thanks this will help on my hispanic heritage project

You compiled a good list! Thank you. Also, you forgot Erick Barrondo. He won the silver medal at the Men’s 20km Racewalk in the 2012 Summer Olympics. First Olympic medal for Guate.

Well, this is an interesting question, that can be answered in many ways. There is famous people for the things they have accomplished, for the money they have made, for the way that they have made their money, and so on. What this list is about is of famous Guatemalans, that I am aware of, that are known not just inside Guatemala, but also in other countries for their achievements, or just for their fame. Any suggestions are welcome. These are the ones that make my list:

im proud couse im from Guatemala and you forgot mis universo

Rigoberta Menchu, human rights activist (Peace Nobel Price Winner)

I guess there are many more, and this list is not of the most important people of Guatemala, although some of they may be, just some names of some famous people.

Sorry! I just noticed when the blog must have been posted. I take the “You forgot” part. Still good list.

What about Ricardo Arjona? Carlos Ruiz? Marco Papa? Arjona is the biggest name to come out of Guatemala.

Thank you! This helps a lot on my Guatemala report

This is cool, I didn’t know how many of those people came from Guatemala. Love this site!
