Lanquin Caves

Lanquin Caves

What do a frog, a brain, a monkey, an alien, the Virgin Mary and Scooby Doo all have in common? Well, if you ask your guide to point them out, and use a bit of imagination, then there are rock and stalactite formations resembling each of the aforementioned in the Lanquin Caves.

Where To Stay In Guatemala City

First things first, I should mention that this article on where to stay in Guatemala City is directed purely at leisure travellers – those on business will probably have different requirements, circumstances etc.

Monkey Island

I don’t know of that many hotels with both a private lake and an island inhabited by monkeys. Welcome to Monkey Island at Las Lagunas hotel.

Semuc Champey

Considered by many to be the most beautiful spot in Guatemala (although the residents of Lake Atitlan might have something to say about that), Semuc Champey consists of a series of tiered limestone pools leading down to the River Cahabon.

Tikal

Together with Lake Atitlan and the colonial town of Antigua, the ancient Mayan city of Tikal is undoubtedly one of Guatemala’s ‘Big Three’ tourist draws.
