Is The Food The Same Everywhere in Guatemala?


Although the food is similar in many parts of Guatemala, there are regional differences. Most Guatemalan food relies on meat, corn, beans, and tortillas. Cities have more food choices, especially in places like Guatemala City and Antigua, where there are a number of international restuarants.

Along the Caribbean coast, the cuisine tends to be spicier. A tapado is a seafood stew made with coconut milk and plantains. Coastal areas also serve ceviche (raw fish cooked with lime juice), fried fish, and camarones (shrimp).
