Land in Guatemala has become increasingly scarce.
Agricultural land: in places like the U.S.A. at the most fertile regions of the country, you can get an acre for about $5 K.
If you are lucky, for that money you can get a 10th of an acre here in Guatemala.
Prices are even worse for commercial or residential real state; In places like La Antigua Guatemala, a house might be as expensive (or more!) as buying property in a wealthy suburb of N.Y. City or Boston.
This scarcity and high prices for land have pushed Guatemalans to use every inch available as we can see here.

Even residential complexes are forced to construct smaller and smaller houses, at least this one is colorfully charming.

    Land is not so cheap here where I live in Ohio, lots across the street from my home sold for $25,000 an acre and zoning law required that the people buying the land had to buy at least two acres to build a house. The area I live in is a mining and farming area, at least a hours drive outside Cleveland. I agree land prices in Antigua are nuts but it is a pretty nice enclave.
