Welcome to Guatemala

Welcome to Guatemala by Rudy Girón

The first welcome you get as you fly into Guatemala is from our volcanoes. We have 37 of volcanoes, four of them are active, but if you´re flying into Guatemala City you’re most likely to be greeted by either Volcán de Agua, Volcán Pacaya (active), Volcán de Fuego (active) and Volcán Acatenango. In the picture above Pacaya volcano is missing. Anyway, welcome to our beautiful, mountainous and volcanic country.

Guatemalans Love Fast Food

In the hectic life of capitalinos (Guatemala City residents) there is no time to eat healthy; fast food chain “Pollo Campero” is everywhere, they offer fried chicken, among other things. Once a year does not hurt or maybe it does.
