#Dyl you could try visiting Solola, any town around the shore of Atitlan Lake; the way they charge you money anywhere in Guatemala depends on the attitude that you have, Try to learn hoy to bargain in spanish or in a native tonge in the countryside and they will probably charge you less.

I live in guatemala city and this is way too expensive. who ever wrote this lives in the rich part of the city.

Prices are more expensive than these. I guess the unit conversions has created a bit of confusion among people filling out the survey. Other, are the prices in Restaurants are not even close. Inexpensive restaurant expect to pay around 6usd, Meal for 2 three course range 30 usd minimum, and the drinks are at least double the price. Impossible to pay 1 usd in a restaurant for a drink!
