Welcome to Xela! We hope that you enjoy your stay here. Quetzaltenango boasts many things to do, both in and around the city, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding fun activities.
Xela’s center has a great small-city feel, as those of us who live here can attest. There are many nice restaurants and happening bars — the prices are pretty good, too. We recommend each of our advertisers, but we’re also sure that you’ll be able to find something good on your own if you try.
The hilly terrain and volcanic activity around Quetzaltenango mean that the surrounding area provides many options for outdoor activity. From breathtaking views (and hikes) to plenty of volcanically-fueled hot places to relax, the city has a lot to offer. We’ve listed a few great excursions in the Interesting Sites section. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, we have explanations and directions for many excursions on our website (http://www.xelamap.com.gt). For other ideas talk to one of the tour companies located around the center.
While Xela is our favorite place, we also really like Lago Atitlán so we decided to start making a map of there, too. It’s called LAGOMAP, original, we know. If you’re up there, be sure to grab one. (www.lagomap.com)
We hope you find this map and guide interesting and useful. If you have any questions or suggestions, please shoot an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of all, though, enjoy your visit!
