This complete guide to Guatemala includes special sections on family travel, Mayan history and culture, and detailed itineraries.

Guatemala delivers what adventurous travelers dream of: exotic birds and wildlife, world-class caving, whitewater rafting, zip-lining through the jungle, fascinating Mayan ruins, vibrant cities, and riotous indigenous festivals and markets. Like Guatemala itself, this guide combines the best in adventure, nature, and culture to create indelible travel memories.

Author Conner Gorry is a solo woman traveler, and that translates into insightful text that keeps an eye on travel safety issues. Detailed itineraries offer invaluable, road-tested advice, while comprehensive history and information on Mayan culture imbue your trip with context and meaning. Gorry covers the top tourist destinations with the knowledge only experience can bring; she also emphasizes sustainable travel options that support local communities and minimize environmental impact. Including sections on health, language, and traveling with children—everything you need to have a fun, adventurous, safe, and authentic travel experience is right here.

More than 100 photographs and detailed maps round out the information, providing everything you need to make the most of your visit.
