Guatemala is a tiny little country with a tremendous wealth of things to do and see.
From La Antigua Guatemala, you can travel to any part of the country in a day (more or less). You can visit the hundreds of pyramids of the ancient Maya in Petén. You can swim in the Caribbean sea and the Pacific Ocean on the same day. You can take daily trips to many villages in the high lands and be back on the same day. There are 33 volcanoes to hike: rivers, lakes and lagoons to take with you as memories or photographs.
However, Guatemala is not an easy country to travel, the geography of the country is up-and-downs, zig-zagging roads with lots of curves that make interesting road trips, but at the end of the day or before if given the chance, you want to take a nap on the nearest couch or bed to recoup the energy for another fascinating trip through the land of the eternal spring.
