Guatemala, the Land of Eternal Spring

Guatemala, the Land of Eternal Spring

 Atilan, Guatemala

I was born in Guatemala and every time I get to go back I am elated!  Guatemala is a beautiful country located in Central America.  It has villages and lakes beautifully flanked by volcanoes.

I always try to make time to see Lago Atilan, which Aldous Huxley declared to be the most beautiful lake in the world.  Here are a few of my most recent photos of the lake the first two taken from a boat while touring the lake in January 2014:

I have often thought of where I would like to retire and the city of Antigua, Guatemala is very high on my list.  It was originally the capital of Guatemala until a devastating earthquake in the 1700's.  The town has beautiful cobble stone streets and remarkable Spanish architecture. Walking though Antigua is like walking back in time.  It is serene, beautiful, and breath taking!
