Local dishes: Guatemalan cuisine can’t compete with that of Mexico, although standard Mexican fare such as tortillas and tacos can be found. You will encounter a lot of grilled or fried meat. Beans and rice are often the cheapest and best alternative, and the country has a surprising number of Chinese restaurants. Coffee is available everywhere — sometimes spectacularly good, but the best beans are typically exported. Beer is prevalent, in light and dark versions, and rum and Quetzalteca are the nation’s favoured drinks. Good reading: I, Rigoberta Menchu is the autobiography of Guatemala’s Indian Nobel Peace Prize winner — a very moving story of Mayan life and government repression. Time and the Highland Maya by Barbara Tedlock is an anthropological study of the Quiché Indians of Momostenango. Unfinished Conquest: The Guatemalan Tragedy by Victor Perera looks at the history of the Maya and their situation in modern Guatemala. The Central America Fact Book by Tom Barry & Deb Preusch examines the economic, political and military role of the USA in Central America.
