This is the welcoming vista you get when you arrive to Guatemala City, the largest and most modern city in Central America, coming from El Salvador. You have to stop at el mirador (viewpoint) on Carretera a El Salvador to enjoy the sunset and the volcano skyline, including the smoking Volcán de Fuego. Here’s a closer look at the volcanoes Agua (Water), Fuego (Fire) and Acatenango. From this perspective is easy to fall in love with the veiled beauty of Guatemala City.
