Paying bills in Guatemala

Hello everyone,

What bills do you pay? If you are renting, are bills included in the price of rent, and is this common practice in Guatemala?

How can you pay your bills (e.g. online, at provider's store, at the post office)? Which is the most convenient or reliable way?

With what frequency are different bills sent in Guatemala? Are there different deadlines for payment?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


The electric (luz) bill comes once monthly. You can pay it in person at their office or you can pay it online if you have a Guatemalan bank account. There are significant penalties for not paying on time, and they are very prompt with turning off your electricity if you are three months in arrears.
