Clearly inspired in Paris' iconic "Avenue des Champs Elysées", "Avenida La Reforma" had its construction started in 1892 and was inaugurated in 1895. Today, it is one of Ciudad de Guatemala's most important throughfares, connecting its Northern and Southern areas. It is surrounded by fountains, sculptures, modern buildings and not far from the city's famous "Zona Viva" - where hotels, restaurants and nightclubs are mainly located. On Sunday mornings, "Avenida La Reforma" is partially closed to cars and becomes a paradise for bykers and pedestrians. Watch your belongings at all times and avoid walking alone in the evenings. Anyway, enjoy!

Avendia la Reforma is the main road in Guatemala city. There are a few high rise buildings (banks etc) and a few historical and government buildings on it. A few statues, a cycle and a walking path do not make it worthwhile for an evening stroll.

Wide divided streets with nice green walking area in between. Small monuments along the way. Heavy traffic with polluted air around.

Very nice layout and walkable from many hotels Well maintained trees If you fly the 24 of December, do not miss fireworks from the plane all over Guatemala city and Antigua. Open your window and watch. Worth spending under 15 min to 1 hour walking around. Do not be intimidated by police presence in tourist areas. "Refaccciones" mean light meals.

It does have a few monuments representing (supposedly) the countries that signed the agreement but judging by the monument that had my country’s name it’s not very accurate.
Still the grass is very well kept and the surroundings are clear of trash so it does make a nice walk to get a feel of the metro area.

Not very impressive. There are some shops along the way that you can check out. There is a rum outlet shop on the avenue where you can get the best ones at a discounted price.

The widest road in Guatemala City and probably in the whole of Guatemala. It runs through the city like a spinal column and is the main road from the airport.
If you want spend some time in the evening, stand on the pedestal near the obelisk and observe the traffic which is completely chaotic.
The chicken buses running at full speed and you need to hold your heart while crossing it. I used to cross the road along with other Guatemalans who seemed to disregard the traffic.
