Welcome to La Nueva Guatemala de la Asunción, the official name of Guatemala City. You'll learn more than just alternate names on this guided walking tour of one of the most modern cities in Central America!
The Guatemalan capital is a city of contrasts, where modern buildings tower over squats, and buses chug along next to sports cars. Get to grips with the cultural, religious, and business center of the country on this guided tour.
Take some photos of the Constitution Plaza, the beating heart of the historic city center. See the looming Metropolitan Cathedral with its impressive baroque/neo-classical designs and earthquake-proof blue dome. Walk through the Centenarian Park, where locals love to roller skate, climb rock walls and speed down ziplines.
Get yourself some snacks and souvenirs from Central Market in the basement of the Tabernacle Plaza. Ceramics, textiles, leather, wood, and silver all make nicer gifts than fridge magnets, but you can buy some of those, too.
Don't leave the country without experiencing this growing modern city - it won't be long before it's well and truly on the tourist trail, but right now it's still something pretty special.
