With more than 15 million residents, Guatemala is the most populous country in Central America. It is bordered to the north by Mexico, and to the east by Belize, El Salvador, and Honduras. In Guatemala the ruins of ancient Mayan temples rise above jungle vegetation, and churches and forts from the Spanish colonial period stand next to modern architecture in cities like Guatemala City, Mixco, and Villa Nueva. From 1960 until 1996, Guatemala was torn by a civil war between government forces and rebel groups. The war resulted in approximately 200,000 deaths. Since a peace agreement was signed, Guatemalans have gained greater political and civil rights. The economy of Guatemala has also grown. However, the country still faces many challenges. There’s a lot to discover about Guatemala!
