Places to visit with Guatemala City

Where to stay in Guatemala City

For easy access to the historical highlights of Guatemala City, many travelers choose to stay in the old, central district of Zona 1. While plenty of budget hostels and hotels in this area offer decent rooms, some visitors refrain from this part of the city due to its unfortunate reputation for theft and gun crime, especially at night. You'll find safer areas farther south--in Zona 9 and 10--where you can choose from a much wider selection of high-end hotels, while also enjoying proximity to the airport, the metro, and Guatemala City's best nightlife.
