Just back from Guatemala....a word of caution

Apparantly the ATM s have been hacked into and it is not advisable to use them, especially in Antigua.. Presenting your card to the teller inside at BAM and actually watching him or her swipe your card might be ok. Also the banks in Antigua would only exchange $200 US a week for quetzales. Of course you can try more banks but the lines are long and after a long wait they may not exchange your dollars. Travelers checks are a thing of the past. Plan ahead but you might encounter some problems. We were in Antigua and Pana. Good luck! other than this our visit was fabulous!!!
