  • Guatemala Travel Video Guide

    Guatemala Travel Video Guide - Guatemala has a rich and distinctive culture from the long mix of elements from Spain and the native Maya people. This diverse history and the natural beauty of the land have created a destination rich in interesting and scenic sites. Spanning a mountainous slice of Central America immediately south of Mexico, Guatemala is loaded with incredible natural, historical and cultural appeal. As the birthplace and heartland of the ancient Maya, the country is in many ways defined by the legacy of this early civilization. Their rainforest cities were abandoned centuries ago, but Maya people continue to thrive in the Guatemalan highlands, where traditions and religious rituals, mingled with Catholic practices, endure to form the richest and most distinctive indigeno...

A short video about the country of Guatemala and its culture, food, holidays, and more. English Transcript: Guatemala is a country in Central America that is home to a diverse landscape, delicious food, and a multitude of cultural traditions. Geography: Guatemala is 275 miles from North to South by 250 miles East to West. Within these 40,000 square miles, the land shifts from mountainous regions, to jungles, to volcanoes. In Guatemala City, the capital of Guatemala, the temperature typically fluctuates between 62 and 73 degrees, earning it the name “Land of Eternal Spring.” Economy: Guatemala’s economy is mostly agricultural, with its main exports being coffee, sugar, cardamom, bananas, and cotton. Agricultural exports contribute to about 75 percent of Guatemala’s export earnings. Demographics: Guatemala’s population is about 16.95 million people as of May 4, 2017. The population is approximately 47% latino, 47% indigena, 5% garifuna and 1% other. Spanish is the main language, among many others, and Mayan Spirituality, Catholicism, and Evangelical Christianity are the main religions. Food: Common foods in Guatemala include tortillas and tamales, black beans and rice, and wheat in the form of pasta and bread. Guatemalan food is traditionally made in the home, and going to restaurants to eat is not very common. Holidays: The Guatemalan calendar is determined by the Roman Catholic Church. Because of this, their most important holidays include Christmas, Advent, Easter, and Three Kings Day. Other holidays include the Day of the Dead, which celebrates family members who have passed away, Revolution Day, which remembers the day Jorge Ubico was overthrown in 1944, and New Year’s Day, which they celebrate by wearing a new outfit. Hobbies: In Guatemala, there are many things you can do fill your free time. You can enjoy sports, weave clothing and fabric, and dance. Most Guatemalans hand weave textiles, either to sell or making into clothing. Popular recreational activities include soccer, white-water rafting, spelunking, rock climbing, and kayaking. Popular dances include Cumbia and Punta. Current Events: Today, Guatemala has recently endured some political troubles. In 2015, their President, Otto Pérez Molina was discovered to be heading a corruption ring. Their former vice president who had resigned not long before was arrested and over 14 cabinet members resigned. After its recent problems, Guatemala is back on its feet.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Quetzal is the currency of Guatemala and also the national bird, it is a fragile and rare animal. The bird´s tail feather was used as a form of currency back in the Maya Empire. 2. Atitlán means ‘at the water’ in Aztec language and is a lake in the nothern Guatemala highlands. It is the deepest lake in Central America and is considered as “the most beautiful lake in the world” by several explorers like Aldous Huxley. Atitlán is also surrounded by 3 conical volcanoes, making it a must to visit place. 3. Chichi or Chichicastenango is the no.1 shopping destination of whole Guatemala, it is located between 2 and 3 hours southwest of Guatemala City. Chichicastenango (also called Chichi) is considered to be home to the brightest probably most vibrant native market in Central America. You can find there a lot of things like local fabrics, clothing, pottery, wood crafted items or even fireworks, there is something for everyone. This City also hosts many festivals. 4. On May 30, 2010, an enormous hole, 60 feet wide and 30 stories deep, opened up in the middle of Guatemala City, swallowing a three-story building and a home. It also caused the death of a man. The reason for the formation of the sinkhole is thought to be the weak material the city is built on – volcano pumice. This was only 3 years after another sinkhole formed in Guatemala City, in 2007. 5. Much of Guatemala’s history has been marked by violence. For 36 years, the country was embattled in a civil war that took the lives of more than 200,000 people. The war brought about mass murders and resulted in millions of people being run off of their land. Guatemala’s civil war ended in December 1996, but the war scars still remain. Violence and intimidation are major problems in private life and in politics too. 6. 21 varieties of Mayan languages are spoken in Guatemala by mainly the rural population. Indigenous languages of Guatemala include Xinca and Garifuna, spoken by populations restricted to the coast. It is usual for native language speakers to have knowledge of either Spanish or other national languages beside their mother tongue. Efforts to preserve ancient Mayan literature and scripts are undertaken to know more about the history of the country. 7. The first chocolate bar was discovered during the Mayan civilization in Guatemala (Thank Mayan gods for that!). Mayans used to worship the cacao tree as they believed it to be sacred. The aphrodisiac properties of cocoa were well known and it was often consumed in the form of a drink. The Mayans used to pray to a deity called Ek Chuah, who symbolized the cacao tree. However, chocolate was usually consumed in its bitter form with the occasional use of chilli. Chocolate is widely consumed in Guatemala even today with a chocolate museum in the city of Antigua. And cocoa is still sacred in Guatemala with cocoa shops, confectioneries and breweries present in almost all the developed cities.

