Guatemala was the last stop on our Mexico tour. This country was the center of the ancient Mayan civilisation, before being conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century. It was originally planned to be 3 days of relaxation for us, experiencing the culture and cuisine of Guatemala.

Instead, it became a very adventurous last 2 days for us. From hiking an active volcano to exploring Mayan temples deep in the jungle, I had very enjoyable experience in this small, sometimes overlooked country in Central America.
