Doing out-of-the-norm attractions can be the absolute most rewarding and amusing fun one can have either while traveling or where you live.
That is exactly what we did. Cause, quite frankly, I am officially out of ideas of things to do in Guatemala.
So when in doubt – find the unusual.
What To Do in Guatemala – Car Racing
One day, a while back we were coming back from a road trip to the beaches of El Salvador when we got stuck behind a huge line of cars. As we edged our way past the commotion I realized it was a race track and it was raging.
Immediately I made an mental note to check out the schedule for the Autodromo’s next car race.
The day we went they had several cars racing. But the main attraction were Mini-Coopers.
And let the fun begin. Honestly, if you have a free day to visit the track, it’s so worth it. I’ve never done this before but my boys and I truly had a blast.
Information about the Autodromo in Guatemala:
You can either go in through general admission – $5 per person
Or to have access to the full pits and bleachers – $10 per person
Kids are free
What’s a race track without beautiful, half naked or spandex-ed girls to look at.
Yes, the girls were probably as big of an attraction as the actual cars.

Chatting up the racers.
In my opinion, most of the car racers were too arrogant to give any of their fans the time of day. As though they were holier-than-thou. It’s the ones that stopped, gave high fives to the little kids that idolized them were the ones that got all of our attention and rooting. And at the end of the day, the fans are just as important as the talent.
Mini Cooper and baby fun
Excitement in the bleachers.
It took us a while to find these bleachers. There are tons but they are directly in the sun. We were almost ready to head out when we found these shaded, comfy ones and ended up staying for hours more.
The race is on
More cars to watch racing and zooming past us
Go Minis – this was the finale and it was so cute to watch these cars roar past us.
