The traditional clothing is also the typical clothing.
Guatemala has a few SURPRISES in its climate , because the country is in Central America, most people assume it has a tropical climate; however, despite the tropical location, Guatemala's mountains alter the weather. While parts of the country have a climate typical of a tropical country, other areas actually see temperatures below freezing. So there for not all of Guatemala is a tropical area. I am suggesting that Guatemala is cooler than most of America.
