Guatemala

Things to do in Guatemala

Get a dose of colonial culture in Antigua and teach children how to read at schools in the nearby villages of San Andrés Itzapa and Santa María de Jesús.

A trek uphill to see steam vents and rivers of lava on Guatemala’s Pacaya Volcano is a popular tourist hike, since it’s near Guatemala City. But after a shower of volcanic rock killed a reporter this spring, Pacaya National Park closed the trail.
