main issue is that most of us don’t have weeks or even months to travel to every Guatemalan village. But even in a week or two, or maybe four, you can have a brilliant holiday here.

I absolutely loved Lake Atitlan. Imagine a very blue lake surrounded by mountains, with lots of cute villages dotting the shore. If you come to Guatemala, you should definitely stop here. Take as much time as you can because there are lots of things to do and see.

One of my favourite parts about Lake Atitlan was going to the many villages that surround the lake. We took a boat and just hopped from one place to another. Along the way, we admired street art, sat in cafes and tasted local chocolate. It was an amazing day. I just advise you to start early, because the weather tends to get more and more cloudy during the day.

If you’re heading to Lake Atitlan yourself, here are my five favourite villages that you should visit.…
