Really full garden Posted April 1, 2009 Report Share Posted April 1, 2009 Most of my friends and family in the States have the impression that everything in Guatemala must be very cheap and that the cost of living must be very low.Nothing could be further from the truth.Guatemala City is the second most expensive city in Latin America. I just got my latest electricity bill and divided the total by the kwh used and my real cost per kwh is $0.27 per kwh. I think my brother in Houston ,Texas pays around $0.10. Our service is incredibly bad and our electricity is out atleast 8hrs per week.We had an outage in January that lasted 3.5 days! Everyone here has to have generators to survive.
