Guatemala is the Mayan heartland. The Spanish came in 1519. We declared independence from Spain in 1821.

From 1821 – 1847, we were the seat of power for the Federal Republic of Central America which included most of the Central American states.

In the 20th century, we suffered under dictators backed by the United Fruit Company and the U.S. government. We had a popular revolution in 1944.

A 1954 coup backed by the United Fruit Company led to a Civil War that lasted until 1996. Like other Latin American countries we were caught in violence between the government, right-wing paramilitaries, and left-wing guerillas.

We still suffer from government corruption, but today we have the largest economy in Central America after Mexico. We export fruit, vegetables, flowers and handicrafts. Tourism is important.
