Photoblog: Visit Guatemala from the sky

Since January, I have been working for an French travel agency named Quetzal Motivo. We're doing incentive tours for clients from France & Belgium. Incentive means money and means traveling in a different way from the other tourists. In Guatemala, the fastest way to travel from a point to another point is by helicopter and I had the opportunity to go with a group to Chichicastenango and the Lake Atitlan by helicopter from Antigua.

You really enjoyed the happenings when you are in the sky on board on the helicopter. You will see all you'll want to see.

Yes traveling by helicopter is an awesome experience, to see the city under a different angle!
