5 Reasons to Visit Guatemala This Year (1 of 5)

#1 - Semana Santa (Holy Week)

#HolyWeek is a wonderful time to visit #Guatemala. It is a time of great religious and cultural expression and therefore the perfect time to see the people of Guatemala in action. Beginning Ash Wednesday, processions leave from multiple churches (a partial list is available here) and follow colorful “alfombras” through the city, carrying their Christ figure.
