It's no surprise that Guatemala has some stunning natural scenery, with only 2% of its landmass being urbanized. The Peten region has many national parks and the Rio Dulce's lush canyons make for a memorable boat ride. For centuries, the natural beauty of Lago de Atitlan, a volcano-ringed area, has attracted travelers. Semuc Champey is the swimming hole that inspired a thousand postcards. You can also dip your toes into the Pacific Ocean or the Caribbean Sea. There are trekking routes through the jungles up to volcanoes, world class white-water rafting and miles of caves to explore.
