I have been here 22 1/2 years and I would say that you will recive very little Racisum for your skin color but you will get it because you are not Guatemalan , some times that is good , often people will trust you more on money issues than they would trust a other Guatemalan I once got 8 months behind on my rent due to a problem at the bank and my land lady who will kick out a Guatemalan that is 2 weeks late , let me slide because she knew I would make good , and she is as hard nosed a buisness woman as you will ever meet , but she was right she got her money. Here are some numbers I was beaten and left for dead 4 times in America before I left ( I lived in a meth town ) here I was robbed 14 times BUT NEVER HURT and when I learned Taekwondo even that stopped , compleatly , they want to rob you but not hurt you and defenatly not fight you , if you are at all eager to fight . Learn Taekwondo and don't worry .

My girlfriend is Guatemalateca I am a gringo we have been together and have never had a negative experience here in Antigua, I have friends that are in mixed race relationships and they have no problems. Come on down and enjoy Guatemala. Forget about what the other poster wrote about his experiences. He has been kicked off Lonely Planet Forum and has made other outrageous posts here as well.

The only false post I see is this "He has been kicked off Lonely Planet Forum and has made other outrageous posts here as well." everything I have said is true and I have not been kicked off any forum.
