Backpacking Guatemala

Two friends backpacking in Guatemala for five days. Travelling from Guatemala City to Antigua to Lake Atitlan and stopping in Panajachel, San Pedro and San Marcos. The very joyful duo, considering the rainy conditions.

Chichicastenango by British Pathe from 1963

British Pathé for decades makes genuine and great documentaries, news footage, travelogues. As time goes by, the value of those materials is enormous. Chichi really attracted the attention of BP cameras. If you visit Chichi today, you'll see that there are changes, but the essence of the place remained as it was decades ago.

This is Guatemala - full documentary

Brent Foster channel offers this documentary about ordinary Guatemalan people in one village. We can see their lives, hear their thoughts, learn how they manage to make ends meet. 50 min, produced in 2015.

Seven facts about Guatemala

Very interesting facts about Guatemala and its native Maya peoples. Now, if you ask me, I'll make just one correction to Sebastian's nice vid: there was NO Mayan Empire. Maya lived divided into city-states, something like the ancient Greece, but without a common language (23 Mayan languages are now spoken in Guatemala only).

Ross having fun in Guatemala

From taking his vaccines to enjoying Guatemala, this short film shows you what Guate is all about through the eyes of an ordinary Gringo. In his comment under the video, Ross says: "They have ACTUAL volcanos, you guys. It's ridiculous." You bet we have. Officially, 33 of those. Inspiring and funny video.

Arjona's new single published

The Guatemalan singer and songwriter, Ricardo Arjona, presented his album and tour "Circo Soledad" (Circus loneliness).

After his successful "Viaje" tour, which had more than two million visitors, Arjona is on the tour again in the middle of this year. This series of concerts will tour Latin America, Canada and the United States, and after 8 years Arjona will return to Europe in emblematic places like London, Paris, Madrid and Barcelona.

The expected new album will be released on April 21. It will include 14 unpublished songs that were recorded in London, New York, Miami, Nashville, Guatemala, Los Angeles and Colombia. The first single from this album and official video were published today. Enjoy

Andrew eats.......a lot of things

Andrew Zimmern is a known traveler that eats bizarre foods all around the world. In this episode, he comes to Guatemala. He will eat things like brains and eyes, but in the end, he will have traditional Mayan meal that will make him cry. 

Chicken bus song

What those guys did is simply hilarious. They produced a song about chicken buses of Guate and even more - they made a video. The Chicken Bus Song - Dave Ratcliffe. Language: Spanglish. Engnish. God knows.

Some good music.......I think

Even videos with modern music use Guatemala for its scenery.

Vintage photos of Guatemala

In description of this video with old photos of Guatemala it says:

It is almost impossible to think today when we walk along the 6th Avenue, with hundreds of stalls occupying the sidewalks, and the thousands of pedestrians, cars, trucks, noise, and pollution, that more than a hundred years stillness reigned here. The grandparents and the owners of the establishments drew their rocking chairs on the sidewalk to discuss and comment the news from Europe, then it was convulsed by the First World War - interrupted here only by the passing of another slow carriage, or by a water carrier with barrels filled with water, selling the vital liquid ahh those times!
