Guatemala: Camping

Land of Eternal Spring

Guatemala Camping

There are relatively few opportunities for camping in Guatemala, even though its stunning scenery might be made for a camping holiday. You can camp for free on the beaches in Guatemala, but you need to be aware of any dangers that may be present in the local area. The same level of vigilance is needed for camping inland in Guatemala, as there are very few recognised camp-sites. You also need to be mindful that the climate in Guatemala is very humid, making keeping yourself, your clothes and belongings dry quite a challenge. Guatemala is also prone to tropical storms and, in September, hurricanes could present a severe hazard. All in all, given the abundance of cheap hospidajes in Guatemala and other accommodation even in some of the most rural areas, you may be better seeking other sleeping options.
