Guatemala officially the Republic of Guatemala, is a country in Central America bordered by Mexico to the north and west, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, Belize to the northeast, the Caribbean to the east, Honduras to the east and El Salvador to the southeast.

The name Guatemala, meaning “land of forests,” was derived from one of the Mayan dialects spoken by the indigenous people at the time of the Spanish conquest in 1523.
