ABSTRACT
The article features the exotic Guatemalan Highlands which harbors the most extensive native cultures and the descendant from the original Maya people. It notes that these spectacular scenic lands make you set back in time among the villagers of the remote Indian reservations to observe ways of life that are hardly changed over the centuries. It explores on the areas encompassed by the highlands, along with its tribal groups and art trades including the traditional villages of Antigua, Lake Atitlán, and the Cuchumatanes. It adds that the Maya people are generally warm and charming but are sensitive in matters of religion and customs.
