You won't need a converter or adapter, as the electrical current in Guatemala is 110 volts, the same as in the United States. Outlets in both countries take U.S.–style plugs.

In a few remote areas lodges and hotels may generate their own electricity. After the generators are turned off at night, light comes only from kerosene lanterns or your flashlight.
