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.

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.
