Named for the Quetzal bird--one of Guatemala's national symbols--Quetzaltenango once included the territories controlled by K'iche' Mayans, a pre-Columbian tribe eventually supplanted by Spanish conquistadores.
When in Quetzaltenango, make a side trip to see Fuentes Georginas in Zunil, approximately 52 minutes away. Spend the 10th (Sun) exploring nature at Cerro El Baul. And it doesn't end there: get impressive views of Santa Maria Volcano, make a trip to Central Plaza, explore the activities along Laguna Chicabal, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Catedral del Espiritu Santo.

For photos, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Quetzaltenango online tour planner .

In March, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
