Did you know that a large percentage of sexy Guatemala women actually have Mayan heritage? Or that Guatemala has one the largest indigenous populations of Mayan descent in Latin America? Indeed, the territory of today’s Guatemala was once at the heart of the famous Maya civilization. Even if the ancient cities have long been reduced to ruins and visited by thousands of tourists as historical monuments, the descendants of the ancient Mayas are very much alive. They constitute around 40% of the Guatemalan population, with a further 40% being of mixed indigenous and European ancestry. The latter group is called Mestizo, and some of the most beautiful women you could ever meet belong to it. The remaining 20% are white Guatemalans of Spanish and German descent and Asian settlers coming from China and Korea. This colorful mixture of races and cultures makes Guatemala unique and gives you a variety of women to choose from, should you decide to go for a Guatemala mail order bride.
We will end this short historical and sociological introduction to this South American country with some facts on its socio-economic and human rights situation. Namely, after being colonized by Spain in the 16th century, Guatemala won its independence three hundred years later. However, its struggle for prosperity was far from over. The subsequent decades were plagued with wars, dictatorships, poverty, and human rights violation. Violence is still prevalent in this country although it has become much safer lately. Guatemala women experience unusually harsh life conditions. They are subject to domestic violence, denied access to health care and get forced to marry at an extremely young age.
Even though the Guatemalan parliament has recently passed legislation banning child marriages, they are still rather prevalent in rural areas. If you venture to Guatemala on your own looking to find a beautiful Guatemala woman to marry, you will probably run into men offering you their 14-year-old daughters or cousins. Since this is illegal by both international and Guatemalan laws, do not accept any of these propositions, no matter how tempting they might sound. To be on the safe side, you should always date women who are at least 20 years of age.
