Expat life in Guatemala City

Hello! I am thinking about taking a teaching position at Colegio Interamerico. Can anyone give me information about being an expat in Guatemala City or about the school?

Also, I am wondering about the food options...are there organic products? Are there good gyms? Are there bugs? I know that it is a tropical area but I beleive the elevation is higher, therefore, a bit cooler and low humidity. I cannot stand bugs!!

I am a 41 single, female that does not drink...what is there to do on the weekends? Can people smoke everywhere or are there laws?

Is there good public transportation? Is it a good place to bring my bike? What about doctors and the health care system?

I know there are lots of questions, any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
