Guatemala is a beautiful nation in Central America. Despite its beauty and rich cultural heritage, the country is riddled with instability and problems such as corruption, unemployment, and violence against women. Guatemala is still trying to recuperate from the relatively recent end of its 36-year civil war in 1996, which left over 200,000 people dead, the majority being indigenous Mayans.
