Guatemala City Travel Guide

When to Go

The capital has distinct rainy (May to October) and dry seasons (November to April). Being the center of business and politics, Guatemala City hosts more visitors during the week than on weekends. It's the obvious choice for the beginning or end of your Guatemala visit, since the country's major airport sits inside the city limits.
