Salamá Services

Salamá being a sizeable town, there are plenty of financial and health services, as well as shops. There is no tourist information office here yet, but an Inguat delegate has been named for Baja Verapaz and should have a contact point by 2010. The girl at the information desk of the municipality is helpful if you have specific questions. Otherwise check out for a good overview of the town.

The police (Tel 7940-0050) is one block north of the parque central on 7a avenida 6-37, and there is a post office across the street on 7a avenida 6-18, open 8.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.

There are plenty of banks, including Banrural on the parque central, with a 5B ATM which accepts the main international cards (Visa, Mastercard, Cirrus), while the Banco Agromercantil a half a block away on 6a avenida does change; it has a 5B ATM too. Western Union is everywhere in town.

There is a hospital a bit out of town (Tel: 7940-0125) as well as plenty of small clinics (most around 7a and 8a avenida and 4a calle), and lots of pharmacies, including Farmacia San Mateo 30 meters from the western corner of the parque central.

You can use all manners of communications services at the cybercafés Matrix (5a calle 6-26, open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.) and Garna (8a avenida 6-70, open 8 am to 8 pm), where Internet costs $1 per hour and skype is installed on most computers.

There is a supermarket Despensa Familiar halfway down 5a calle, just before the market.
