Argueta gives thorough background information on the country's history, social climate, economy, people, culture, customs and etiquette. The book is divided into two long chapters: daily living and prime living locations. It describes types of residency (temporary, pensioner, permanent), housing considerations, health and safety, employment and finances, travel and transportation, and the best places to live. The resource section, which includes listings of governmental organizations and primary and secondary schools, is also quite thorough. --Chicago Tribune, February, 21, 2010 Did you ever think of just picking up and moving to another country? The travel book publisher Moon has expanded its "Living Abroad" series. New volumes describe living in Panama, South Korea, Guatemala, China and Spain. More than 5.25 million nongovernmental U.S. citizens live abroad, according to the Association of Americans Resident Overseas. While meant for expats, the books also come in handy for tourists who might be spending a few weeks or months in a country as part of study abroad or extended tour. You never know when you'll be back. --Detroit Free Press, February 28, 2010 The content of "Moon Living Abroad in Guatemala" is presented in an easily readable format and covers all the important aspects of daily life in Guatemala.

The author also pays close attentions to important facts and laws regarding residency in Guatemala, as well as the practical details relating to buying property, opening a business, and retiring in Guatemala. The section on "Daily Life" also covers the details of moving to Guatemala, such as housing, language and education, health and safety, employment, finances, and communications. The section on "Prime Living Locations" provides an introduction to the culture, infrastructure, climate, etc. of the most popular destinations for expatriates, such as Guatemala City, Antigua, Quetzaltenango, Lake Atitlán, and several attractive rural regions. The "Resources" section includes useful contact information for banks, government offices and embassies, education, housing, health, communications, employment resources, transportation, prime living locations, etc. "Moon Living Abroad in Guatemala" is one of the latest titles in a series of guidebooks about living abroad in countries worldwide.
