Internet Services Lake Atitlan for travelers and those working remotely can be a challenge to find reliable Internet and WiFi, however, I found a reliable solution.
I use my phone and go to any shop or tienda and pay Q100 for a month’s worth of “data,” as it is called, connect my phone to the USB port on my computer, and I am online and working with great, reliable speed.
If you are coming to Guatemala, you will need to have a Guatemala chip added to your phone in order to have a Guatemala phone number, if you have a phone that allows dual chips. The chip costs Q40 and comes with some data.
Whats App works fine, email, and social media without as we all agree to live at the Lake outage of services and or how electricity goes out often.
No contract is required you pay monthly which is cheaper than having a permanent service with a provider. Most charge from Q250 and way upwards per month.
