Top Guatemala


Postal services in Guatemala are run by a fairly reliable and inexpensive Canadian company, known as El Correo, but international mail can take weeks to reach its destination. A quicker, cheaper form of correspondence is through e-mail, which is easily accessible in most substantial towns and cities in the form of internet cafes. Some hostels provide web-equipped computers as well.

Cell phones are the way to go in Guatemala, and there are a few carriers to choose from, the most visible of the lot being Tigo. Calling the US will run you about the same prices as a local call (about US$0.15 per minute), but the rate substantially increases for calls to other countries. In Guatemala, there are no local area codes, only the eight-digit number. Calling Guatemala from another country requires entering the international access code (usually 00), then the country code (502) and then the eight-digit number.
