"Languages - Getting along with English (or not??)" Guatemala Favorite Tip by AnnaLupilla

Guatemala General: 104 reviews and 81 photos

Favorite thing: Although English is said to be THE universal language itself, it is highly recommendable to know some basic words and phrases by entering Guatemala, as, besides tourist resorts, it is fairly difficult to find English-speaking people. No need to speak Spanish fluently, though. Also should be mentioned that even little knowledge of the local language can open doors throughout the country and if you once entered the local society be aware of their kindness ;-)
