Sandwiched between Mexico and El Salvador, Guatemala is a relatively small, tropical country with a striking variety of topographic features. The Sierra Madre mountain range forms the spine of Centra [America and runs parallel to the Pacific Coast. The southernmost extension of this range stretches into Guatemala and its peaks rise to 3,600m in the wild Cuchumatanes region. South of here you will find the now extinct Volcan Tajumulco (4,220m), the highest point in Central America and a must-climb for any keen hiker.
