During the rainy season (May thru October), every hill around La Antigua Guatemala gets a new emerald green dress. In the picture above, we see the hill near La Ermita de La Santa Cruz ruins, right across from the Pensativo River, with a verdant dress made from coffee bushes and gravileas shadow trees in the lower half and all kinds of trees in the upper half. Like I said in A Million Shades of Green: “Fact #3: The rainy season last well over six months, thus it provides enough water to keep the whole country with a million shades of green year round.” You should read the other facts about Guatemala.
