Guatemala – A 2019 Travel Destination by Travel & Leisure!

 Travel and Leisure Selects Guatemala a Top 2019 Travel Destination

Guatemala

Guatemala is Central America distilled: its mix of mountain and jungle landscapes, haunting Mayan ruins and vibrant Indian culture has been luring English-speaking travelers since the writer Aldous Huxley was hypnotized back in the 1930s. Its modest travel industry was put on hold after the eruption of the aptly named Fuego volcano last June, but today, the Land of Eternal Spring is bouncing back. Perched on the rim of the jewel-like Lake Atitlán, Guatemala’s finest boutique hotel, Casa Polopó, has expanded its rustic-chic rooms, which are decorated with indigenous and colonial artifacts, from nine to 15, and signed on Guatemala’s top celebrity chef and TV star to oversee its menu specializing in indigenous cuisine. 2019 will also see the opening of two glamorous new properties in alluring settings. In Antigua, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Spanish-era capital, you’ll be able to sleep like a conquistador in the 11-room Las Cruces, a former mansion decorated with 17th-century silver relics. And in the tropical forests by the Rio Dulce, the seven-room Los Rios Boutique Hotel will revive a beautifully situated lodge from the 1960s; only accessible by boat, it’s a sumptuous base for exploring one of the region’s most isolated nature reserves. —Tony Perrottet
