From the Cult of Maximon to the delicate issue of transport manners, this guide should provide even the most adventurous and imaginative travellers information and travel options to this volatile corner of the globe. The guide features information on all of Guatemala's attractions including the Mayan world, jungle cities, natural landscapes, feasts and fiestas, details on the best Spanish language schools and volunteer organizations, adventure sports from diving in Lake Atitlan to volcano climbing and white water rafting, plus where to go for shopping and cultural artefacts - indigenous waving, textiles and clothes.
About the Author
Claire has had an attachment to all things Latin ever since she backpacked around South America five years ago. Being bitten by a piranha in Bolivia and undergoing a brain scan following a sand boarding accident in Peru did not dissuade her from further adventures. She worked as a researcher with animals in the Peruvian jungle, but a close shave with a tropical disease reluctantly sent her back to the UK. Unable to resist the attractions of the continent, she returned to work for FootPrint as a contributor in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Cuba, attempting to learn salsa along the way. A former journalist, Claire lived in Guatemala sticking her nose into the life and times of this Central American nation.
