Guatemala is a country of volcanoes, Mayans and colourful markets.
This picture of two Mayan women strolling through an Indian market, with volcan San Pedro in the background, is a good representation of many a traveller’s favourite destination in Central America.
Framed by three volcanoes, Aldous Huxley described Lake Atitlan as ‘the most beautiful lake in the world’.
The tourist village of Panajachel is situated on the northern coast of the lake.
Another famous market town in Guatemala is Chichicastenango.
Mayan Tikal and colonial Antigua are also very popular with foreign tourists.
