ImagesGuatemala’s links with the rest of the World have promoted foreign trade all over the world. Its mayor port facilities are Santo Tomas de Castilla on the Atlantic coast and Puerto Quetzal on the Pacific coast, where most important and largest shipping companies dock, transporting products to any port in the World. Likewise, its international banking network with branches in nearly every country of the World, facilitates and eases transactions.

Guatemala, a country known mostly for its coffee plantations, over the years has become the epicenter for cardamom plantations in the world. This due to its climate and fertile lands. Cardamom is one of the most prized spices in the market and has helped farmers to diversify crops, helping to be less dependent on the coffee plantations and thus, providing more suitable life conditions.
