Guatemala at Fitur
For the first time, Guatemala became a partner country at Fitur. In January 2023, President Alejandro Giammattei led a delegation that participated in the fair held in Spain.
The authorities explained that this event represented an outstanding opportunity for the country to showcase its strengths and high potential to position itself worldwide as one of the main tourist attractions in the Americas.
On that occasion, President Giammattei had significant meetings, including an encounter with King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain. During the dialogue, the kings learned about the cultural wealth of more than 3,000 years that the Guatemalans possess.