Here it is! I'm so thrilled to release this Guatemala Travel Guide, and share Albion Fit's top places (& secrets) to visit! This trip was not only an adventure, but so incredibly inspiring. To be there alongside the owners of Albion Fit (who are an absolute HOOT), and see where so much of their inspiration comes from was seriously so cool. I'm convinced that Guatemala is one of the worlds best kept secrets with it's endless beauty, and welcoming culture. We had the pleasure of meeting the talented Albion Fit team, who make the visions become a reality, and to be honest, it was one of my highlights of the trip! To see the process and hard work that goes into each swimsuit and piece of apparel we had been wearing, was mind blowing. Everything was cut and sewn with such precision and care. If you're in the mood for an inspiring entrepreneur story, you gotta listen to theirs -- you will be blown away! Other than that, my favorite places were the waterfall hot spring (Finea El Paraiso) because it was beautiful and had HOT WATER streaming down the falls! Like, is this real life!? AND the adventure hike we did at 4am to the Tikal Mayan Ruins. Can you believe the sound of those howler monkeys!? They sound like dinosaurs of some sort. It was seriously such a thrill, and so beautiful when the sun came up. No wonder they shot Star Wars there (By the way, have you seen the new one? Call me a geek, but I lovedddd it.). Another one of my highlights was being there with my sister and brother-in-law, they motivated me to get out and exercise and it was actually super fun. We were running through little groups of school kids and trying to not get hit by busses in Antigua! Ha! Working out is something I rarely do on vacation, and I'm making it a must from now on.

Guatemala Travel Video Guide - Guatemala has a rich and distinctive culture from the long mix of elements from Spain and the native Maya people. This diverse history and the natural beauty of the land have created a destination rich in interesting and scenic sites. Spanning a mountainous slice of Central America immediately south of Mexico, Guatemala is loaded with incredible natural, historical and cultural appeal. As the birthplace and heartland of the ancient Maya, the country is in many ways defined by the legacy of this early civilization. Their rainforest cities were abandoned centuries ago, but Maya people continue to thrive in the Guatemalan highlands, where traditions and religious rituals, mingled with Catholic practices, endure to form the richest and most distinctive indigenous identity in the hemisphere. Guatemala today is very much a synthesis of Maya and colonial traditions, fused with the omnipresent influences of twenty-first century Latin and North American culture. Baroque churches dating back to the Spanish Conquest coexist with pagan temples that have been sites of worship for millennia. Highland street markets prosper alongside vast glitzy shopping malls, and pre-Columbian festival dances are performed by teenage hip-hop fans. All this in your Guatemala Travel Video Guide! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZr2V_KRxOU

My father was a traveler and spoke 7 languages fluently. I remember being fascinated by the maps, pictures, and relics he brought home with him.

Today, when I visit another country my favorite place to be is in someone’s house taking in the feeling of their lives and culture, and eating their food! This course allows one to learn about world history by discussing the history and culture of individual countries. The countries selected for this series are ones that I have traveled to or are the homeland of a person with whom I am acquainted with, or both. Some of the topics that are discussed to help learn about culture are: i. Art ii. Music iii. Dance iv. Politics/government v. Language vi. Money vii. Food b. Each lesson involves a brief history of the country and a printout that invites the learner to consider lessons that can be learned from that country’s history. Most of the lessons involve a recipe to make a meal common to that area. (because food says a lot about a culture and is really fun to make!)
