Guatemala is a destination where your money can go the distance without sacrificing your overall experience. With Mayan ruins, volcanoes, beaches, and rainforest, there's more than enough to see and do. Venture to Lake Atitlan and hike the volcano at sunrise, join a free walking tour in the city of Antigua, admire the Tikal ancient ruins, and browse local markets. Local restaurants called comedores will have you eating inexpensively, and lodging options range in price but are generally very doable, especially if choosing a hostel or homestay. Taking the bus is also the cheapest way to get around.
