Guatemala City

Are there any unusual problems with insects or other infestations in housing?

Few in the city. - Jun 7, 2015
Not much. You see the occasional cockroach in the city but it's pretty rare. The houses and apartments sometimes have silverfish or ants, but again, it's rare. - Apr 23, 2014
Bugs were not a problem in Guatemala city perhaps because of the altitude. Some cities and areas on the Pacific and Atlantic coasts might have some problems but nothing to be concerned about. - Jan 3, 2014
Mosquitoes in the low-lying areas, but definitely not as buggy as some countries! - Nov 7, 2011
Mosquitoes. Bring bug spray. - May 2, 2010
