Mayan city is a place you have to visit once in life!

National transportation is not that good

Itinerary Overview

I decided to take some long vacations to start traveling the most beautiful places in my country "Guatemala" and 3 of them were the winners for this trip so I'm gonna talk about Panajachel which is a little town located in Solola, it has one of the biggest and cleanest lakes in the country and it's a perfect place to relax in a boat with friends and music.

I also visited Peten, which is the department where the Mayan city is located, and I felt that I was able to connect my soul with nature since it is a very peaceful place. big pyramids and a lot of history was waiting for me to be discovered.

and I finished my trip in Antigua Guatemala because that's the most touristic city in Guatemala and also because it is very close to my parents' house so it was easier for me to take a rest.
