Guatemala is small country situated in Central America and is bordered by Mexico, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador. It is the most populous country and has a diverse environmental ecosystem. Its name is derived from “Goathemala,” which means “the land of the trees” in the Maya-Toltec language.
It is a country filled with volcanoes, mountains and beaches on the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea and three of its 30 volcanoes are still active. The majority of its area is land mass with a small coast line. About one-third of the population lives in highland villages instead of the warm and humid coastal lowlands.
Guatemala is a constitutional democratic republic. It has a multi-party system where a president is elected and assisted by a vice president and Council of Ministers. New laws are passed by Congress.
Tourism has become one of the main economic drivers in the country. The economy of Guatemala is predominantly dependent on agriculture.
