The nation's capital city, Guatemala City, is situated around 120 kilometres to the east of San Sebastian.
Break out on an adventure to some nearby natural sights. 45 kilometres out of San Sebastian, San Pedro Volcano is all yours to discover. Cerro El Baul National Park, 35 kilometres away, is another excellent spot to relax in the outdoors.
If you're considering travelling further afield, go 4 kilometres northeast to Santa Cruz Mulua. This is where you'll discover the Museo de Arqueología y Etnología and Parque Acuático Xocomil. We also suggest heading to Retalhuleu, 5 kilometres to the southwest, for Museum of Archeology and Ethnology and San Antonio de Padua Church.
Feel like visiting Quetzaltenango Cathedral, Quetzaltenango Central Park and the Los Altos Railroad Museum? Make tracks to Quetzaltenango, 35 kilometres to the northeast, and set up base. These attractions, along with Trama Textiles and La Democracia Market, are all nearby.
Whether you enjoy the sophistication of Michelin stars or munching on a simple street snack, sampling the local food and drink is one of the most amazing things about travel. So why not tingle your taste buds by digging into some of the region's finest offerings?
An essential ingredient in the food here is beans (frijoles). One more is chicken. Give them a try if they're not a part of your food repertoire already.
Of course, you can't head home from San Sebastian without sinking your teeth into chiles rellenos (bell peppers stuffed with meat and vegetables) or gallo en chicha (chicken stew). Popular with residents and considered signature recipes, they are an essential experience for any food-obsessed traveller.
You may be eating yourself into elastic-waisted slacks, but coconut flan is more than worth it. This beloved dessert will put your taste buds into overdrive with just a glance.
Good news, beer enthusiasts. You'll discover a few flavourful brews to knock back here. Relax with a glass of Victoria in a comfy bar and be sure to text your pals back at home, 'Wish you were beer'.
A flavoursome bottle of wine can complete any tasty meal, and the best regional wines shouldn't be missed. Château DeFay White Merlot and Château DeFay Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot are the top picks here.
You may be poor in Guatemalan quetzals when it's time for your trip to end, but you'll be rich in amazing experiences. "Hasta la vista" San Sebastian!
