The pacification and the democratization of the country slowly proceed; the territory from the difficult morphology, to seismic and hydrologic risk doesn't facilitate the life of the poor indios, but despite this whole country is without doubt the most beautiful of the central America.
Its towns and its villages, its customs, the splendid landscapes of the plateau and the Lake Atitlan with its tall and threatening volcanos and the strange one, beautiful atmosphere of the religious rites, where Catholicism and animism mix them in an unique match and here believable, they make the nation unforgettable and very beautiful!
On all the market and the rites of Chicicastenango are raised; the monuments and the atmosphere of Antigua; the countries around the Atitlan of Solola, S.Antonio Palopo and Santiago de Atitlan; Flores and the archaeological site of Tikal, absorbed in an exceptional tropical forest.
