The Republic of Guatemala is located in Central America. Its neighbors are Mexico to the north and west, and Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador to the east. It is the most populous country in Central America. Its capital, Guatemala City, is home to 2.5 million Guatemalans. Guatemala won its independence in 1821 after almost three centuries as a Spanish colony. Its official language is Spanish, although it has 23 officially- recognized Amerindian languages. Guatemala’s agricultural exports include coffee, sugar, petroleum, apparel, bananas, fruits, vegetables, and cardamom. Its natural resources are oil, timber, nickel and gold.
