You may be familiar with the rice terraces of Banaue. But did you know that there also terraced pools?

One can find it in Guatemala, specifically at Semuc Champey. They form part of a limestone bridge that flows over the Cahabon River.

But that’s not the only thing to see in Guatemala.

National Geographic Travel takes you to this country’s must-see places.

Tikal gives you a glimpse of Guatemala’s history. It was a large Maya City abandoned in the 10th century AD.

You shouldn’t miss Lake Atitlan. Volcanoes surrounding the lake gives you a stunning 360-degree view.

Have a feel of the bustling life in Guatemala City. It’s the most populous city in Central America.

You can also visit Antigua, Guatemala’s former capital. Trace back Guatemala’s history here even if it has been destroyed twice by natural disasters.

To cap your visit, have a selfie with Volcan Tajumulco as your background. The volcano stands at more than 13,000 feet and is the highest point in all of Central America.

Guatemala is an unforgettable country of stunning natural beauty and rich cultural sites.
