Here you will have an opportunity to read about stuff that we consider "the best of Guatemala". Food and drinks, services and products, even places will be depicted here. Guatemala is mostly an agricultural country with beautiful and diverse nature. There are many things you didn't know about it, and our mission here is to change it. If GEX is a front page of Guatemala, then consider this section as Guatemala's store window.
