Guatemala is a country in Central America bordered by Mexico to the north and west the pacific ocean to the southwest,  Belize to the northeast, the Caribbean to the east, Honduras to the east and El Salvador to southeast.

Guatemala was the home of the Mayas in XVI, and the last Maya community was destroyed in 1697. Guatemala has a lot of history to share, but I’m going to share some wonderful places to visit.

I spent 17 years in this wonderful country. When I was in Guatemala, I never imagined how much I would miss my country. Three years ago, I came to the United States, and I felt excited because I would know a new country. However, a few days after I started to miss my family, Guatemalan food and my culture. Came to the United Stated helped me because I realized how much I love my country.
