Guatemala Flag

Guatemala is a state in Central America, in the south of the Yucatán Peninsula. The country has two coasts, in the east a narrow access to the Gulf of Honduras, part of the Caribbean Sea, and in the south-west the Pacific coast. Guatemala is the most populous state in Central America and at the same time one of the poorest countries in the world. Guatemala’s economy is shaped by the close involvement of large companies with politics and the military. Remittances from Guatemalans who have emigrated to their families are of great importance. In the United States alone, 1.6 million Guatemalans are believed to be illegal immigrants.

Guatemala: Guatemala City

Guatemala City is located in the highlands, in the southern part of the country. 1.125 million people live here. The place was already 800 BC settled by the Maya .

Earthquakes repeatedly destroyed the city, which was particularly strong in 1976. In the old town you can only find low houses, since after the earthquake in 1918 only two-story buildings could be built.

In 2007 and 2010, large holes suddenly opened in the ground, swallowing people and buildings. It has not been clarified whether it is a question of intrusions in the sewer system or undersinking.
