Can someone give me contact info for a reliable person in Guatemala City to help with the residency process? Any idea of cost?

In my day US passport foto rules were: B&W (even though color was widely available), no glasses, no smiles, no facial hair, and always a tie. Don't fight the culture and don't be arrogant.
DRThomas replied most recently with:
Sorry, Busman, but in Panama wearing a tie for a passport photo is a common instruction from immigration attorneys. As a whole, Panama seems much more common than many places I've been to, and I've been to about 18 Latin American counties and lived in four of them.

Want to rent a house or apartment near Antigua - 1 or 2 bedrooms would be perfect. Would be willing to rent for 1 to 2 years.

I suggest you use this site to look for rentals in Antigua. http://www.inmoguatemala.com/inmo/busquedasip/Tipo/Alquileresapartamentos/Alquiler_Apartamentos_Guatemala.html To search for something in or near Antigua use the BUSCADOR and where it says DEPARTAMENTOS which means province or state click on SACATEPEQUEZ. And you should be able to stay away from being applied the gringo rates you'll get if you deal with real estate people in Antigua. Good luck to you.

We moved to Panajachel 2 years ago and find it to be quite livable and enjoy very much the people we have met. Is sewage treatment a problem here? Well yeah, welcome to Guatemala. There is a growing concern about this problem and over time something may actually be done about it. Change in this area will occur, but slowly.
