Types Of Accommodation In Guatemala

Accommodation options in Guatemala are as varied as the country's landscapes. Travelers on a shoestring budget can stay in dirt-cheap hostels or even set up camp, whereas those looking to live it up in Central America can book their stay at luxury 5-star hotel in Guatemala City's Zona Viva. Of course, in Guatemala you will also find everything else in-between: colonial hotels in Antigua, beach cabanas along the Pacific Coast, eco-lodges in the Petén region, and more.

Other, lesser-known options include posadas (inns) and casas de huéspedes (guesthouses). In many ways, these small, family-run affairs are the most intimate way to get to know Guatemala. If you are planning on staying for a few weeks or more, the best way to immerse yourself in Guatemalan culture is to arrange a home stay with a Guatemalan family. This will not only help you improve your Spanish, but you are pretty much guaranteed to learn a whole lot about Guatemalan culture.
