Best time to be there
Known as the country of eternal spring, Guatemala is good to visit all year round but the dry season is November to May. The climate also varies according to altitude. The low-lying jungle areas such as El Peten are generally hot and sticky, in contrast to the highlands which are pleasantly warm during the day but can be very cool at night.

MORE INFORMATION ON GUATEMALA
Guatemala maybe small but the memories it inspires, like its dazzling range of attractions, are immense. Returning guests describe a candlelit supper among the haunting ruins of Yaxta temple - a unique A&K treat - as a 'once in a lifetime experience'.
A shamanic ceremony was equally atmospheric. Our guide knew the exact village house where the deity Maximon took ritualistic centre stage. His effigy was draped in scarves and broad brimmed hats, and a cigar placed between his lips, removed occasionally to pour spirits into his mouth. 'I new I was witnessing something very special,' wrote our client.
