Back to Guatemala: Central America Travel Market 2010
Last month (October) I was lucky enough to attend the Central America Travel Market or CATM 2010 in the Spanish colonial city of Antigua, Guatemala. Every year this important tourism fair is hosted by a different Central American nation. This year it was Guatemala's turn. The travel market was held on the grounds of the lovely Hotel Casa Santo Domingo, a restored 17th-century Dominican monastery, and Antigua's handsome colonial architecture and lively atmosphere provided a perfect backdrop for the numerous cultural events that were included in the program.
I hadn't been to Guatemala for several years, and it was wonderful to be back in this fascinating and colorful country. My recent visit has inspired me to put together a short slide-show of images from some of my favorite places in Guatemala. I've posted the result below.
