The roads on the Los Cuchumatanes, Huehuetenango, Guatemala can at times be above the clouds. This photo was taken near Páquix, Huehuetenango.

Even though Guatemala is located in the tropics, most of people actually live on the highlands, Altiplano as we call the high lands here, thus enjoy of temperate weather most of the time, except in places so high up like in Los Cuchumatanes, where you can expect very cold and freezing temperature.

Have you visited Los Cuchumatanes in any of your trips? If the answer is no, why now pay a visit this wonderfully remote part of the Guatemalan landscape.

Sea of Clouds over the Highlands of Guatemala by Rudy Giron

The view above is one that you might encounter when you flight into Guatemala during the rainy season when the country is mostly cover by huge cloud formations. The photo above, however, was taken during the dry season, in a very unusual cloudy day. I like how the clouds seem to be like the sea near a beach.

Have you encountered a sight similar when flying into Guatemala?
