About Guatemala City
A turbulent history lends a thrilling character to the capital city of Central America's most populous country. While many visitors prefer to make Antigua their base to err on the side of caution, Guatemala City, affectionately known as Guate, offers enough sights and experiences to fascinate most travellers.
Pay a visit to the Palacio Natural de la Cultura, and admire the melting pot of architectural styles, or spend some time browsing through the displays of indigenous art at the Museo Miraflores. For those seeking a deeper look into the local scene, the trendy Cuatro Grados Norte quarter is packed with bars, nightclubs, and restaurants, where live music and locals mingle to create an electric atmosphere.
There's not much by way of natural beauty in the city itself, but one does not have to travel too far to see some of Guatemala's verdant countryside. The active Pacaya volcano is only a day trip away, and hiking tours continue to guide intrepid travellers to the very crater, while giving them an opportunity to take in some of the gorgeous panoramic views on the trail upwards.
As a destination for start-ups, while Guatemala City is not the first thought that pops into most entrepreneurs' minds, but it does have its pros - a skilled local workforce, a strong degree of mobile penetration, a strong local network, and of course - great weather!
