Geography for Kids – Guatemala

Guatemala is the fifth largest country of the North American continent. It is a mountainous country belonging to a region referred to as ‘Central America’. With almost 20 million people, Guatemala is the most populous country in Central America.

Guatemala shares both a Pacific Ocean and an Atlantic Ocean coastline and borders four countries: Mexico in the north and west, Belize in the north east, Honduras to the east and El Salvador in the southeast of the country. The longest border is shared with Mexico.
