InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Guatemala City

Hello to all Americans in Guatemala City! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Guatemala City? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Guatemala City which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Guatemala city is a sprawling metropolis. The Guatemalan capital is a big and diverse city known for its fascinating museums, beautiful colonial architecture, excellent markets, and much more! With the available buses, minibuses, tuk-tuks, and taxis, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the outer zones, which are just a bus journey away from Guatemala City’s center.

Although Guatemala City has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Guatemala City, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
