When to go

by ohaiyo

I have never been to Central America before.

I'm thinking of going to visit the Mayan ruins in Guatemala, Hunduras,and the Yucatan in mid May. Would this be in the rainy season? I don't want to visit when it is hurricane season.

This would be the beginning of the rainy season, where it is likely to rain for maybe a couple hours each day. This will mostly affect your ability to reach remote untouristed places. Hurricane season is not until a few months later.

Re: When to go

Rain is just a fact of life in a Guatemalan May. It is a factor but it doesn't stop anyone from going and doing. Wear a hat and waterproof jacket but GO. It is a beautiful time of year with everything green and blooming. Let us know what you think about the country. It's fun to see it through another person's eyes.

Travel Tips for Guatemala City

Pollo Campero

by la_beba

Pollo Campero (Country Chicken) is the local chicken chain, it's awesome!
Similar to KFC but has its very own distinct flavour.
Pollo Campero began in 1971. Nowadays, it has more than 200 restaurants in Guatemala and in 8 other Latinamerican countries and the U.S.

Plaza de la Constitution

by Stephen-KarenConn

The central square in Guatemala City is variously known as Parque Central (Central Park) and/or Plaza Mayor (the Main Plaza.) Officially it is named Plaza de la Constitution. This is the heart of the infamous Zone One, reputed to be the most dangerous part of the city. However, it is also one of the most attractive areas for visitors since many of Guatemala City's most notable features, such as the Cathedral, museums, National Palace, and National Library, surround the Plaza.

The Plaza is always a center of activity, but especially so on Sundays. I was fortunate to be there in a Sunday afternoon, when thousands of local residents were gathered to stroll, gossip, buy, sell, dance, sing, neck, preach and play. Most of the Plaza is an open paved area, suitable for military parades and the like. There are also splashing fountains where children play and quieter shaded areas, where young lovers seem to occupy every bench.

Guatemala City

by Jim_Eliason

Guatemala City is a sprawling city with a mix of modern, colonial and 3rd world architecture. Due to its high elevation, its climate is very mild. It has enough attractions for 2-3 days of visit. Beware though, I visited on holy week and although there were interesting festivals, most of the museums were closed.

Guatemala City Religious Procession

by thelukey

While my wife and I were wandering around the center of Guatemala City on the third Sunday of October, we happened upon a very impressive religious procession as it wound its way near the main postal office building a few blocks west of the central park. Take a look at what we saw.

If I remember correctly, this impressive castle-like building is the national postal office headquarters.
