It’s not often that visitors to a relatively small country deliberately avoid the nation’s capital but, with Guatemala City, that is very much the case. Is it that bad?
Despite its rich Mayan history, Guatemala is surprisingly short when it comes to stand-out museums although the capital, Guatemala City, does have a couple of options.
Situated amidst scenic countryside at an altitude of almost 2,000 metres, a visit to the small market town of Chichicastenango features on almost all holidays to Guatemala.
Guatemala City is not over-endowed with sites of tourist interest but, if you’re in the city with time to burn, then Casa MIMA is definitely worth a visit.
