Mexico VS Guatemala : Match 1
How’s the escape route coming? In Mexico, next to the major archaeological sites, there are sumptuous beaches, picturesque colonial cities and breathtaking landscapes. But Guatemala has so much to offer: sumptuous landscapes, active volcanoes, lakes, secular villages lost on the high plateaus…So in the end these are two breathtaking countries! However, in Mexico you will be able to enjoy lively, urban cities that you won’t find in Guatemala, so for outings, head for Mexico Lindo y Querido!

On the internship side! In Mexico, the job market is open and growing, many multinational companies have settled there. The tourism, telecommunications and automotive sectors are just waiting for you! In Guatemala the market is less open… The country suffers from poverty and a very unequal distribution of wealth.

How’s the language thing going? In Guatemala, Spanish is the most important language, and for most of the population it is the only language spoken. In Mexico Spanish is the official language, but in the big cities it is not rare to hear English, Italian or French, which leaves plenty of opportunities.

In Mexico, 45% of the population is under 20 years old and the under 30s represent 63% of the population. So believe us, you’re going to meet people! In Guatemala the majority of the population is between 24 and 54 years old, it’s fun too. But don’t lie to us: at 20 years old, we prefer to be among students 😉
