Guatemala is a cross roads country, it sits between four different countries — two in the north, two in the south. To traverse Central America you must go to Guatemala. But once you are there you have a choice of direction:

Mexico or Belize if traveling north, Honduras or El Salvador if going south.

It is easy to travel through Guatemala, it is truly an overland travel hub: it is a place to look around, claim your bearings, and feel out your next move. The transportation is good, efficient, fast, and cheap. In a moment you can decide to go to Mexico, Belize, El Salvador, or Honduras, and be there within a day of bus travel.

Guatemala has the energy of a traveler’s hub, it has the of choice of direction: two countries to the north, two to the south.

Where will you go?

Or perhaps you will just stay here – take a seat at the crossroads – and enjoy the volcanoes, jungles, mountains, lakes, and people in the heart of Central America.
