Guatemala is my favorite place I've ever been besides Spain. There are tons of outdoor activities- hiking volcanos, visiting coffee plantations, zip lining, surfing, etc. It's very affordable, people are very friendly and the food/drink is fantastic. In my experience there is very little English.

Gutatemala is amazing! I did the Acatenango hike in March with Wicho and Charlies and could recommend, they’re a little pricier but I had a good experience. Loved Lake Atitlan. Stayed there for 5 days and split the time between San Juan and San Pedro with some day trips. In San Pedro I can recommend a pizza place El Gato Perdido I had the absolute most amazing pizza, still dreaming about it. In San Juan I did volcano hike which was amazing (a day trip). So worth it though for the sunrise! I think San Juan is one of the bigger towns with more travelers, same with San Marco which has more yoga, vegan places.

I loved Guatemala! Antigua is so cute and charming, and I also hiked Acatenango and it was one of my all-time fave travel experiences. Being that close to an active volcano was wild. And waking up in the night to the sounds of the eruptions — wild!

I’ve been to Guatemala twice to volunteer. I always felt very safe and Guatemala in fact it’s one of my favorite places that I go. The people are very friendly, the food is delicious, and it’s a very beautiful country. Definitely go to the lake and climb the volcano. There is also a place near the lake that you can do zip lining. I did that and it was great very safe. I would highly recommend that it was super fun.

Such a beautiful country, with such kind people. If you enjoy the outdoors, hike Acatenango or Pacaya. Acatenango is rather difficult but so worth it, while pacaya is more of a simple hike. If you get a chance to go to Semuc Champey, do it - even if it’s only for a few days. And I couldn't recommend Lake Atitlan more. As for Guatemala City... there’s a cool nightlife scene but that’s risky as a solo traveler. I personally did not feel safe in the city.

I have spent a month in Guatemala visiting Antigua, hiking Acetanango volcano (highlight of my trip so far, it's an amazing experience to be so close to an active volcano), Lake Atitlan - hiked Indian Nose and San Pedro volcano there, Semuc Champey, Rio Dulce, Livingston, Puerto Barrios.
