Spring is taking a really long time to get here. When are we going to get to wear t-shirts again? If you have a travel itch to scratch, then you'll love this flight deal. You'll be on your way to t-shirt weather in no time. For less than $300, you can get a roundtrip ticket from Toronto to Guatemala!
There are so many opportunities to learn about Mayan civilization and see ancient ruins and archaeological sites in Guatemala. Imagine trekking through the jungle to see these awe-inspiring temples! Guatemala's rich cultural history makes a trip here fascinating. You have to see the colonial city of Antigua Guatemala which is so well-preserved that you'll think you've actually stepped back in time.
If you're concerned about safety, then check out the Government of Canada's recommendations for travelling to Guatemala. It's typically one of the most unstable places in Central America due to high crime and violence. As long as you're taking appropriate safety precautions then you're more likely to have an incident-free trip.
Some safe travel tips include arriving and travelling during daylight hours, staying with your group or travel partners and being aware of pickpockets and flaunting wealth like expensive phones and watches. You don't need a special visa to enter, but you'll get a tourist card that's good for staying up to 90 days in Guatemala.
