"Author Al Argueta has done his homework for [Moon Guatemala]. His knowledge of the country and Guatemalan culture are in-depth and comprehensive. His fascination with the country and his interest in Guatemalan culture are evident throughout the book. He does an excellent job presenting Guatemala's diversity and contradictions to readers. As he writes in the introduction: 'From the chic cafés and high-rise hotels of Guatemala City to the mountain trails and quaint dirt-floor huts of the most remote Mayan village, Guatemala is an enigmatic land of culture and contrasts offering an incomparable palette of pleasures to any visitor.'"
Volker Poelzl, Transitions Abroad
"Moon Guatemala by our photographer, Al Argueta, ...has all the practical information you need, as well as plenty of background on Mayan civilisation and the recent civil war. "
