One of aspect that surprises many people who visit Guatemala for the first time is how polite and kind Guatemalans are, especially so in the rural areas and small villages. Often they will greet you with a good morning or afternoon. Guatemalans are always ready to offer you a smile for no particular reason.
The exception to this behaviour is, of course, when they are behind a steering wheel. Let’s just say Guatemalans suffer from the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
