Travelers Diarrhea - While it is not the most pleasurable subject it does happen. If you spend an extended period of time in Guatemala you will get stomach sick at some point. When it happens the best and fastest remedy is take a stool sample to the local laboratory and have it analyzed. Then take the results to a doctor who can read them and prescribe the best medication. The whole procedure will cost around Q100.00 to Q300.00 with medicine included. Laboratorio Aguilar
