Guatemala...The Land of Eternal Spring



The World of the Maya, one of the most important civilizations of Latin America, flourished in Guatemala. The arrival of the Spanish brought new ways to Guatemala. Mixed and merged with those of the Indian descendants of the Maya and verbally handed down from father to son over generations, they have formed the idiosyncrasies which are such a charming facet of todays Guatemala. So strong is the legendary spirit in Guatemala that its writers and poets made it world reknowned.
