Hello there!

As I am approaching the so called "retirement age". I have been wondering...if I'd be able to survive here in the States. Anyways, I've traveled to Guatemala many, many times, and like they say; "I've seen it all" including Antigua Guatemala, and the famous Lake Atitlan. Now, to make this story short; a question to those people who know these areas well: which of these places will be cheaper to live?

Gracias!
Estella

May I ask you how much were you paying for your monthly pad in Xela? Why only for a year? Was this recently that you were there?

Gracias!

Xela!
Quetzaltenango is just a beautiful affordable place to live, free of the city rush, full of culture and delicious foods.
Lived there for a year with just about $700 per month to cover rent and expenses. :)
