National Geographic cataloga a Guatemala como uno de los 25 destinos más fascinantes para viajar

El equipo editorial de las 17 ediciones internacionales de Traveler de Nat Geo seleccionaron a Guatemala como uno de los mejores destinos para viajar en el 2020.

National Geographic (Nat Geo) dio a conocer una lista con los 25 países que tienen los lugares más fascinantes para viajar en el 2020. Lo que ha llamado la atención es que Guatemala es uno de ellos, resaltando cuatro de los lugares turísticos más emblemáticos del país.

En el sitio oficial de Nat Geo se compartió un artículo denominado “Los mejores viajes para hacer en 2020”, en donde Guatemala tiene la posición cuatro de 25 países y se explica el por qué es seleccionado para viajar.

“Si alguien se pregunta dónde pervive la legendaria cultura maya solo tiene que mirar hacia Guatemala. En concreto, hacia el vasto dosel selvático de la Reserva de la Biosfera Maya, en el norte del país”, dice parte del texto del artículo.

Los lugares que destacan

  • Sitio Arqueológico Uaxactún, Petén
  • Parque Nacional Yaxhá, Petén
  • El Mirador, Petén
  • Parque Nacional Tikal, Petén
  • Lago de Atitlán, Sololá

Photos by @babaktafreshi | This impressive Maya temple in Tikal is called the Great Jaguar, and you can hear the big cat if you spend enough time in this jungle at night. Protected in a national park in Guatemala, jaguars freely roam around the temples after dark, when tourists have departed. When I visited recently with special permission to document the site at night, the tropical sky had cleared after thunderstorms. Taurus (the bull) and the Pleiades star cluster (also known as the Seven Sisters) were rising above the 47-meter (154 feet) pyramid, which dates to 750 A.D. There are both old stories and new studies on the importance of the Pleiades to the Maya (swipe for a closer view). One myth is that the people of Tikal believed they came from Pleiades, and the seven important pyramids of the Grand Plaza in Tikal represent the pattern of Pleiades. There is no doubt that some Maya pyramids were built to reflect astronomical events, and from atop Tikal’s pyramids, perhaps ancient astronomers tracked the movements of celestial objects, keeping time for rituals and agriculture. The Maya calendar was one of the most advanced of the ancient world, thanks to astronomical observations. When Pleiades rises at sunset and is visible for the entire night in November, that’s when the dry season and harvesting begin. Tikal is one of the largest sites of Maya civilization, and at its peak was home to at least 60,000 Maya.

On this 10-second single exposure, the Southern Cross and Coalsack dark nebula are on the right, and Carina Nebula hangs above the iconic Church of Good Shepard. I was there as a speaker for the Starlight Conference, which focused on natural night values and light pollution. The popular white-blue LEDs have major effects on wildlife and humans that very few are aware of. Worldwide experts came to Tekapo to discuss this global problem and solutions.
