Does Guatemala Have Good Seafood?

Guatemala does have good seafood. It's bordered by the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea, so this probably isn't very surprising.

In coastal areas, ceviche (raw fish cooked in lime juice) is popular, as is fried fish and camarones (shrimp). Nicer restaurants - like those in Guatemala City and Antigua - may offer prawns, jumpo shrimp, or seafood risotto.

You'll also find seafood in towns like Flores and Lívingston. Thanks to its Caribbean culture, the seafood in Lívingston is spicier than the rest of Guatemala. Be sure to try a tapado, a tasty seafood soup, while you're here.
