"Business Hours" Guatemala Favorite Tip by AnnaLupilla

Guatemala General: 104 reviews and 81 photos

Favorite thing: In general shops in Guatemala are open from 8am to noon and 2pm to 6pm, Monday to Saturday, but there are many variations. The little tiendas in my street for example are open until 8 or 9 pm, so is the Supertienda Paiz, as well on Sundays.
Many banks are also open like 10am to 1pm Saturday and Sunday.
Official business with government offices is recommended to be done in the morning hours.
Bars close around 1pm in the City of Guatemala, and there cannot be found after-parties like elsewhere in the world, despite you organize one yourself.
