Travel - Guatemala

Guatemala is home to the latest Survivor castaways for the next 39 days of intense competition. Find out everything you need to know about this country, where volcanoes are the highest and most active, and earthquakes are the most devastating.

Guatemala - Where Is It?

Guatemala is located in Central America, bordering the North Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Honduras (Caribbean Sea). It's surrounded by Mexico, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador, and is just slightly smaller than Tennessee. The country consists of three main regions - the cool highlands with the heaviest population, the tropical area along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, and the tropical jungle in the northern lowlands, which is known as the Petén.

Guatemala - A Brief History

During the first millenium A.D., the Maya civilization flourished in Guatemala. After nearly three centuries as a Spanish colony, Guatemala won its independence in 1821, but then experienced many different military and civilian governments, as well as a 36-year guerrilla war, the longest civil war in Latin American history. In 1996, the government signed a peace agreement ending the conflict, which had left more than 100,000 people dead and created over one million refugees.

Guatemala - Survivor Guatemala

In host Jeff Probst's words, the 11th season of Survivor is the toughest one yet. It takes place among the ancient Mayan ruins and ceremonial sites in the harsh jungles of northern Guatemala. The 16 contestants, divided into Nakum and Yaxha tribes, are currently dealing with excruciating triple-digit heat, relentless mosquitoes and crocodile-infested waters as they try to "Outwit, Outplay and Outlast" each other in hopes of winning the $1 million prize. Stay tuned to see who takes the ultimate Survivor title this season!

  • The country's official name is the Republic of Guatemala.

For Daisy, I suggest this: ​The nickname can be Daze. The abilities could include something like Increased Strength, Command Animal, Botany, and so on. The mental state would be easiest if you go with Sane. The personality can be something you'd like to try. That's what I'm doing with my character. ​The bio can explain why her personality is the way it is in a creative way. ​For Elizabeth, I suggest this: To complete the appearance, you can have something like a blouse and a skirt or just simple t-shirt and jeans. ​The personality can include stuff like motherly, firm when she needs to, approachable, and everything you'd expect from a mother. ​I hope this helps!

Just refer to them as who they are such as friend, best friend, older sister, little sister, older brother, little brother, twin sister, twin brother, and so on. ​Don't feel afraid to ask whatever question you have. I love to help and I'm more than happy to do so. Also, I will  not ​ discriminate because discrimination does not help other people. Therefore, feel free to ask me anything.
