5 Great Reasons To Honeymoon In Guatemala

  |   By Jen O'Brien

There is a spiritual and cultural richness to Guatemala that is hard to explain. There’s something about the country’s landscape – its misty mountain peaks and lush jungles – that just draws you in and captivates you from the moment you descend into Guatemala City.

While the country is bordered by popular sun destinations including Mexico and Belize, generic, all-inclusive beach vacations are not actually Guatemala's forte. On offer instead is jaw-dropping scenery that rivals the most picturesque spots in Europe and South America and the opportunity to become completely immersed in Mayan culture through outdoor endeavours, food and spiritual healing. Guatemala also lays claim to impressive ancient ruins, one of the world's most amazing handicraft markets (in Chichicastenango), and Central America's only Relais & Chateaux property, Casa Palopo.

For couples interested in a vacation spent downing daiquiris on the beach, this may not be the right fit. But for those looking to come away with something more than a few souvenirs and a sunburn, Guatemala is paradise.
