Hello all.

My girlfriend and I are looking to stay in one place for one or, possibly, two months. We are thinking Xela or Guatemala city, or open to anywhere that is inexpensive.
What do people recommend?

Where would be the best place to look for a short term rental?
I'm thinking there is somewhere better/cheaper than Airbnb.
Any advice is welcomed.
Thank you.

First question is what are you able to afford, second what are you looking to get from the area you live in. If for example you have $500/month or mare and you are looking for a relaxing life style with little drama I would suggest Lake Atitlan. If you don’t mind looking over your shoulder high crime, and the hustle and bustle of a large city I’d think about living in Guatemala City, rent there is between $250 and $2000 per month. Then there’s Antigua where the rents are edging a bit higher. Celia has a mix of all of the above, and rents which probably range very much in line with Guatemala City, but in my opinion much better.
