Guatemala Adventure Guide 2nd Edition [Portable Document Format (PDF)]
eBook by Shelagh McNally

eBook Category: Travel
eBook Description: Color photos of all the sights and hotels, plus more detail on shopping, where to stay and eat, what to do and see than any other guide. Guatemala is a feast for explorers looking for new experiences. This guide takes you from fiery volcanoes to historic churches dating back to the 1600s. You can sail on Lake Atitlán, raft on Río Candelera, hike to Maya ruins, dive a barrier reef or take a bike tour around Antigua. In-depth details on the culture, traditions and how to travel with respect for the country and its welcoming people. With the author's expert advice, you'll find excellent eateries, locally made crafts and family-run B&Bs. All the details you need are in this guide for exploring the country in whatever style you wish--luxury, budget or in-between. Town walking tours, mountain treks, kayaking excursions, jungle trips, river cruises--all are covered, with contact info for the best tour operators. Crumbling Maya ruins sit beside grand cathedrals built by the Conquistadors. The Maya people are still here, retaining their traditions. Rainforests, lava-spitting volcanoes, hotsprings, amazing wildlife, 600 species of orchids--the author shows you how to immerse yourself in the country and experience it fully. [AVAILABLE ONLY IN ADOBE ACROBAT PDF FORMAT.]

My friend and I traveled with the Lonely Planet Guatemala book (published Jan. 2004) and with this book. They complemented each other very well. Lonely Planet has terrific practical info (bus schedules, etc.) but little info on how to climb volcanoes, go trekking, rafting, horseback riding, etc. Adventure Guide to Guatemala had what we wanted: volcano/trekking-off-the-beaten-path info. Our travel style is extremely independent (we wanted to ascend volcanoes without a guide) but the book is very appropriate as well for people who prefer to work through formal ecotour companies or guides, or people who can afford nicer ecolodges and bed-and-breakfasts. They are all listed in this book. There is extensive information on how to explore the Mayan archaeological sites.--Amazon.com reviewer
