Guatemala sells light and color

This is the view from the dining room. Guatemala sells itself as tourist destination and they focus mainly on the colonial towns, the Mayan people, the Mayan ruins and the Lake Atitlán. Well, they are missing the gorgeous warm light and colors that are available throughout Guatemala.

Here I leave you with the image: you are having breakfast and you decide to step through the doorway to get a little sunshine and you are overwhelmed by the amount greens and reds and the stunning warm quality of the light. I buy that on the spot, wouldn’t you?

    Yes, I would buy that on the spot. The colonial towns and the anchient cultures are interesting, but I agree with you: there are magical qualities such as this that would leave a lasting impression on any visitor, yet are hard to sum up in the brochure.
