I sometimes forget that people outside of Guatemala read my blog, but obviously, there are some terms that people who have never been here might not understand. A commenter recently brought this to my attention, so I figured I would let you know what a tuk tuk is. These are not exclusive to Guatemala, I’ve seen photos of them in other countries, such as Thailand, as well.
This is a tuk tuk:
It’s a moto taxi with three wheels and a little seat in front for the driver. The handlebars are similar to a motorcycle. These are quick and easy transport around town when a full size taxi is too big. They’re very handy for getting around carpets during Semana Santa (Holy Week).
