Beautiful country and wonderful, people. The cultural legacy of this country is amazing compared to other Central American countries where most of the indigenous population was wiped out. Absolutely fascinating place and I would recommend a trip there to anyone who is interested in other cultures and places

Guatemala is actually quite beautiful depending on your definition I guess. The landscape is gorgeous and the people are wonderful and friendly. San Pedro is great, a little touristy but still really nice place to relax.
