Guatemala is a country located in Central America, bordered by Mexico to the north and west, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, Belize to the northeast, the Caribbean to the east, and Honduras and El Salvador to the southeast.

Guatemala is a land of great cultural and biological diversity, and a great place to visit for its many attractions and activities. Visitors can explore the country's rainforests, mountains, and volcanoes, go birdwatching or whitewater rafting, or visit one of the many Maya archaeological sites. The country is home to 23 Maya archaeological sites, including Tikal National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Guatemala is also home to the world's second-largest coral reef, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef.

Guatemala's cuisine is also a major draw, with dishes such as pepián, a stew made with chicken, pork, or beef, and tamales, a type of cornmeal cake.
