Best time to travel to Guatemala City
Visit Guatemala City between November and April to take advantage of the dry season. All Souls’ Day in early November offers a look into traditional Guatemalan culture. Holy Week in the spring is a colorful, celebratory occasion. For a quieter visit, travel during the rainy season, between May and October, when showers don’t last longer than a couple hours.
