The Magic of San Marcos, Guatemala

After a few days in Antigua, Guatemala, my partner and I headed towards Panajachel, from where we took a lancha to cross Lake Atitlan. My initial gut feeling was wonderful: I rejoiced at the view of the shiny blue waters and volcanoes peaking all around. Taking in the crisp breeze and dreamy landscape, the lancha driver suddenly parked at a dock and shouted San Marcos! I disembarked and started walking towards, without knowing, what would be the two weeks that were about to change my life.

LAKE ATITLAN. A MAGIC PLACE IN GUATEMALA!

Antigua Guatemala: History and What to Do

Welcome to Antigua Guatemala Guatemala is a small country located in Central America, right below Mexico and above Honduras and El Salvador. Due to its geographical location, Guatemala’s most known motto is “The Country of the Eternal Spring”. The latter means that the climate doesn’t change much throughout the year, which only makes visiting the country even more attractive.

Pacaya: Adventures on an active Volcano in Guatemala

Have you ever thought of hiking on an active volcano? Listen to the rumbling beat of nature’s unstoppable forces? Are you coming to Guatemala and are looking for excitement, fun, and rewards of an outdoors, body activating, stress-free adventure you can do in a matter of hours while being close to the city? Then Pacaya is the place to go.

El Paredón: Guatemala’s must visit beach

People say Guatemala isn’t known for its beaches. They must have overlooked El Paredón, Guatemala’s best beach and possibly one of its best kept secrets. Sure, other Central American countries beat out Guatemala in number and quality of beaches, but the experience of visiting El Paredón is too unique to compare. A rural fishing village on a black sand beach with palm trees, hammocks, and surf boards galore? You’ll be shocked you didn’t know about it sooner.
