When to go

The dry season, from November through May, is the most pleasant time, weather-wise, to be in Guatemala. Along with summer holidays, however, this is also the busiest time.


Although the rain may restrict some activities during the wet season, it’s still worthwhile planning your trip for this time of year, particularly as you’ll be more likely to pick up accommodation bargains.


If you’re planning to be in the area around Easter, try to be in Guatemala for Semana Santa (Holy Week), the highlight of the country’s festival calendar.
