Capital city: Guatemala City.
Currency: Quetzal (in Q1, Q5, Q10, Q20, Q50 and Q100 notes).
Cuisine: Typically you’ll find lots of grilled or fried meat dishes and tortillas – all filling and flavoursome.
Tipping etiquette: 10% is the norm.
Saying hello: “Hola”, or use the informal “que pasa?” which means “how are you?”
WHEN TO GO
Guatemala has one of the most pleasant climates in the Americas with warm days and mild evenings for much of the year. The rainy season is mainly limited to September and October with the rain mainly falling in brief mid-afternoon downpours – the rest of the day is usually calm and warm. If you’re visiting around Easter, don’t miss the Semana Santa celebrations when many cities hold epic catholic processions.
Bright, bold and fume-belching, the Chicken Bus is a Guatemalan icon – just be careful when crossing the street!
