What are people saying about the book?

“The book included helpful cultural information, and I could definitely relate to some of the Peace Corps stories from a previous visit to Guatemala.” – Paige, Amazon.com reviewer

“Excellent information about Guatemala, the authors put a lot of effort into compiling information for the entire country. Ideal for tourists on a budget.” – Elizabeth Bell, Amazon.com reviewer

“This is a great guide for those looking to see Guatemala beyond the beaten path. Thoughtful and insightful.” -Heather Graham, Amazon.com reviewer

“[The guide] is particularly helpful in leading travelers off the beaten path—but not too far. As for destinations “on the beaten path,” (like Antigua, Lake Atitlan, Tikal), there is helpful advice to get the most out of these stops.” – Benjamin Compaine, Amazon.com reviewer
