Panajachel, Guatemala
The town of Panajachel, on the shores of volcanic Lake Atitlán, has become so touristed that it's sometimes called "Gringo-tenango." (Even if it's 'over-touristy,' still: GO--it's one of the most beautiful spots on Earth...) Through a...
Save Place
Tikal, Guatemala
The amazing Mayan ruins of Tikal in Guatemala. Seeing the ruins at dawn or dusk is a must. We stayed until 8pm with our 18 month old son who walked for 6 hours throughout the spectacular park. We were the last tourists to leave the park with our...

These masks adorn the wall at the restaurant on the La Lancha property. This intimate lakeside boutique resort is one of my favorite places I have ever stayed. Pictures and words don't do justice to this magical retreat. If planning a trip to...

On our first trip to Central America, my wife and I had lugged bulky hiking boots with us, just for this--a hike to the top of a volcano. But, as you can see in the photo, my wife is wearing sandals at the summit...huh? Dealing with...

Lago Peten Itza, Guatemala
While it doesn't have the dramatic volcanic landscapes of Lake Atitlán, there's a quiet tropical beauty at Lake Petén Itzá that almost brings to mind a secluded Caribbean hideaway. Paradise is in Petén !

San Agustín Lanquín, Guatemala
Semuc Champey, Guatemala is sandwiched between sharp mountains proving their youth and you would never know it was there unless someone told you to look for it. Thankfully, someone did. A downtown consists of caves lined with dozens of pools of...
