Guatemala City ©
The largest city in Central America and the country's capital, Guatemala City contains historic sights and modern businesses.
Explore Guatemala City's surroundings by going to Antigua (Iglesia de La Merced, Cerro de la Cruz, &more). There's lots more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at La Aurora Zoo, buy something for everyone on your list at Mall Naranjo, ponder the world of politics at Edificio de Correos Central, and contemplate the long history of Palacio Nacional.
