Guatemala is one of the five countries comprising the Mayan world. Its territory embraces almost 500 thousand square kilometers where the Mayan people erected one of the world's oldest civilizations some 2,000 years ago. Archeological dregs of that millenary culture still remain in place, as well as a great deal of indigenous communities. This combination stands for Guatemala's major tourist attraction. The national territory consists of a jungle zone teeming with different ecosystems, volcanoes, rivers, caves and forests. Alongside the archeological and natural treasures, there are cities and villages built by the Spaniards during the colonial rule. Gourmet, arts and festivities born out of half-breeding are also commonplace. A visit to Tikal is like opening a door to the former Mayan civilization's mysterious world. This ancient city was built in 600 B. C., and currently comprises a national park declared Mankind's Heritage by UNESCO.
