The Amazing Healthy Food!
Guatemala has a great culinary history, dating back to the rise of chocolate in Mayan times to the current push into sustainable, fresh, organic crops. If you are a foodie, and especially if you are a foodie that is into getting your hands dirty, Guatemala offers a wide variety of things to sample. Some of the best rum in the world is found here, coffee comes straight from the Finca (farm in Spanish!), hand-made chocolates are the "bean to the bar,” and a wonderful collection of organic produce, superfoods, and some fantastic fruits and vegetables we're pretty sure you probably haven't seen or tasted before are all here in Guatemala. And restaurants??? In Antigua, as well as in Guatemala City, you will find an astounding selection of restaurants and bars. Guatemala is a gastronomic paradise with 100's of choices such as small, authentic eateries to five-star upscale restaurants, including steak houses, French/Italian/Chinese/Thai cuisine, and even Texas BBQ!
