Your wish list for Guatemala
Posted by: HoboSylvain | 2014-04-26 19:19:42 | Rio Dulce, Izabal, Guatemala
Keywords: planning
I've been in Guatemela for two weeks now... I'm getting used to the country, which is somewhat different than Mexico. Even though I'm not fluent in Spanish yet, I did notice a few differences in the terms used. In Mexico they say 'estacionamiento' for 'parking' while here they use 'parqueo'. The banana known in Mexico as 'platano' is referred to as 'banano' here. But the major difference is in the richness of the country. Mexico is a rich country within Latin America while Guatemala is much closer to the bottom of the scale.

Mexico's main features are mostly historical. Yes, it has great nature spots but Mexico has to be experienced more than viewed. Guatemala is the opposite... it's mostly a country to see for its natural side, it's almost all located in a tropical forest after all.

I plan to see and do a variety of things in Guatemala, things that are not usual for tourists to do (although I'm not that adventurous or off the beaten path). I've already explored a banana plantation as I just published. I plan to visit another plantation while I'll be in Antigua... one that produces macadamia nuts... my favourite nut! I want to hike to the top of an active volcano. I want to take some Spanish classes to improve my Spanish. Finally, I want to take tons of wonderful pictures.

But I'm also curious as to what YOU would do if you were to visit Guatemala? What would be on your wish list for this country? Perhaps I could try something you'd like to do while I'm here and write an article about it... making you kinda live it without any expense. I'm currently planning to be in Guatemala for about 6 more weeks, but that's flexible. You can see my next stops on this map.

Please hit me with any and all suggestions you have. Of course, if you have friends or family in the country, it would always be a pleasure to meet with them and get to know more about the daily life of the people.
