Guatemala Vacation Rentals

Vacation Rental Homes, Condos, Cabins, Villas & Beach Houses in Guatemala from top rental companies and trusted homeowners.

Guatemala is a country of contrasts, from the bustling urban Guatemala City to the remote mountain villages of Altiplano highlands. It is a colorful country, famous for the magnificent textiles that are made and worn by the indigenous inhabitants. At one point, you could tell exactly where a Mayan woman was from by the type of skirt she wore. Now, multicolored clothing is worn by everyone and vacation rentals often reflect this love of color. A Vacation Rental By Owner might be on the magnificent Pacific Coast, where elegant modern condo rentals are popular. Other vacation rentals may be a rustic cottage by Lake Atitlan with a view of an active volcano or a house rental in historic Antigua, the best preserved Spanish colonial city in Central America despite the 1773 earthquake. Centuries-old ruins in this Unesco World Heritage site are alive with today's picnickers and visitors.

There are 33 volcanoes in Guatemala, and many house rentals offer views of their activity. Hikes up the volcanoes are popular and some hardy souls plan on ash boarding their way back down the slope. Other sports enthusiasts plan their vacation rentals by proximity to kayaking, windsurfing, mountain biking, or even paragliding. Hiking in Guatemala is beautiful, whether you are on an ancient Mayan trade route through the mountains or walking through an orchid-clad forest. There are many types of wildlife to find and photograph, too. 

If you'd rather be shopping, the markets of Guatemala are famous.  A Vacation Rental By Owner often will include a list of personal recommendations for local goods. Many locations have artisan cooperatives where you can watch items being made. While you are browsing, keep an eye out for another famous Guatemalan export: coffee. Nothing compares to the flavor of good Guatemalan coffee grown nearby the place you are staying. Chocolate is another local specialty. Both coffee and chocolate were enjoyed by Guatemalans long before the Europeans arrived to taste it.

Your memories of Guatemala will be enhanced by the comfort of the places you choose to stay. House and condo rentals in Guatemala provide a flexible base of operations for exploring this lovely country and all its variety. Whether you are in a Vacation Rental By Owner or one of the many other vacation rentals available, plan on trying something new during your visit to Guatemala and explore the possibilities.
