Guatemala: 2 Best Prepaid SIM Cards Buying Guide (2022)

Guatemala – known for its incredible volcanic landscape, the Mayan culture & stunning lakes.

While some countries lack green nature (such as forests), the name Guatemala means the place of many trees.

Guatemala lives up to that definition.

But what can you do in this country? A lot.

There are plenty of cool hiking trails to and around volcanoes.

You can also chill and swim in plenty of lakes, such as the Natural Monument Semuc Champey.

Or explore Ancient Mayan cities, like Tikal, and explore pyramid rules.

Being bored in Guatemala? No way!

But before you start bombarding your social media following with all your Guatemala experiences, be aware that international roaming can be expensive.

That is why many travelers simply hate this feature.

Luckily, there is still a way to stay connected throughout the day while exploring Guatemala – by using a Guatemalan local SIM card.

That way, you can enjoy local rates.

So, how expensive are SIM cards in Guatemala?

You can get a Guatemalan SIM card for 10 GTQ (1.30 USD) from Claro or Tigo in their stores. For 199 GTQ (26 USD), you can purchase a Claro SIM card with additional perks. SIM cards are also sold at Guatemala City-La Aurora International Airport (GUA – Claro only).

Those are low prices for SIM cards, huh?

But that is not all – the cost of mobile data is low in Guatemala too!

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Guatemala. Let’s do this.

Buying a SIM Card in Guatemala Guide (logos of Claro & Tigo)

Original publication: 10th of January 2020. Last updated: 19th of September 2022.


Table of Contents

Can You Buy a SIM Card in Guatemala?

Anyone living in or visiting Guatemala can buy a Guatemalan SIM card from Claro (including Movistar & Tuenti) and Tigo in their stores with no restrictions.

You do have to comply with the SIM card registration regulations.

Moreover, you need a phone that supports the frequencies used in the country (preferably all of them to have the most optimal experience while in Guatemala).

Furthermore, you need to have a SIM-lock-free device.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Guatemala?

You can get a Guatemalan SIM card in Tigo and Claro stores. They are also sold at Guatemala City-La Aurora International Airport (GUA).

You can expect to pay the following for Guatemalan SIM cards:

  • Claro Guatemala (including Movistar & Tuenti Guatemala): 10 GTQ & 199 GTQ
  • Tigo Guatemala: 10 GTQ

TIP: Check out my SIM card prices lookup tool for a detailed overview of SIM card starter pack benefits (for Guatemalan SIM cards and SIM cards worldwide).

Can You Use Your Phone in Guatemala?

Guatemala uses GSM for its cellular communications, meaning that you need a GSM-capable phone to use your phone in the country. CMDA-phones will not work in Guatemala, but there is about a 99% chance you have a GSM phone anyway.

Besides that, you need to be aware of the ITU regions to determine whether your phone will work in other parts of the world.

Guatemala uses American frequencies, which are used in the Americas (North-, Central– & South America + the Caribbean – ITU Region 2).

Phones sold in the Americas typically have no issues when using their phone in other ITU Region 2 countries.

In Africa, Asia (including the Middle East), Europe & Oceania (ITU Regions 1 & 3), they typically use European frequencies, meaning phones bought in those regions can be used in countries using European frequencies without issues.

ITU Regions Map

If you purchased your phone in the Americas (ITU Region 2), you should not experience any issues with using your phone in Guatemala.

If you bought your phone in Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania (ITU regions 1 & 3) and have a low/medium-end device without Tri-Band or Quad-Band support, then there is a possibility you cannot use your phone when in Guatemala or can only use slower networks (3G or 2G).

If you have a medium/high-end device with Tri-Band or Quad-Band support, you can use your phone in Guatemala (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE.

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Guatemala

Guatemala has two mobile operators:

  • Claro Guatemala (including Movistar & Tuenti Guatemala)
  • Tigo Guatemala

The following frequencies are used in Guatemala:

  • 2G: 850 MHz, 900 MHz & 1900 MHz
  • 3G: 850 MHz & 1900 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 850 MHz (Band 5) & 1900 MHz (Band 2)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Guatemala, check out this page by Will My Phone Work (may be outdated or inaccurate at times).

Again, make sure your phone is unlocked. Otherwise, you will not be able to use any SIM card except the one from your home operator (meaning you have to roam internationally or buy another unlocked phone that does support the frequencies listed above).

