Why Guatemala?... Guatemala is an amazing place, and has a little bit of everything. It's beautiful, the people are friendly and there's so much to see and do. “Guatemala has more Maya ruins than its other neighboring countries and more places for ecotourism than Costa Rica. Guatemala’s privileged geographic position, political stability, natural and cultural richness and its climate of -Eternal Spring- are competitive advantages that make the country an attractive travel destination. Unlike the other Central American countries, Guatemala provides a comprehensive supply and has a large variety of high quality tourism segments, such as: archeology, colonial history and legacy, indigenous culture and communities, volcanoes, fishing, ecotourism and adventure, beaches on the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts”.* It´s important to know that many couples prefer to stay somewhat close to home, to reduce airfare costs for their guest; this is perhaps why Guatemala is one of the most convenient locations for weddings.
With everything it has to offer, Guatemala is the ideal location for destination weddings.

If you want to get married in Guatemala, hire a wedding coordinator or planner from the destination. She will be knowledgeable about the local vendors, marriage procedures and destination facts that can simplify the planning process. You have to choose someone who is easily accessible, with internet access, so you don’t have to call her long-distance all the time. A weeding coordinator can personalize your wedding and incorporate local traditions or customs, which can make destination weddings more memorable.
