RECOMMENDATIONS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

Start your morning with a delicious cup of Guatemalan coffee, grown on the highlands of the country. Once you’re ready, prepare yourself to take a tour around the city. A certified guide can take you to the most renown and picturesque areas, specially the Historical Center, which has been declared National heritage. Here you can visit the National Palace, the Cathedral, the Central Market, and much more. Also, visit the Handicraft Market for some souvenir shopping.

AFTERNOON

Antigua Guatemala is the perfect place to visit during the afternoon. On the journey, delight yourself with the beautiful landscapes along the way. Once you arrive, get ready to enjoy an extraordinary preserved Spanish colonial town, perfectly located between the Water, Fire and Acatenango volcanoes. Make sure to visit the stunning array of museum and ruins, the markets, and the cathedral.

EVENING

Once you are back to the city, the best way to end your day it’s to take a relaxing massage at our SPA InterCotinental, and then walk down the lobby to enjoy a nice dinner at any of our gourmet restaurants with options of Asian, Mediterranean and ¨Build Your Own¨ Cuisine. If desired delight yourself with a Cacao Tikal Martini at Maya Lounge.

INSIDER TIPS

LOCAL CULTURE

ARCHAEOLOGY

One of Guatemala's most mystical features is its archaeological heritage, the heart of the Maya World. There are countless sites throughout the country that represent the prehispanic Maya Civilization. The signature site is majestic Tikal and Yaxha with its main walk ways and beautiful lagoon; El Mirador, the largest pyramid by volume in the world; Takalik Abaj with the terraces rising 1500 meters from the Pacific and spanning the Olmec to the Maya Civilizations. As archaeologists learn more about the way the Maya lived in harmony with nature and on a sustainable basis, sites like El Pilar, by the Beliza border, recreate a Maya forest garden. It is no coincidence that the newly renamed Peten airport is now the Mundo Maya Airport and that Guatemala is more and more validating her claim as the hearth of the Maya World. The names roll off the tongue: Topoxte, Nakum, Cancuen, Kaminal Juyu, Quirigua, Uaxactun and Iximche, the ancient Kaqchiquel capital.


Buses or camionetas

Public buses in Guatemala are named ;camionetas;. They cost Q 2.00 (Quetzal), which is about USD0.25. The service is available from 05:00 to 21:00 hours.


CULTURE

Guatemala is a multicultural and multilingual country. Twenty-two Mayan languages are spoken, and Spanish is the official language.


LIVING CULTURES

If there is a single feature that makes Guatemala unique, it is the living indigenous culture which envelops daily life, specially in the highlands. Color, traditions, language, ritual and custom dominate in almost half the country as Guatemala's 23 ethnic groups proudly cling to their ancestral ways, differentiating their hometown by wearing their distinctive hand woven attire. "Vibrant", "kaleidoscopic", and above all "authentic" are adjectives that stand out when describing highland life. Saints' names superimposed on traditional indigenous names dominate the country`s geographical atlas: San Francisco Panajachel, Santiago Atitlan, San Pedro Carcha and San Jose Poaquil join tongue-twisting Chichicastenango and illustrating the blendings of venerable indigenous with more modern Christian traditions.


WEATHER

Guatemala is frequently referred as the "Land of eternal spring" due to its tropical weather with an average temperature between 22° to 29° Celsius (72° to 84° Fahrenheit).
