Jean-François, your local contact in Guatemala
Hello everybody, I'm Jean-François ! I fell in love with Central America a long time ago and I finally settled in Guatemala, that I had cycled across, in 1998 and founded my travel agency Mayan Zone.
I wish to share my passion for this beautiful country and offer a unique and customized experience to my travelers who become my friends, most of time. My team and I will help you to organize the trip that suits you the best.
Come and discover the Ixil community, the Altiplano and the Lake Atitlan, Antigua and the Holy Week processions. No doubt that you'll be amazed by the local people's kindness and optimism.
Let's go to Guatemala !
Guatemala, or the Land of the Eternal Spring, remains far from mass tourism. It's a small country with a large variety of landscapes and cultures. Most of all, it's the country of authenticity and kindness. No to touristic Maya villages, yes to real encounters with the locals who are always smiling and welcoming. Also, the Maya heritage is everywhere !
There is no doubt that Guatemala is the most beautiful country in Central America. The best time of the year to visit Guatemala is from October to April but the weather remains nice all your round.
There are so many things to see, it's really hard to make a choice but I would mention Tikal, Copan (Honduras), Antigua, the Lake Atitlan and Todos Santos.
