What is the local currency?
The local currency is the Guatemalan Quetzal.
Should I change money before I go?
We always recommended to carry some local currency, you can change directly at the airport or local banks. They are many ATM’s to get US$ or Q. All locations in Guatemala and Belize will accept all major credit cards.
How much should I budget per day for extras?
Around £30 - £50 a day should be plenty, but this is guidance only as you know your spending patterns better than we do.
Is it customary to tip?
For everyday life, we recommend between £4-8 a day which you can give to your guide to distribute equally. Then for your guide and driver, it is customary, though not compulsory to tip them around £3- £5 a day, this would normally be given at the end of the adventure and is completely up to you and whether you feel they have earnt it. For restaurants and bars giving a 10% tip is fairly normal in Guatemala & Belize