If you want to learn how international roaming works, this guide explains it in-depth. If you wonder why it is often so expensive to roam, this article explains the hidden reason they do not want you to know.

A Note about Movistar Guatemala & Tuenti Guatemala

Movistar Logo New
© Movistar

In late 2018, Telefónica, which owns the Movistar brand, indicated that it wanted to sell its assets in several Central American countries, including Guatemala.

In January 2019, Claro Guatemala (by América Móvil) decided to purchase Movistar Guatemala.

Later that year, the sale was finalized, and the Movistar brand was phased out.

Movistar Guatemala had a sub-brand, or MVNO, called Tuenti Guatemala, offering cheaper services.

Tuenti Logo
© Tuenti

After the sale of Movistar Guatemala, the Tuenti Guatemala customers got transferred to Claro Guatemala. The Tuenti brand was also phased out.

As a result, there are only two mobile operators in Guatemala: Claro Guatemala and Tigo Guatemala.

VoLTE & VoWiFi in Guatemala

Both VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G) – also known as HD Voice) and VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi – also known as WiFi calling) are not offered by the mobile operators in Guatemala (yet).

This means that when you make a call, your phone will downgrade to 3G (or 2G when 3G is not available) instead of staying connected to 4G/LTE.

This is also why you often cannot use mobile data while calling if not connected to WiFi.

VoWiFi is, as the name implies, calling on a WiFi connection as opposed to on a cellular network.

5G NR in Guatemala

5G NR is not available in Guatemala as of 2022, and the Guatemalan government has not made any indications of when they will auction 5G licenses.

Best SIM Card in Guatemala

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Guatemala, I recommend going with Tigo. It has the best coverage and the fastest speeds in the country.

Best eSIM in Guatemala

Unfortunately, none of the mobile operators offer eSIM (to prepaid customers) in Guatemala yet.

However, you can get travel eSIMs from Airalo, Holafly & Nomad.

Airalo has the Tikal Mobile eSIMs:

Consider SimCorner's South America Travel SIM card, also with 12 GB, valid for 30 days in Guatemala and (Central+) South America, including El Salvador & Nicaragua.

SimCorner‘s South America SIM card can, in addition to the aforementioned countries, also be used in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru, Puerto Rico & Uruguay.

SIM Card Registration in Guatemala

SIM card registration with your passport information is mandatory in Guatemala. It will be done at the point of sale.

Although you can buy SIM cards from unofficial stores, such as phone shops, you should still visit Claro or Tigo stores and get SIM cards there because of the SIM card registration requirements.

Third-party stores cannot (properly) register SIM cards for foreigners.

Currency in Guatemala

50 Guatemalan Quetzal Bank Note
© Bank of Guatemala/Banco de Guatemala

Guatemala uses the Guatemalan Quetzal with the symbol GTQ (which will be used throughout this guide).

However, prices are often listed in Q. For example, 25 GTQ = Q25 .

For reference, below are some exchange rates between GTQ and USD (US Dollars):

  • 1 GTQ = 0.15 USD
  • 10 GTQ = 1.30 USD
  • 100 GTQ = 13 USD

For up-to-date GTQ:your currency (let's say USD – US Dollar) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

If your credit/debit card charges you foreign exchange fees, get yourself a Wise Borderless Account and Debit Card.

Their fees are MUCH lower than banks, and credit card companies charge you (and Wise is transparent about their fees, unlike banks).

I have saved literal THOUSANDS of Euros, my main currency, when using Wise abroad when traveling compared to my debit and credit cards. Open a Wise account FREE!

Claro Guatemala (Including Movistar & Tuenti)

Claro Guatemala, just Claro, is probably the largest mobile operator in Guatemala.

I say probably because only outdated subscriber numbers are available.

And adding old Movistar Guatemala and Tuenti Guatemala numbers to Claro's numbers, which got transferred to Claro after its acquisition, makes Claro the largest in the country.

Claro, as a company, is active in Central America and South America.

Claro uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1900 MHz
  • 3G: 1900 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 1900 MHz (Band 2)
  • VoLTE: No
  • VoWiFi: No

This is what you will learn about Claro:

Coverage – Claro Guatemala (Including Movistar & Tuenti)

Claro has extensive coverage throughout Guatemala.

4G/LTE is widely available in populated areas (in the south).

However, high-speed reception is lacking up north.

Below is Claro's coverage map:
