The Mayas and the Aztecs were the first to appreciate the fruits of the cacao-tree. They prepared them in the form of a stimulating and bitter drink, which they held to their Gods. Then the Spanish explorers brought the cocoa bean to Europe, where it initially became a great success as a hot drink. The country of the feathered serpent “Quetzalcoatl” invites you to discover its true richness. Yaxha and Tikal, Mayan kindom cities. The sumptuous, colonial Antigua, a Unesco World Heritage site and Lake Atitlan, with its colourful markets and villages. A whole world of unexpected surprises are waiting for you in Guatemala.
