– HERE’S THE QUICK SUMMARY –
Located just south of Mexico, this colorful landscape is home of 33 volcanoes and it is nurtured by endless rainforest. Unbelievable rich culture of an ancient civilization is preserved in daily life thousands of years later. With 21 unique mayan cultures, traces of history are found everywhere. It is the perfect mix of colonial Spanish rule, infused with traditions of the ancient maya unique cuisine.

Guatemala Language – Spanish is the official language, BUT 28 to 33 (depending on who you ask) ethno linguistic Mayan groups have kept their hereditary languages alive.
Markets – Sprawling markets in every corner of the whole country where literally everywhere you look there is something fantastic.

Long story short, after the invasion, colonization and dispossession of land fo the natives by the Spaniards, the Guatemala government was always dominated by military. In 1944, they had a revolution and for the first time they had a non military president that started a short 10 year “Democratic Spring”.
In 1962, a rebellion of young officers started a 36-year civil war known as the internal armed conflict. The war ‘ends’ in 1996 bringing democracy to the country, some economic growth and hope.
