    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...

They are the descendants of West African slaves shipwrecked on St Vincent, who interbred with the local Carib and Arawak people. When the British took over St Vincent from the French, they exiled the Garifuna. The Garifuna now populate the Belize, Guatemalan and Honduras Caribbean Coast. I speak with Diana about Guifitti, a medicinal alcoholic tonic made up of sixteen different herbal roots. It is believed to be a 'cure all'.

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.

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.

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!)
