About Guatemala

Guatemala is located in Central America and is bordered by Mexico to the north and west, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, Belize and the Caribbean to the northeast, and Honduras and El Salvador to the southeast.

A representative democracy, its capital is Guatemala City. Guatemala's abundance of biologically significant and unique ecosystems contribute to Mesoamerica's designation as a biodiversity hotspot.

Guatemala is mountainous, except for the south coastal area and the vast northern lowlands of Petn department. Two mountain chains enter Guatemala from west to east, dividing the country into three major regions: the highlands, where the mountains are located; the Pacific coast, south of the mountains; and the Petn region, north of the mountains.

All major cities are located in the highlands and Pacific coast regions; by comparison, Petn is sparsely populated.

The country has 14 ecoregions ranging from Mangrove forests, to both ocean littorals with 5 different ecosystems. Guatemala is a country of distinct fauna. It has some 1246 known species.
