Sunrise and sunset in Guatemala

Sunrise today: 6:29 h
Sunset today: 17:53 h
(Times for Guatemala City)

Times for sunrise and sunset in Guatemala won't differ much all over the year. The reason is the only fair proximity to the equator. So in summer the sun moves slightly to the north and in the winter slightly back to south, but without much change in the distance. E.g. in the Nordic countries of Europe the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 13 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Guatemala City lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Guatemala City rises at 6:29. The early sunset at 17:53 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in Guatemala?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Guatemala is Puerto Barrios in the region of Izabal. There, the sun rises at 6:23 am and sets at 5:44 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Ocós (San Marcos) at 6:00 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Guatemala City lies on the 15th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Guatemala it only lasts an average of 23 minutes. In June, it's about 24 minutes in Guatemala City, while in December it's 23 minutes.
