Guatemala 3 Count: San Lucas Might Surprise You
Guatemala 3 Count, where we bring you 3 stories that you shouldn’t miss.
First up: San Lucas, Guatemala is booming, despite being one of the smallest municipalities in the nation. With a record number of housing developments fueled by its ideal weather conditions, abundant water, and situated on the Inter-American highway it has quickly grown into an attractive location not to just live, but also start a business.
Next up: Guatemala City is a chaotic home to 3.2 million people, and with a high crime rate, this is not a place that lures tourists. Instead head outside the city and go for the mountain highland town of Chichicastenango and the Mayan ruins of Tikal, the country’s best-known former Maya city.
