To the south of Mexico, in the very heart of Central America, sits the country of Guatemala. It is a land of cultural contrasts, and it offers something for everyone. Once you have booked one of our cheap flights to Guatemala, you will be able to experience history firsthand. The old Mayan ruins at El Mirador and Tikal are both open to tourists. The village of Flores is often a jumping-off point for more in-depth tours of the wild regions to the north. Flores itself is situated on Lake Peten Itza, a charming body of water that offers plenty of recreational opportunities. For shopping, you will want to visit the Chichicastenango Market. On certain days of the week, citizens from around the nation bring in their hand-crafted textiles, which are wonderfully put together and extremely colorful. Our cheap flights to Guatemala will allow you to wander through the textile markets in the morning before heading off into the Guatemalan jungle for a guided afternoon tour.
A flight to Guatemala will also bring you to beautiful mountains and sandy beaches. The Pacaya Volcano rises sharply above the surrounding mountains, and tourists often make it a point to climb to the top. Lake Atitlan, the aquatic jewel of the nation, sits nearby. If you are a less intrepid traveler, you might head to the beaches at Monterrico. A cheap flight to Guatemala will also allow you to explore the Maya Biosphere Reserve, which is an area of pristine wilderness that is home to various species of tropical cats, monkeys, tapirs, turtles, and parrots. Guatemala City, the sprawling capital, is home to the Metropolitan Cathedral, the National Palace of Culture, and a number of other fine examples of old Spanish architecture. Guatemala flights, when booked early, will whisk you away to La Aurora International Airport for an elegant vacation in this wonderful country.
