Wood used as fuel in Antigua

The name Guatemala derived from the word Goathemala which was given by the Spanish conquistadors and it derives from Quauhtlemallan a word from the Nahualt language spoken by the Tlaxcala’s natives that accompanied the conquistadors. Quauhtlemallan was a direct translation from the Mayan language’s Quiche, land of trees, or Iximche, land of corn trees, either one, more or less translates as the land of forests.
