Guatemala was the land in which the legendary Mayan civilization once existed and their archeological sites remain a tourist attraction to this day. Their currency - the Guatemalan Quetzal - is named after the beautiful Quetzal bird, whose feathers were once used as a currency in the Mayan times.
Another interesting connection to Guatemala that we will all have is the fact that the first ever chocolate bar was invented in the country during the Mayan times! Chocolate residue dating back to 460-480 AD was found in a vessel in the country, which means one thing we know about Mayans is that they definitely had a sweet tooth!
