Just hours away from the United States and yet worlds apart, Lake Atitlan is truly one of the most beautiful and interesting places I've ever visited... and by far a magical and inspiring backdrop for any yoga practice. Nature puts on a glorious...

5a Avenida Norte, Antigua Guatemala 03-001, Guatemala
Few cities in Central America can rival Antigua Guatemala for its setting: a mile high, surrounded by volcanoes, with a spring-like climate all year round. The first time we visited Antigua, we spent a week here, taking intensive Spanish classes...

Chichicastenango, Guatemala
These ladies pull hot fresh corn tortillas off their grill, scrape avocado out of the shell, smear it across the warm tortilla, sprinkle on some salt and queso fresco and it's all yours for about 1 Quetzal. Buen Provecho!

4a Ave Sur 24A, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
Antigua is chockablock full of beautiful and intimate posadas. We stayed at Posada del Angel. The staff is so friendly and willing to take care of your every need. The bathrooms are large and well done. The best part about our stay was breakfast...

Lake Atitlán, Guatemala
Getting to Lake Atitlan is no easy feat. After flying into Guat City, it's another 4 hours by bus to Panajachel. Then, if your'e staying on the lake, which I recommend, it's a short (and sometimes rocky) boat ride from there. But upon reaching the...

Jaibalito, Lake Atitlán, Guatemala
These two brothers were the life of the party at La Casa del Mundo. One minute they were lying with each other sweetly, the next they were clawing at each other and rolling around meowing. A true sibling relationship! There was a great swinging...

The Maya city of Chichicastenango is a great place to experience some living Maya culture as well as shop for some amazing Maya artwork to grace your home and remind you of your travels in the highlands. The most popular items are the brightly...

Carretera a San Antonio Palopó km 6.8, San Antonio Palopó, Santa Catarina Palopó, Guatemala
No trip to Guatemala is complete without at least a couple days of R&R at one of the best hidden lakeside hotels in the world, Casa Palopo. By the numbers: 7 -- the number of villas the hotel has. 5 -- the amount of stars I'd give this place. 3 --...

5A Avenida, Guatemala
The vintage charm of this Spanish restaurant fits perfectly with the architecture and Spanish colonial history of Zona 1. This place is light on tapas, but has an extensive list of delicious entrees. Tip: Order the paella!

San Agustín Lanquín, Guatemala
Semuc Champey was the highlight of my one month stay in Guatemala. After a long and bumpy ride from Lanquín and a walk from the hostel, we arrived at the turquoise water pools (where I took a dip in later). The scenery took my breath away. A 15...

Black volcanic sand, mangroves and tropical heat - Monterrico is a well known weekend destination for Guatemalans. I stayed in this village for one week taking Spanish classes at the language school and living with a local family. Everyone there...

6 Ave. Norte 1-A, Antigua, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
As shrapnel from exploding firecrackers hit my face and head, I ducked for cover but was still able to fire-off my camera. I wasn't prepared for the blinding flames and deafening sound of fireworks as the effigy of the devil was set ablaze. Every...

San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala
San Pedro brings connotations of hippies, druggies, grungy backpackers, etc but behind all that lies a sleepy little village with amazing views over the Lake. The perfect place to settle for a few days, take your feet off the road, unwind and...
