Travellers can trek the relatively 'untrodden' nation
Travellers looking to take hiking holidays should try planning a trip to the "still-untrodden" Central American country of Guatemala, according to the New York Times.
Mark Sundeen wrote about the experience of returning to Guatemala, having visited as a younger man.
The writer said that in many areas of the country - even in the more built up areas - there are views that are difficult to find elsewhere in the world.
"We walked into the village around dusk, but with the fog pouring down the dirt streets, it could have been anytime," he said.
"These days, outdoor adventure is booming: mountain biking tours, sea kayaking and treks across the highlands, like the one that landed us in [a] tiny fog-laden village."
Some other activities that people can take part in when in Guatemala on an adventure holiday include trekking around ancient temples left over from the country's Mayan past.
