Western Highlands

The changes in altitude across the Western Highlands make it a region of great biological and cultural diversity, with isolated communities able to keep their traditions intact into the 21st century, and a variety of ecosystems similarly prospering independent of outward influence. Holidays in Western Highlands take in the whole variety of the volcanoes, mountains, valleys, and rainforests, and the indigenous Maya market towns situated on the tiers and plateaus of the changing terrain. Colonial towns across the highlands showcase whitewashed buildings and pleasant town squares, backed by the the dramatic landscape tapering off into the clouds. Make your own Western Highlands vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Guatemala online trip itinerary maker .
