5 Reasons to Visit Guatemala This Year (5 of 5)


#5 – Beaches

Whether you want white sandy beaches or black, Guatemala has what you’re looking for. On the Pacific side, most of Guatemala’s beautiful beaches aren’t surrounded by high-rise luxury resorts and crowded with tourists; instead you’ll find cozy villages, great weather, and peace and quiet. Swimming conditions can be tricky though, so inquire locally about the right time to swim. While you’re at it, you can find friendly locals to take you fishing and surfing. If you prefer larger crowds, you can visit the more touristy spots on Guatemala’s narrow Caribbean strip. Either way, we’re sure you’ll have a great time on Guatemala’s beaches.
