They say that Guatemala is a fusion of all of Hispanic America; a melting pot of traditions, history and landscapes. The colours and warmth of Easter are just another of its surprises.
Throughout history Guatemala has been a privileged place in the Americas, due to its exceptional geographical location in the heart of the New World. There, in the jungles of Petén, Mayan culture reached its developmental peak, long before the arrival of the Spanish. The impressive sites preserved in this area are testament to that. Later, during colonial times, Guatemala served as one of the main centres of power for Hispanic America. This explains why the baroque style of its churches and palaces is so rich and grand, and why events like the Easter celebrations surpass those of other Hispanic and European Catholic countries.
The incredible geography and history are further enhanced by the exceptional weather and wildlife. Almost all varieties of Latin American landscapes can be found in a country the size of Andalusia, so small when compared to the larger countries in the Americas.
Given all of this, it is no wonder that the resulting syncretism is a surprise to travellers. What makes Guatemalan culture so spectacular? Why does this country captivate its visitors so completely? Why does everyone return from Guatemala so overjoyed? Perhaps because the beauty of Guatemala lies in its colours, character, fragrances and people.
"Unlike other places, in Guatemala the Mayan culture isn’t only reflected in the monuments and archaeology. It is also flesh and blood, it has a human face".
