Guatemala: A Mayan Paradise

Brought to you by Abogados Laborales

Every time you hear someone say something about the Mayan culture you think about Mexico, right? The Mayan pyramids and the majesty of the jungle, the humble people and their great food. What if I told you that there’s another country with strong Mayan culture, which is not known by tourists and has beautiful landscapes to offer, don’t know what country we’re talking about? It’s Guatemala.

The small country below Mexico. Guatemala has a huge variety of places to explore. Some of the kind of landscapes you can find in Guatemala are:

Beach

Guatemala Has beautiful beaches of the Caribbean Sea, which makes it a great option for sunbathing and swimming.

 

Jungle

Guatemala’s jungle is the most protected jungle of America, Mayan lived there so you will also find the city of Tikal, one of the most powerful Mayan cities that were abandoned.

 

Forest

The forests are also protected so you can admire the beauty of nature It’s quite humid reaching 15°C in some places where you can go for camping, and you can walk into hanging bridges!

Mountain: The whole country is full of mountains, the largest solid elevation in Central America is the mountain range Santa Cruz that reaches 3800m above sea level.

Guatemala City is the capital of the country, it is also the most populous in Central America, it has a population of 13 million, even though Spanish is the official language, there are more than twenty Mayan languages.

In the city, you can go to restaurants and eat burritos or tamales and other local dishes. If exploring is your passion it has many interesting sites to know, such as The Aurora Zoo. Paseo Cayala. National Palace. Fontabella Square. Ixchel Museum of the Indian Costume. Wonderful place to learn about the Indian culture and the colonial Guatemala, which brings to you a magic trip to the past.

 

Coron Palawan: A Perfect Place For Vacation

Coron Palawan is located in the Philippines. Coron Island just has few population and most of them are the called natives of coron the Tagbanua tribe. The Tagbanua tribe is also the one who is taking care of its island. The Tagbanua tribe is making sure that they can still preserve the beauty of their island.Once you’ve visited the Philippines it’s a must that you have to visit a place like coron. This place is a quiet peaceful place. The locals of coron said, “coron is the most expensive travel in the Philippines.” There are two ways travelling to coron one is by a plane that takes 45mins. From Manila and the other one is by boat that takes 8hours also from Manila. I can agree with that because the airfare going to coron is about 100USD back and forth.

Swimming in Coron

They are also known for deep sea diving Japanese World War II underwater shipwrecks surrounded with magnificent coral reefs making it as one of the best dive spots in the world. When I saw coron it’s all worth a pause to enjoy the crystal clear water is the best for snorkelling, diving and swimming. The water in Kayangan Lake in coron is one of the favorite of the tourist because of its crystal clear water and it’s also known for one of the clearest water in asia. Aside from swimming, snorkelling, diving there are much more things to do in coron they also have a Hot Spring, that is privately owned with an entrance of 200pesos it’s a beautiful place especially at night you.

 

Hiking  

The Mt. Tapyas is known for its 700+ stepping stairs to the top, the long hike is worth it for the breathtaking view of the sunset and also you can see the top view of whole coron island, I do recommend hiking there at 5:30 am or 4 pm because going there will be more difficult if the sun is at its fullest. There is also one more place to hike in coron, which is Mt. Darala
